About Desert Dew Guesthouse

This farm is set in a traditional Karoo environment with historical structures from the previous century dating back 150 years ago still visible in several locations. Several Khoi San Bushmen drawings can be found.

Modderfontein farm is the highest point between Cape Town and Johannesburg, 1300 m above sea level. The Karoo is a semi-desert area, however Modderfontein farm has six natural springs on the farm and the water is of very good drinking quality. Our home is a place of true peace and tranquility. We invite you to escape the crowds of city life and come relax with us. We offer three comfortably furnished bedrooms, two of which have en-suite bathrooms and the other bathroom is opposite the third bedroom. We offer laundry and cleaning services to all guests. There are tea and coffee-making facilities in all rooms with homemade rusks. There is a self-catering fully equipped kitchen available for all guests.

The guest house is on a working farm with sheep, angora and cattle. There are various activities to fill up your days such as hiking, 4x4-ing, mountain biking, quad biking, donkey cart riding and birdwatching.

                                  Having 3 childeen under 5yo is a challenge when it comes to anything, let alone staying over somewhere new. The staff were so welcoming and lended a hand when mine were not enough. Thanx guys. The food is of a high quality and you can see and taste the extra mile they go to male it a cousine .

                                  On the first visit we were welcomed as strangers, and we enjoyed getting to meet Henk and Erika. 9 days later on our return trip we were received as though we were family.We will be back

                                  The rusks, iced water and cold drinks in the fridge were very welcoming. 5 stars overall, aircon in the chalets would be great!

                                  Erica is a delightful host. We appreciated her hospitality. The chalet was comfortable and the showers hot. Definitely will return.
