Melk Houte Bosch is an active working farm situated 34km outside of Swellendam towards Malgas/Infanta with sheep, cattle and fields of oats, wheat, barley and canola. A herd of Springboks and zebras graze peacefully around here. We offer hiking routes for the bird watchers, rowing/fishing on the Breede River and cycling routes for the adventurous.
We offer a peaceful, relaxing stay in the Renosterveld at our self-catering accommodation in the Old Dairy – beautifully renovated to accommodate between two and six people.
And we have rustic accommodation at our Research & Visitor Centre, with single beds and bunks beds, an open-plan fully-equipped kitchen, and two bathrooms. And don’t forget our braai area, for a beautiful evening in the Renosterveld.
Tides is an oasis in the dry wheatlands of the Overberg, an “off the beaten track” destination for those who enjoy something different.
Next door to Malgas, Tides Lodge offers something for everyone and the activities available range from relaxing in a deck chair and enjoying the peaceful tranquility of the Breede River to traversing the challenging 4X4 trails of the Overberg.
