The space
The name "Heilfontein" means "Holy Fountain" and it is so named as it is reputed to have never run dry.

You are welcome to walk and cycle through the Protea plantations and the natural Fynbos, swim in the dams or river pools and fish for Trout on a "catch and release" basis. At the Lodge, there are inside and outside braai facilities.

Other things to note
As there are livestock on the farm, we ask that you close gates behind you.

Caledon, Western Cape, South Africa
