Farm 215 Nature Retreat & Fynbos Reserve

Description

Farm 215 -nature retreat & fynbos reserve is a sustainable destination in the Uilkraal Valley between Stanford and Cape Agulhas in the Western Cape’s unspoiled Southern Overberg, a 2 hour drive from Cape Town International Airport.

Far removed from the daily grind of life, farm 215 is a private, intimate and secluded retreat where you can enjoy spacious accommodation, tranquillity, an overpowering sense of space and the unique nature of the Cape Floral Kingdom, the richest floral biome in the world. The reserve is a Protected Area and a sanctuary for hundreds of rare, endemic and common fynbos plants of the threatened Cape Floral Kingdom, known for its weird and wonderful shapes and flowers.

Farm 215 has been set up and is managed as a "with two feet on the ground" sustainable operation. We place the integrity of the natural ecosystem around us in the first place and aim to keep the footprint of both ourselves and our guests as low as possible.

The African Horse Company has its base station on farm 215, which is also the first reforestation site of the Trees for Tourism program of the South African Forest Trust and home to the SEC-Skills Exchange Co-operative, focusing on early childhood development programs.
