Softwaters Farm is a working farm which produces a range of fruit and nuts; Macadamia nuts the main crop is supported by Pecan nuts, Avocados and Litchis. The cropping season normally runs from late February to July. Litchis are harvested in the middle of summer and over the Christmas holiday "festive"season. It is advised that 4x4 vehicle are a must if there is rain and the road do get slippery and its not ideal for low clearance vehicles.

The Guesthouse has been built from the remains of the original farm homestead. The character of the old house has been maintained during its transformation, which has taken 9 years. Please be aware not all the walls are straight and corners square! Rooms are comfortable with direct access to secure private gardens.
Apart from the busy farm and beautiful scenery we have two accommodation units, The Cottage (2 Pax) and The Main House (4 Pax), which are fully furnished and equipped to make your stay as pleasant as possible.

Area Information:
Lying at the foot of the densely forested Soutpansberg mountain range, Louis Trichardt and the surrounding area is the land of litchis, bananas, mangoes, nuts, tea and coffee - a rugged hot terrain famous for the giant baobab and the indigo mountains in whose shadow it rests.

A typical ‘boere’ town, Louis Trichardt is small, charming and popular because it serves as a thoroughfare for all of those coming from or going to the Kruger National Park. The national road, the N1, runs right through the town, which makes it an important commercial, industrial and residential centre in this northern part of the country - no surprise that it is regarded as the ‘gateway to Africa’.

Louis Trichardt, known briefly as Makhado, recently reverted to its original name after a court ruled that the change that led to the town being renamed Makhado in June 2003 be set aside. A lot of controversy surrounded the initial name change to Makhado, after a Venda King who ruled the region during the mid to late 1880s. Various Afrikaner groups and a group of Shangaan, Pedi and Indian residents, who considered Makhado an oppressor, were amongst those who spoke out against the name change, and a statue of Makhado that replaced that of Louis Trichardt was vandalised within months of its unveiling.

The Schoemansdal Open Air Museum gives one a good idea of just what it was like for early pioneers, like Louis Trichardt and Hans van Rensburg. The Ben Lavin Nature Reserve, fairly close to Louis Trichardt, not only offers some fairly fascinating archaeological sites, mammals, birds and wonderful trees, but mountain biking, hiking and game drives make it a must, and the local fruit route to farms that grow a variety of fruit and nuts, is an added bonus if you’re staying in the area.
