About Malachite Yurt Camp
Malachite Yurt Camp in Botrivier is situated on Porcupine Hills Guest Farm, which is home to both a small olive growing operation and a nature conservancy. The farm itself has a wide range of activities and there are even more in the local region.
Malachite is part of a Yurt camp that has been split into two neighbouring sites that are screened from one another offering visual privacy.
Malachite sleeps up to four guests in two small Camping Yurts, similar in size to a standard tent, each equipped with a double bed, side lights, linen and towels. Adjacent to the Yurts are two separate structures for your private use - one is a large bathroom with a hot shower and the other is a comfortable kitchen and lounge space.
The kitchen area has a daybed which can be made up with linen to accommodate an additional two guests, and extra camping for up to four campers can be arranged.
The Yurt Camp is equipped with solar power and charging facilities, gas stove tops for cooking, fridges, crockery, cutlery, utensils, braai facilities, firewood, firelighters, soaps, shampoos, salt, pepper, and the farm's homegrown organic olive oil. You need only bring your food and drinks.
Malachite Yurt Camp is next to Kestrel Yurt Camp and can be booked together for larger groups.
The Yurt Camp is situated under the farm's distinguishable ridge, with a gentle riverine area to the one side of the camp. Enjoy a walk through the farm's olive groves, only two minutes from the camp, or a longer hike along the beautiful Verraux Trail (1,5 - 2 hours long). For guests that would like to explore more of the conservancy, there are a number of hikes or trail running routes around the farm that give you spectacular views and expose an incredible array of flora unique to the region. Mountain bikers can cycle on nearby farms, with the most notable trails being on Paul Cluver and Oak Valley (30 mins from Southern Yurts). When you want to be near the water, enjoy a light 5 minute walk to our dam - swim its length, or enjoy a sundowner under the cool shade of the weeping willow. For bird lovers, the farm is a small oasis.
