Old Mill Lodge & Restaurant - Luxury Riverfront Tents, & luxury waterfront Cabins with mountain view, are situated at the foothills of the Swartberg Mountains just 14 km on your way from Oudtshoorn to the World Famous Cango Caves.
We are a working ostrich farm in season. Watch as we farm with ostrich chicks and fully grown ostriches.
The farm obtained its name from the old mill. All the wheat from the valley was milled on the farm. At that stage there were hundreds of mills all over the country. In October 2003 we changed the old building into an A La Carte Restaurant. The Restaurant is open daily. We specialize in venison and ostrich dishes. For those who don`t like to go to the extreme, enjoy lamb, pasta and many more dishes to choose from.
It is a peaceful farm atmosphere and you will experience an unforgettable stay. We have 4 star luxury accommodation, an a la carte Restaurant and conference & wedding facilities of the highest standard.
