Numbi Valley is a wonderful example of off-grid, sustainable living. There is only one guest cottage on the farm and Kath and Ross welcome you to share their uniquely created space. There are abundant organic gardens, a private spring fed fresh water plunge pool, an olive grove all in a very beautiful, peaceful and isolated valley of the Klein Karoo. There are scenic walks, cycling routes, fresh produce, yoga , excellent massage, delicious pizza and uncapped wi-fi, all only 12km from De Rust

The space
Numbi valley offers only one unique Self Catering Cottage in a secluded valley near the Little Karoo town of De Rust. We absolutely love where we live, and love sharing our space with travelers and those interested in nature and sustainable living
We practice permaculture on the farm and live entirely off-the-grid. The clean and cozy cottage is comfortable, with a queen size bed in the main bedroom, two single beds in the second room and a bathroom with shower, basin and toilet. There is an indoor fireplace for cold winter nights, a fully equipped kitchen with a solar 150l fridge/freezer and gas oven/stove, open plan lounge and dining room and 24 hour electricity from the solar panels. Free un-capped wi-fi is available in the cottage.
The cottage is ideally suited to a couple, a couple with their 2/3 children, or 2 couples travelling together or 2/3 single travelers.
We keep the cottage very clean, but if it is a tiled sterile environment you are after than this is not for you.

We have a wonderfully abundant 17 year old organic garden and orchard, chickens, and an organic Olive Orchard from which we produce oil. During your stay you can try out the farm produce by ordering a basket of freshly picked veggies and fruit to prepare meals with, maybe some fresh eggs, raw honey or Olive Oil. We appreciate the support of our farms produce.
We live in a self built Cob Cottage on the farm and are happy to share our knowledge of alternative building techniques with you. Our natural pool is free of chlorine but rather the water is filtered by plants and changed with a change over of guests. There is a pizza oven and outside barbeque area for you to enjoy, grids are available to use.
Yoga classes are offered in the beautiful cob studio on the farm, relaxing and therapeutic trigger point massages and an interesting garden cob fire-bath on the farm.
Please enquire about these directly when booking your stay.
Looking forward to meeting you.

We love the dramatic mountains and starry nights of the karoo. We feel fortunate to live in a safe area where there is still wildlife on and around the farm, we often hear Jackal calling at night, or see Kudu wandering in the hills above the farm cottage.
There are many interesting things to do from the farm like visits to the Cango caves, drive the dramatic Swartberg Pass to the little town of Prince Albert for delicious gourmet lunches or go for a swim in the Meiringspoort waterfall. There are some great Mountain Bike rides from the farm and walks in the hills. But our favorite thing to do is simply to relax on the farm, enjoy the views from the pool and cottage, maybe listen to music and soak up the country side and peace of the Valley.
Kath is a qualified Yoga teacher and massuese, please enquire if you are interested in any of these. Our neighbours offer great horse riding, and excellent star evenings.

We have been on this beautiful farm for 17 years, growing and supplying organic fruit, veggies and our own extra virgin cold pressed Olive oil to the town of De Rust. Prior to this we managed remote lodges in the beautiful Okavango Delta, Botswana. We have also spent two years during this time away from our farm managing a lodge in the Serengeti, Tanzania where 1.5 million Wildebeest still follow their ancient migration route. We are passionate about nature and believe in taking great care of the land hence the practise of Permaculture on our farm. Numbi Valley is a magical place. We would love to share our knowledge on sustainable living and look forward to meeting you. Motto " live simply so others may simply live"
