About Us

Zoutspruit is a owner operated Guest House
on a working farm in the Northern Free State.

Francois is your host and have been farming with Dairy and
Game for the past 30 years and started Zoutspruit Guesthouse in 1999.
Mealies (corn/maize) Sunflowers, Potatoes and Pumpkins are produced
on the farm, also Bonsmara beef cattle. Since the start of the guest house
it’s popularity improves every year. The farm was bought in 1980 and
since then many changes have taken place. Farming and hosting the
guesthouse are our passions and we enjoy to interact with visitors
and enjoying the scrumptious 3 course home dinner with the guests.

Dinner is always a family affair. We have 15 families working on the farm.
The Ladies working in the guest house are the essence of the guesthouse
and they enjoy the visitors. They ensure crisp clean, comfortable rooms
for you to have a rest. We are looking forward to welcome you on Zoutspruit.
Please feel free to discuss any diet preferences or other enquiries with us.
We operate on the saying ” ‘n Boer maak ‘n plan!”



At Zoutspruit Bed & Breakfast, we offer a wide range of activities to keep our guests coming back.


The Zoutspruit game camp may be viewed either by vehicle or by hiking through the camp. Viewing the game camp by vehicle will only introduce visitors to the most prominent species. Hiking though offers a unique eco-tourism experience.
