Off-the-grid sustainable living near De Rust village. Numbi Valley farm is a wonderful example of eco-friendly living. We have abundant organic gardens, a self built cob house, spring fed fresh water plunge pool and an Olive groove all in a very beautiful valley of the Klein Karoo. There are scenic walks and cycling routes from the farm. Numbi valley is the ideal base from which to explore the Cango caves and the circular Swartberg pass route through to Prince Albert and Meiringspoort.

What an incredibly special space out in the middle of the valley, you cannot help but take a deep breath and take in your surroundings with gratitude. Kathryn & Ross are such special easy going centred people who were a pleasure to bake pizzas and interact with ( a must in their oven)! We had our two girls with us who just relished in the stunning pool, outdoor bathing and fireplace with us. Memorable weekend in all ways for sure : ))

Numbi valley is truly a magical place. Words can't begin to describe the beautiful environment that Kath and Ross have created. I'm left speechless. Not only are they fantastic hosts, ready to meet you're every need but they share their little piece of heaven with the rest of us. I'm inspired by what they have created and hope to live a more sustainable life, through example they teach us how to love this wonderful world we live in.

Kath and Ross were awesome hosts. We had a warm welcome and Kath gave us useful tips on exploring the De Rust and Oudtshoorn area. The apartment lies above an olive garden. It is rustic, very clean and has everything you need to feel comfortable in nature. Complete with a small pool overlooking the quiet valley you will quickly feel at rest. We loved the place so much that we extended and extra night and we will definitely be back!

What a beautiful place! We only stayed for a quick night on our journey and wish we could've stayed longer. Kath & Ross were great hosts (and answered all our questions about how it's like living on such a pretty farm!). Would highly recommend. If only it was summer so we could enjoy that amazing pool! There's always next time!

It's my second stay at Numbi & it will certainly not be my last! Not only are Kathryn & Ross fantastic hosts, but what they have created is incredibly special & unique & I love that they are so willing to share their piece of heaven with us all! Glad we got to fit in a massage this time - Kim & I both loved it! See you soon...

Possibly the most romantic getaway in the world. Located in the pristine Karoo is this hideaway that offers serenity, privacy and the opportunity to get back to nature like nothing else you'll find in South Africa. Kathryn was a great host and made our time here one we'll never forget. We will most definitely be back.

We have been on this beautiful farm for 12 years, growing and supplying organic fruit, veggies and our own extra virgin cold pressed Olive oil to the town of De Rust. Prior to this we managed remote lodges in the beautiful Okavango Delta, Botswana. We have also spent two years during this time away from our farm managing a lodge in the Serengeti, Tanzania where 1.5 million Wildebeest still follow their ancient migration route. We are passionate about nature and believe in taking great care of the land hence the practise of Permaculture on our farm. Numbi Valley is a magical place. We would love to share our knowledge on sustainable living and look forward to meeting you.
