Bunnies & Guinea Pigs

Children will love our little touch farm. Please be gentle with the guinea pigs and bunnies. Cuddles and feeding strictly under parental supervision only.    Our fluffy friends are very precious to us. Tiny kids do not have the hand control to prevent them from squeezing....

ablutions

Ablutions for nature lovers and hobbits

Centrally situated, unisex, quirky, hobbit-like. The rock and thatch buildings have mud walls and glass details. They are labors of love, handcrafted from reclaimed and recycled materials. There are 4 hot water showers, 1 bath and 4 flushing loos. They may be unconventional and rustic but dirty they are not. They are well cared for and cleaned daily. Loos make use of septic tanks; please flush only toilet paper

Water is drinkable and campsite taps are few

4 fresh water taps service all 30 campsites sites. Water is a scarce resource, so stretch your legs, socialize or bird watch. Do use a bucket to wash your vehicle if absolutely necessary, but not the hose pipe. Please use water sparingly.

camping

Electrical sites available - Solar is best

Campsite has 10 standard points and capacity is VERY limited. (lights and small camping fridge ONLY). No appliances with elements please (kettles, hotplates, hairdryers etc) they trip everything. We reserve the right to unplug offending equipment. We encourage the use of solar panels. Noisy generators are not welcome. There are no bright security lights in and around the campsite, because you can see the stars better without! Please bring a torch. Ablutions are well lit and solar lamps are available if Eskom leaves us in the dark.

recycle

Rubbish is separated and sorted                  PLEASE DO YOUR BIT - use the bins provided

Yellowwood Forest is GREEN and proud of it. Please separate your waste into the bins provided. It makes the planet happy.

Parking

There is only space for one vehicle per site. There are no specific allocated parking spots as the campsite is quite organic. Park near or next to your site. Should you wish to give yourselves extra space you need to park in the visitor parking area.

Dogs and Wildlife

Sorry strictly NO Dogs, unless by prior arrangement. We love nature, naturally, but don’t feed the monkeys or leave food out. Also don’t bring doom foggers or zappers to dematerialize the bugs. Mozzies excluded.

Braai Areas and Camp Fires

These are small, simple stone circles cemented low in the ground. There are no built in braai grids but a few are available from reception. There is one large, circular, elevated braai site for communal use and it’s well lit.

Bags of firewood are available to purchase. Please don’t collect wood from the forest
