A South African country birding and hiking experience
Glen Avon Farm, near the historic little town of Somerset East in South Africa's malaria-free Eastern Cape, lies at the foot of Boschberg Mountain and provides a perfect environment for a farm holiday.
It also offers gracious accommodation in its historic cottages. For more about our accommodation and tariffs please follow the links above. Being close to both Somerset East and the R63 it is very accessible.
Stately mountains, lush valleys, forests, rock formations, streams and delightful vistas make an exhilarating environment for a farm holiday for those who love nature and what it has to offer. Birding is excellent and hiking opportunities of all degrees abound.
Lovers of flora and fauna will find plenty to interest them while those who like animals will enjoy our farm life. Browse our site and get a feel for what we are about.
If what you need is simply to get away from city pressures, to relax and maybe take a plunge in our pool or play a little tennis, Glen Avon will provide a restorative farm holiday.
