Self Catering

Oudrif is situated on the banks of the Doring River in the Cederberg Mountains, 3 and a half hours drive North-West of Cape Town and an hour from the nearest town, Clanwilliam. Oudrif provides comfortable accommodation (including meals) for up to 10 people who relish peace, quiet and being close to nature. Much of the area is still in a pristine state and unique plants, animals, fish and insect species abound. In spring the whole area comes alive with the biggest outdoor flower display in the world; in winter the river rises and provides exciting white water action for enthusiasts; in summer fly-fishermen can fish for rare and endangered species (by way of catch and release). The river also provides ample opportunity for paddling, swimming and sun bathing on its secluded beaches. Oudrif's history can be traced from the artefacts left by Stone Age man to Rock Art by the Bushmen, and from stories of the Boer War up to recent organic farming and rafting activities. Our 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.
