About Us

Join Our Families Remote South African Adventure…

We are a modern urban family of 4 who every weekend left the big smoke and headed to the countryside.  For a decade we tried to convince ourselves that this was great, yet something was missing….

Inspired by a Netflix documentary on Alaska, we set out to find our South African equivalent. A place to live, work and love where we could be free, have a simpler life and become more self reliant.

Join us as we build, garden, restore, farm, adventure and invite you to follow us, or even better still come and stay in one of our unique cottages.
