Heartfelt connections in front of a roaring fire
Elemental yoga connecting breath and body
Delicious organic meals to keep you nourished throughout
Learn about the medicinal properties of the wild plants grown on the farm
Create your own medicines, teas and smudge sticks
Sharing, connecting, breathing, dancing, laughing and heart opening

Venue Highlights

The Wild Love is run from the gorgeous Guinevere Guest Farm, which is located a 90-minute drive from the tourist hot spot of Cape Town. The farmhouse is situated on 95ha of private land nestled amongst indigenous fynbos and lends itself to the ideal space in which one can immerse in nature and the tranquility of the abundant fynbos and bird life.
There is a large swimming lake for those hot summer months, a pool on the upper level and a river in springtime.
A short walk away is a gorgeous waterfall and rock pools to cool off in or watch the sunrise over the valley.
The farm is also a rescue sanctuary with cows, pigs, chickens, and donkeys- all rescued and given a second chance to live out their days with us.
80% of the farm is pure and untouched fynbos, which is the most diverse and richest plant biome in the world.
There is a sweat lodge and yoga studio on the property
Enjoy star gazing from our wood-fired hot tub
The accommodation is all under one roof, keeping the retreats cozy and intimate

Accommodations

The accommodation is surrounded, almost cradled, by majestic mountains in the Tulbagh valley on a nature-full farm. Whether you stay in a private room with en-suite bathroom and a balcony or whether you share a room with one or two others, there are many places to relax and reflect in this large retreat farmhouse that you have all to yourself for the duration of the week.

All rooms are beautiful, large, and comfortable with en-suite bathrooms, seating areas, and balconies overlooking the Tulbagh Basin. The private rooms are equipped with seating areas and en-suite bathrooms with private balconies. Meanwhile, shared rooms are facilitated with double beds and en-suite bathrooms.

There is a fan in each room. We do not have aircon as we are striving for a greener and more sustainable presence on this earth.

there is free wifi available on the ground level of the house.

Menu/Cuisine

Nourishment is an important part of the wild love experience and integrates not only in vibrant diet but through sincere human connection.
We serve organic meals where possible created with love and packed with superfoods, providing the nutrients needed to energize and revitalize from the inside out.
Expect smoothies, buddha bowls, salads, raw juices, and wholesome ayurvedic meals, all cooked with love.

Directions

The nearest airport is Cape Town International. The easiest way to get to the venue is by car. Renting a car from the airport is simple and quite cheap too.
We can organize a shuttle to and from the airport. The cost is approximately R1200 each way- so sharing the shuttle with a few people is the most cost-effective.
To get to the venue from the airport will take around 90 minutes.

Why Retreat?

We asked people why they go on retreat, here's what they said:

To find peace and renewal while going through a huge change in my life. Empty nest and the end of a 27 year marriage all at once. Susan
