Softwaters Farm Guesthouse is situated along the Soutpansberg Mountain range, at the foot of the Luondo Mountain (Approx 26 km East of Louis Trichardt and 110 km West of Punda Maria gate). The Guesthouse is situated on the farm and is the ideal place to get some well needed R&R.
Softwaters is a working farm which produces a range of fruit and nuts; Machadmia nuts the main crop is supported by Pecan nuts, Avacados and Litchis. The cropping season normally runs from late February to July. Lichis are harvested in the middle of summer and over the Christmas holiday "festive"season.
The Guesthouse has been built from the remains of the original farm homestead. The character of the old house has been maintained during its transformation, which has taken 9 years. Please be aware not all the walls are straight and corners square! Rooms are comfortable with direct access to secure private gardens.
Apart from the busy farm and beautiful scenery we have three accommodation units, Ida`s Cottage (2 Pax), Mahogany Cottage (2 Pax) and the Guesthouse which contains Beaumont Master (2 Pax) and Choctaw Room (2 Pax). All are fully furnished and equipped to make your stay as pleasant as possible. You can book out the entire Guesthouse which can accommodate (4 Pax) and we allow for an extra (2 Pax) on a sleeper couch.
With over 300 bird species in the area and a few wild animals scattered about walks and bike rides are sure to be very enjoyable. There are a number of other activities that guests are able to indulge in, whilst staying over.
