Southern Yurt

Southern Yurt, a new and exciting addition to Porcupine Hills, offers a memorable glamping experience in the beauty and privacy of the Diepklowe Private Nature Reserve.

Yurts have become stylish weekend and holiday homes in the UK, Europe and many other parts of the world. Now, in collaboration with Southern Yurts, a Cape Town-based company, you can explore this unique experience to the Overberg!

Nestled on a sloping hill that overlooks the raw beauty of the nature conservancy, the North-facing yurt is positioned for the perfect sunrise and sunset. Walk out onto a landing that has been built out of a 90-year old stone wall, and into your private kitchen with outdoor fireplace. A couple of meters away you can enjoy the comfort of a hot shower in our beautiful and enclosed bathroom unit. Nothing about this accommodation is ordinary - if you're looking for an original and comfortable stay in breathtaking nature, the yurt will provide it all.

The yurt is located next to our Secret Forest, a gentle riverine area scattered with fruit trees that are over a hundred years old. Feel free to have a swing under the ancient Oak, or a stroll through our budding fruit orchard adjacent to the river. Pick a fruit from a historic fig tree over 6 m tall, or a pomegranate for your morning fruit salad.

When you want to be near the water, enjoy a light 5 minute walk to our dam: swim it's length, or enjoy a sundowner at the dam centre on a moving raft. On summer days, the cool shade from the weeping willows can be life-saving. For guests that would like to explore more of the Conservancy, there are a number of hikes around the farm that give you spectacular views and expose an incredible array of flora unique to the region.
