We stayed in Fig Tree Cottage which is a lovely house over looking the river. The house is large with 3 double en-suite bedrooms (one of which is a twin room), a very large kitchen, fully equipped and a large lounge and stoop.
Everything we could have needed was there, braai, boats for the river and the animals on the farm are fantastic. The display the peacocks gave us were spectacular, owls and monkeys came to visit, we saw fish eagles and there were also miniature horses on the farm which were gorgeous.
Ox Bow Farm is beautifully tranquil, you can sit with your feet up on the railing over looking the river watching the wild life for hours or reading. If you're into surfing or paddling you can paddle along the river and Buffels Bay is 1mins away. Knysna is only 10mins away and yet you feel like you are in the middle of now where.
Our hosts were super nice and the whole farm is in immaculate condition.
We'll definitely return.
