The Paardeberg is one of two granite mountains in the area (the other is Paarl mountain) and, with its extraordinary mix of unique vegetation, is a botanist’s heaven. The plants on the mountain include strandveld (‘beach plants’), Cape Mountain fynbos (‘fine bush’, which is found only in the Western Cape), and renosterveld (‘rhinoceros field’, whose dark appearance gives the region, Swartland (‘black land’), its name.

Dragonridge, the long mountain running along one side of the farm, is readily accessible by high-clearance vehicles, or on foot. If you like your hiking a little rougher, you can take the more direct, scrambling route from the house to the top of Dragonridge. Alternatively, you can climb the beautiful – and wilder – Sonkop Peak.


Your Wedding

Just an hour from Cape Town, at an enchanting setting in the Paardeberg is the ideal venue for that unpretentious wedding at Fynbos you've been looking for. As a farm and nature reserve we are valued by those who appreciate fine quality but not over the top extravaganza. You can create the ideal mood for your special day with the choice of The Pavilion, The Farmhouse, The Chapel, courtyards, patios, wrap around verandas and beautiful gardens. While Johan  crafts that unique meal that you're dreaming about, Diana makes sure that the necessary aesthetics are in place to give that event just the right atmosphere. Fynbos offers exclusivity - you'll not be sharing the place with anyone else, and you'll have all the time in the world.
