In Room Facilities:

These rooms were all built on the original stone foundations of the three different gold mining ruins, dating back to the 1850's, linked with shady stone pathways, lantern lit at night. All rooms have WIFI, solar powered lights and power points, unaffected by Eskom power outages. We normally have good reception for 'WhatsApp' on your cell phones.

Area Information:

Paardeplaats being 500ha in extent, was proclaimed a Nature Reserve, in 1956, and is a bird lovers paradise. We also have a variety of small game including oribi, grey rheebuck, mountain reed buck, duiker, klipspringers, blesbuck, eland and kudus. There are also baboons, porcupines, honey badgers, brown hyenas, black-backed jackals, rooikatte and at times, sometimes frequently, even leopards. We boarder on the Gustav Klingbiel Nature Reserve on our western boundary.
