Come experience the tranquility of the countryside!

Our well equipped self-catering farmhouse and private campsite is ideal for traveling persons and groups, or anyone that seeks to escape the noise of the city.

We are a day's journey (600km) from Cape Town and thus a good stopover for those heading to either Namibia, Kgalagadi or Botswana. Oom Benna's is situated less than 1 km from the R27 between Kenhardt and Brandvlei and the latter is only 15km south.(See Contact Us for a map).

The unit is fully equipped for self catering purposes with a gas stove, gas geyser, gas fridge, electric lights (solar power) and braai facilities. Bedding is provided for 12 people.

For campers, there are shower facilities, a small sitting room and scullery for dishes. A second option for the campers, is a separate room with 3 bunkbeds. (No bedding suplied for this option.)


  • Can I bring my whole family?

    Anytime! Oom Benna's can accommodate up to 12 people in the farmhouse. It has three bedrooms, two showers (en suite) and a third bathroom if needed. There are also two single beds in the living room and a bunk bed. One of the rooms also contains a bunk bed.
  • What about swimsuits?

    Bring your swimsuit along. We have a concrete reservoir which we clean in the summer for cooling down.
  • How far is Pick & Pay?

    Brandvlei is the nearest town (15 km). There you'll find a few shops including a bakery, butchery, a cafe with 24 hour fuel, an Agricultural Cooperative, a liquor store and many others. "Die Windpomp" Restaurant serves delicious food. Note that braai packs and wood are available at Oom Benna's on request at an extra fee.
  • What is there to do?

    Mountain biking, picnicking in the dry riverbeds of the Sak River, stargazing, hiking and birding. Look out for the Red Lark, which is endemic to the area and Sclater's Lark. (See our birdguide).
    "Verneukpan" is about 80km from here.
