Welcome to Knopberg!

Hugged in the folds of the Vredefort Dome Bergland, the tranquil little guestfarm Knopberg provides comfortable self-catering accommodation and entertains visitors with unique views of the Vaal River valley, beautiful sun-sets, a variety of indigenous trees and a range of local birds. Knopberg borders the Vaal River in close proximity of the historical Venterskroon Town where gold was mined towards the end of the 19th century.

The main building, The Sheppards Tree Family Unit, comprises four double rooms each with doors opening to the outside, a well-equipped kitchen and a spacious living room with a fireplace and large windows for an atmosphere of being-outside. Renovated authentically, the original farmhouse, the Lemon Blossem Farmhouse, has three double rooms, two bathrooms, a dollhouse-like kitchen which connects with a small living room extending onto a shady berg-view stoep. Honeybush is a self-contained cosy cottage for two with a romantic bathroom and open-air shower. The original farm dam now serves as swimming pool and each unit has a comfortable separate braai area.

A two kilometre Tree Trail with its clearly identified indigenous trees provides variable scenery as well as exercise. A unique feature of Knopberg is a Trail with secluded areas among whispering indigenous trees where visitors can withdraw for meditation or prayer.
