Helene the manageress was a fantastic hostess and provided us with a fantastic braai spread at a very reasonable cost too. Our timing was great as we were able to join the group bushman painting 4x4 trip, a wonderful experience!

EL YOLO OnE is a privately owned three star guest farm with self catering accommodation, situated on the border of the Western Cape and the Eastern Cape. Here you can relax, experience nature, farm life, 4x4 tracks and much more. The nearest old fashioned town is Klaarstroom and it is very close to Meiringspoort, one of the eight Unesco World Heritage sites in South Africa. The guest farm is also within a few kilometre from the small town of Willowmore and the fascinating Baviaanskloof. Even Prince Albert, De Rust and Oudtshoorn can be visited on day trips from EL YOLO OnE guest farm.

Annual events in the area make the guest farm a popular accommodation option and bookings are essential. Some local events and attractions include the KKNK or Klein Karoo Nasionale Kunstefees in Oudtshoorn (88 km) in April, snow during July and August, the Meiringspoort Marathon during October, and escaping the city life during Decembers and any other time of the year.
