ABOUT

The Orchid Cottage was designed to make your visit a unique, comfortable and memorable experience. Our rooms are spacious, our rates are competitive and the service is unparalleled.

 

The cottage is tucked away in a corner of the garden at Afri Orchids and is literally a short stroll away from our vast collection of orchids.  There are an abundance of orchids in the trees around the house too, allowing you to sip something cold on the deck, whilst staring at a few beauties in flower.  

Our team knows that travelling can be exhausting, and will do their best to make your stay easy and satisfying. Take a look at our site to find out more about our rooms, food and amenities, and get in touch if there’s anything else we can help you with. We look forward to welcoming you soon!

THINGS TO DO

Greenhouse Tour

 

The best part about cottage is its proximity to the Afri Orchids collection.  The greenhouses are full of interesting and unique orchid species from around the world.   We'll gladly take you on a tour of the collection.  Just pop us an email to request this service, as we are not always available.

Sudwala Caves

 

We are just under twenty minutes away from the Sudwala Caves.  This is a great place for a day trip.

Kruger National Park

 

This is the ideal stop-over on your way to or from Kruger.  And we can ship your orchid purchases to you if you are running low on space in your vehicle.

Leisure Activities

 

There are plenty of dirt roads around the farm should you feel the need to hike, jog or cycle.

Birds Watching

 

The farm has an enviable bird list and a short drive takes you to the higher elevations of Kaapschehoop.  We added a guide book to the house, just in case.

Games and fun

 

There are a number of popular board games in the cottage to keep the young and the young-at-heart busy.
