The rustic farm-style setting of Die Houthoop is ideal for visitors to Namaqualand who would like to experience true Namaqualand hospitality. Houthoop is ideal for nature lover who would like to see Namaqualand in all its splendour. The flower season starts from June to October when winter rains have converted the veldt to a green “winter wonderland”.
We have a quaint chapel on the farm which is ideal for any christening or wedding services.
Informal walking trails are available. You might see the “meerkat” or suricate, a small mammal while walking. Plants can be identified and for the inquisitive person, there is a world on insect life.
4 en-suite self catering units
25 rustic huts each sleeping 2 people
10 campsites with electrical points and showers
The lounge in the guest house is available to all visitors where they may relax; make use of the private bar facilities and catch up on current affairs on DSTV and of course all the sporting action.
Meals are also be served in our restaurant area or for a more informal dinner, we recommend our outdoor venue, the Visbeen, for a great seafood experience.
The Visbeen / Fishbone is an outdoor venue where one can gather to enjoy good company and food especially during one of our team building exercises.
The generous meals that are served are prepared to perfection. Braais (barbeques) and "potjies" served with salads are the standard. Seafood and game meals can be prepared upon request at an extra cost.
