About Yamkela Guest House

Type: Guest House
Check-in: 2:00 PM

Oudtshoorn has been called South Africa's tourism capital and with good reason. The town has been blessed with the greatest variety of tourist attractions imaginable. Guests can enjoy peculiar ostrich, the breathtaking Cango Caves, majestic mountain ranges, the unspoilt natural environment, culinary adventure and wine tasting.

The guesthouse has 10 rooms that are comfortably appointed with en-suite bathrooms, air-conditioning, televisions, telephones, equipped bar fridges, hairdryers, tea and coffee trays and safes. Each room gives you the possibility to work or relax in tranquility and every attempt has been made to assure high standards.

You can relax in the tranquil landscaped garden with a swimming pool and a 24-hour reception desk will provide you with all the information needed. Car rental, reservation of restaurants or whatever the need may be, we will be happy to assist you.

Yamkela is Xhosa for “welcome” and that is exactly how you will feel when entering our guest house. Yamkela is situated in the heart of the Klein Karoo close to Oudtshoorn city centre. Enjoy a scenic drive over Swartberg Pass to the hamlet of Prince Albert, returning via Meiring's Poort which is well-known for its interesting geological formations. Oudtshoorn is becoming an all-year-round destination and Yamkela Guest House is the right location to start from.

We had a very well equipped room with all that one could wish for. Our welcoming host provided us with an outstanding breakfast, and we would not hesitate to stay at Yamkela again.
