Rietpan Guest Farm and Hiking Trails
Rietpan has a long history. Originally built by Commandant Mostert in 1913 when it was certainly one of the grandest farmhouses in Carolina district. Jan Smuts was a frequent visitor and the spaciousness and awe of this homely farmhouse is similar to what it must have been like almost 100 years ago. The farm consists of 2500ha of mainly grassland on which 6000 Marino sheep spend their seemingly contented life consuming their natural pastureland. There are also 3 large pans that play host to numerous species of water birds.
Rietpan has something to offer for everyone and even in winter times, the old iron stove in the kitchen offers its cloak of warmth to the guests. Walk the hiking paths, ride the well schooled horses or just relax with a book in the comfort of the old farmhouse.
