Welcome to The Funny Farm Shire!

Experience country living amidst the peace and natural beauty of the stunning Wilderness Lakes District. The Funny Farm Shire is situated in a rural, sunny location next to the beautiful wetlands of the Garden Route National Park. There is abundant birdlife on the farm and adjoining wetlands, which can be seen close up at the Malachite Bird Hide just 400m from the farm gate. One of our most outstanding features is the magnificent view of Langvlei Lake, which is a large protected bird wetland and an internationally designated Ramsar site.

The farm has eight hectares of elevated, thick indigenous forest that can be experienced close up when doing the beautiful Lonely Mountain Trail, which is about a 30 minute walk, taking you through the forest, with shady places to stop and have a rest while admiring the stunning view over the lakes.

The Funny Farm Shire consists of 4 lovely self-catering units, which are professionally built cob houses. All the units feel cosy, natural and uncomplicated for your convenience, and are well insulated (lovely and cool in summer and retain the warmth in winter). Each unit has its own secure garden area.

The Wilderness Milkwood Village is located 14km away from the farm and offers a variety of shops, restaurants, medical facilities, hairdressers and a laundry service. The scenic route takes you along the edge of the beautiful Langvlei Lake, past the Brown Hooded Kingfisher hiking trail, along the banks of island Lake, across the railway bridge at Ebb and Flow National Park, past the Half Collared Kingfisher hiking trail and along the Wilderness lagoon with its board walk.

The Funny Farm Shire is a special place for those wanting to slow down and rest in nature’s tranquility away from the everyday life. Resonating The Lord of the Rings theme, with Gandalf’s Wishing Well and Gollum’s Den on the forest walk, which the young ones can enjoy.

Wilderness offers a wide variety of activities for all ages with an abundance of hiking trails, canoe offerings and paragliding available, whilst being surrounded by some of the most pristine beaches our country has to offer. If you love nature and adventure, Wilderness is your playground. For daytrips, you have the option of visiting neighbouring areas including George, Sedgefield, Knysna and Plettenberg. This is definitely a home away from home.
