We support the following
  projects in our area:



Location: Oudrif is situated on the banks of the unspoilt Doring River in the foothills of the Cederberg, a transition zone between Cederberg, Namaqualand, Succulent Karoo and Mountain Renosterveld regions. This location means that we are blessed with fauna, and especially flora, unique to the area, thus spring brings a diverse and brilliant display of wild flowers

We are blessed with an abundance of natural and historical attractions. This area is one of the largest open air art galleries anywhere, the san rock art dates up to approximately 5000 years old, there are also stone artefacts going back 100 000 years and fossils going back 400 million years. Local legend has it that when God was making the earth he had all the flower seed in one pocket and accidentally let it fall out over Namaqualand. During spring we play host to the largest wild flower display in the world. No light pollution and clear air also makes Oudrif ideal for stargazing and simply relaxing in utter peace.


Accommodation: The accommodation caters for 2 persons sharing in 5 unique, straw bale cottages perched on a rocky shelf overlooking the river. Meals and drinks are served in our boma or dining room.



The rates for 2016 to End February 2017 will be R 1000 per person per night.
