La Plume is a 1902 Victorian homestead on a working ostrich, alfalfa and vine farm just outside Oudtshoorn. Set in the tranquilOlifantsrivier Valley it demands spectacular views of the Swartberg Mountains.


The suites and the luxury rooms at La Plume are spacious and a cool rampart against the hot Karoo sun.

Rich fabrics blend with the aromas of polished wood and tanned leather. Selected pictures bridge the chivalric charm of carefully selected antique furniture lovingly collected over many years and modern amenities.

Each room has a unique signature of colour, aroma and furnishing. A family cottage with 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, 2 lounges and a kitchenette is available for groups or a family wanting space as well as privacy. The cottage can also be turned into two separate luxury suites.


La Plume offers guest a sparkling pool set among lush lawns, with never-ending views. Delectable cuisine in peaceful rural surroundings, designed to satisfy all the senses. Indulge yourself in the romantic ambiance of candlelit dinners with traditional ostrich fillet and other home cooked delicacies.


La Plume is a working ostrich, vine, cattle and alfalfa farm. Experience a farm tour with owner Bartel (by prior arrangement), to observe the activities of a commercial farm in the Klein Karoo.

Mountain biking, cycling, bird watching and hiking can be enjoyed among the fynbos and rare succulent plants. Take a balloon flight and visit the world’s only meerkat (mongoose – cat-like predators) conservation program. From time to time, La Plume offers stargazing with a Southern sky expert.

The location puts guests within easy access to natural hot springs, nature and wildlife reserves, the Cango Caves, ostrich show farms and wine estates.
