Doornbosch - Overberg, Western Cape, South Africa

If you EVER want to get away, be in complete silence. have no signal, but still have wifi, then Doornbosch is definitely the place for you. 

This past weekend the family and I had a little one night getaway (thanks mom!).
We went away from the city and found ourselves tucked faraway, in between the beautiful mountains of the peaceful Overberg, on the breathtaking farm called Doornbosch. 

 Doornbosch is only a 2 hour drive from Cape Town. It sits between Gansbaai and Napier and you'd be happy to know that Pearly Beach is only a few minutes away. The drive is beautiful, so while you there make sure to stop off at a few places. It's a central destination to, the always debated, Southern most tip of Africa and just like the website describes, the life in Doornbosch is "relaxed, quiet and unspoiled". 

The guesthouse has three massive bedrooms all with en-suite, twin sink bathrooms. There is a large open plan living area consisting of the kitchen, lounge, fireplace and a beautiful dining area. The three double doors take you out on a very big veranda. Just take a look.

Here are a few things you can do while you stay at Doornbosch:
Just remember to take binoculars and 
mosquito repellent. Also, watch out for ticks.

  • Game drives (Springbok, Zebra, Fallow Deer, Eland) 
  • Bird watching
  • Walking, hiking and/or mountain biking 
  • Horse riding
  • Swim
  • Star Gazing
  • Braai 
  • Relax

Hopefully I have now sold the idea of Doornbosch and that you have already had a look at their website. Take some well earned time off work, spoil yourself and go breath in the fresh, fresh air!  I'll even make things easy for you... here are the contact details of a lady Heidi, who runs the guest-farm. Don't waste anymore time, take some time out!
