This farm is run on a self-sustaining and eco-friendly basis, where solar power is being used to generate electricity, with a diesel generator for emergency back up. A flock of sheep and goats are kept for meat and a few cows for fresh milk and cheese making. Natural clean drinking water is provided from the farm’s own boreholes.
The farm terrain is ideal for losing yourself in its serenity, be it through hiking or 4×4 self drives. Beestekuil also borders the Brulberg Private Game Ranch and guided visits there can be arranged.
The farmhouse accommodation facilities consist of one en-suite room with its own private entrance and one guestroom within the homestead, which accommodates two to four people sharing. Basic accommodation for backpackers is also on offer, consisting of two rooms with five beds, with an outside lapa.
A must see when visiting Beestekuil are the murals in the farmhouse, done by Italian prisoners of war during World War Two, while being employed as farm workers on Beestekuil. A must taste is Corrie’s Dutch style homemade cheese.
