If you are longing to escape for a much-deserved break away from city noise, hurry and stress, we welcome you to The Woodpecker Guest House in Ficksburg, where you can be assured of the highest standards.
Perfect for families or groups looking for adventurous, fun-filled weekends and relaxation, The Woodpecker Guest House is also the ideal getaway for companies wanting that away-time for team building.

We are centrally situated on the Maluti Route, nestled amidst the Eastern Free State. The majestic Malutis form a backdrop of purple haze in summer and transform to snow-capped peaks during winter. Up in the hills of the Maluti Mountains are numerous caves with lovely examples of San rock art. The town of Ficksburg is the gateway to Lesotho and the Katse Dam, which is definitely something to see. Ficksburg is best known today for its annual Cherry Festival, the oldest festival in South Africa, which takes place each November. This region offers its natural beauty and unlimited possibilities for outdoor enthusiasts, such as a dinner cruise along the Meulspruit Dam, fly-fishing in the mountain streams, quad biking, pony trekking, hiking, and in winter snow skiing in Lesotho.

We look forward to having you stay at The Woodpecker and experience the magic of Ficksburg and its beautiful surroundings!
