Waboomsrust | Venue | Campsite | Butchery | 4×4
Waboomsrust is nestled between the Du Toitskloof and Witteberg mountains in a wine-producing region of the Western Cape. The sunny summer months boast unforgettable sunrise and sunsets. The surrounding peaks are often covered with snow in winter months with breathtaking waterfalls.
Waboomsrust is home to a dazzling display of Proteas, fynbos, bird life, game and antelope. Campers can enjoy scenic walks, cycling and relax in the majestic mountains. When booking the campsite, your booking is for exclusive use.
There is an intimate venue on the farm next to the campsite that can be booked for special celebrations. We warmly welcome celebrations, from birthdays to lazy luncheons, workshops, work events and editorial shoots - intimate and informal. It is very popular for weddings, where you will be framed by a backdrop of magnificent mountain views.
At less than 80km from Cape Town city, Waboomsrust offers 4x4 enthusiasts a quick escape from the city. Views over the Molenaarsriver are spectacular from the high vantage points at the top of the trail. Rated a 3 to 5 in difficulty (depending on weather conditions), the trail’s drivability will change dramatically after rain, thanks to its slippery clay surface. The trail starts at the venue and you make your way up to the top where you'll make a U-turn back down. Total driving time is around two hours – provided you don’t get stuck, and depending on your skill level and mechanical sympathy. You’ll need at least 300mm of underbody ground clearance, along with low-range (and, ideally, a rear diff-lock) to complete each obstacle.
We have a butchery on the farm. Freddie started his butchery in 2002 and has been an instrumental aspect of its success. He experimented with charcuterie (cold smoked products) using game. He also perfected the traditional recipes and has a reputation for his mouthwatering boerewors.
