Enter Bakenskraal Ostrich Palace

A Royal Time Awaits…

A short and scenic 5-minute drive from the city centre of Oudtshoorn, nestled in the fertile Elephants River valley, lies Bakenskraal Ostrich Palace. The farm was surveyed and proclaimed in 1843 and has been meticulously restored and lovingly refurbished by the Keller Family. We offer discerning guests a taste of luxurious country living in the heart of the magical Klein Karoo. 

The Keller Family Welcomes You!
