We only stayed for one night, but every time we remember our trip through South Africa, we really consider Elandsberg as one of our highlights. The tour with Chris around the tea farm, the jog to the caves, Annette`s delicious Bobotie and the breakfast with our lovely hosts - we really enjoyed it !

Elandsberg isn't just a relaxing, "feel at home" rooibos farm to visit; it's a way to experience genuine hospitality, thanks to Annette & Chris. The scenery is lovely. It is a good place for birding and nicely situated to make a short trek to other birding sites...Annette & Chris were very well informed. Much thanks from your Canadian group.

Dear Annette and Chris, back in Europe we first had a cup of your lekker rooibos and kept dreaming of our wonderful stay at Elandsberg last week. Now we understand why rooibos doesn't feel home anywhere else: To be in your company is such a pleasure that is hard to leave. We felt very home will return :-)

Dear Chris and Annette, Once again, thank you for your warm and kind hospitality. For the past 4 years we have been visiting your chalets and every time it just gets better. Our wheelchair needs are more than catered for. Next time we'll bring the crayfish. Thank you, God bless and see you soon!

Dear Annette & Chris! It took us only a very short moment to change our plans and stay for a few days at Elandsberg Actually we only wanted to see how your farm has developed after 10 years where we visited you last time ;-) We had a really silent and relaxing days and nights in the middle of nowhere. Thanx for all your knowledge and the delicious Mangos :-) Angelika & Bernd

Thank you Chris for the highly informative and interesting tour of the rooibos tea farm. You were able to hold all of our attention all of the time with your wonderful sense of humour and your obvious love for what you do.

Now that we're back safely in the UK and Zoe has returned to her Cape Town studies, we wanted to say a big thank you to you both for a wonderful stay at Elandsberg. We're so glad that someone else's muddle over dates meant we could stay for four nights and become reacquainted with you properly after that tantalising, but all too brief encounter back in 2008. It was the perfect place for us all to unwind after a long tiring flight from the UK, and the flowers were heavenly. We also thoroughly enjoyed Chris' tour round the estate, and look forward to reading the book when he writes it! Thanks too, Annette (from Jeany) for the wrap. It proved perfect for some chilly nights during our S African adventure. We hope the rest of your busy season has been a success, and look forward to seeing you again one day. Love and best wishes to you both, Ian, Jeany and Zoe PS Your rooibos products have made great presents for appreciative frends and family

Annette en Chris, ons besoek by julle was so aangenaam met aangename verrassings dat ons amper nie vertrek het nie. Die 4x4 rit en die vertellings omtrent die verbouing, verwerking en bemarking van die Rooibos tee was 'n openbaring! Die natuur en plantegroei in die omgewing was so pragtig, ons het ons daarin verlustig, veral in die verskeidenheid veldblomsoorte wat so pragtig was. Voorspoed met julle onderneming.

Dear Annette and Chris, it's already a while since we left your beautiful home but the memories are still in our mind. We had such a great time in your place and we enjoyed everything (the nice conversations with you, the great food, the very interesting excursions with Chris, the nice Jeep tour and of course the nice Rooibos tea.) I hope you are doing well and hope to see you soon again.

A 4x4 was a bonus when driving to this wonderful guest house on a Rooibos Farm. Chris and Annette made us feel like family. Our room was simple but spacious, with great views. The evening meal, taken with our hosts, was really quite special. Breakfast on the veranda with the view and spectacular garden, is a never-to-be-forgotten experience! Our trip around the Rooibos Farm with Chris, coupled with his wealth of knowledge of the local flora, will always be remembered. We'll be back!

liebe Annette, lieber Chris, wir haben bei Euch die Rooibos-Tour mitgemacht. Es war so interessant und informativ. Chris hat uns so viel erklärt und wir sind dankbar,was wir alles über den Tee und den Finbos erfahren haben. Danke und frohe Weihnachten wünschen Euch Elisabeth und Michael PS: was kommt alles in den leckeren Rooibos-Glühwein?

Liebe Annette, lieber Chris, mit ein paar Wochen Verzögerung möchten wir uns nochmals herzlich bedanken für eine tolle Zeit auf Eurer Farm. Wie gern wären wir noch länger geblieben. Eigentlich jeden Tag denken wir seitdem bei einer Tasse Rooibos Tee an Euch zurück. Fantastisches Essen und einmaliges Frühstück (Danke Annette) , hochinteressante Einischten in die Rooibosfabrikation und ein Farmdrive (Danke Chris) waren es mehr als wert, ein paar Meter Pad zu fahren ;-) Fühlt Euch herzlich gegroet.

We had a short stay in Elandsberg Groenkool Rooibos Estate but we enjoyed it. It is a place to come back! Owners Chris and Annette were very friendly. Our evening in the Uilkombuis under the rock was a great experience.

Dear Chris and Annette, thank you very much for your hospitality at Elandsberg this weekend. We thoroughly enjoyed the peace and quiet and could relax together after such busy weeks in town. The walk was a lovely experience too. We were sad to leave Elandsberg but will be back. Thank you again. Robyn and Johan

The hospitality experienced at Elandsberg is such a true reflection of the health of this establishment. I can honestly say now that a visit to this farm is an essential part of claiming to have visited the Cederberg area. Both my wife and I are in wheelchairs and we were so touched and amazed how well the facilities were catered for our needs. We and our 5 children were taken care of in true South African tradition, this place, and of course its owners, deserves to be rated as the top 10 in SA! Thank you to the both of you for your love and care, you are truly two amazing individuals, may God bless you in abundance!

Baie dankie Chris en Annette vir julle vriendelike ontvangs. Dit was 'n absolute voorreg om op die plaas te kon oorbly. Ons was in Januarie daar, dus nie amptelike blommetyd nie, tog is die natuurskoon asemrowend en die tee wat daar verbou wou het 'n heerlike besondere geur!

Wir haben wunderbare Tage in Elandsberg verbracht. Annette und Chris haben uns so herzlich empfangen, dass wir sehr sehr gerne noch länger geblieben wären. Die Tier- und Pflanzenwelt, die Chris so toll erklären kann, zieht einen schnell in ihren Bann. Auβerdem ist der Anbau und die Verarbeitung des Rooibos sehr interessant. Beeindruckend ist, wie der hohe Qualitätsstandard bei den African Dawn Bio-Tees erreicht wird. Es war ein ganz besonderes Erlebnis in Elandsberg zu sein. Vielen Dank Annette und Chris für die einmaligen Erinnerungen, die wir mit nach Hause nehmen durften!

Thank you very much. We thoroughly enjoyed the Rooibos tour and my husband cannot stop talking about the wonderful hospitality from Chris and Annette. We will definitely be back for the fynbos and rock tours. Kind regards, Siva, Edwina and Matthew
