We've been relaxing visitors for more than 30 years... Mountain biking, hiking, Montagu Tractor Trips, 4x4 trails and amazing African Style cuisine your next summer getaway will be absolute at Protea Farm! Protea Farm is situated in the famous KOO valley, 29km from Montagu in the heart of the scenic Route 62.
Due to the cold climate and winter snow the valley provides the perfect conditions or producing apples and pears. During this time proteas also blossom wild on the mountain.
Protea Farm offers something special, throughout each season. From the beautiful colours of the orchards during autumn, to icy winter nights snuggling in front of a fireplace, right through to the beautiful blossoms of spring, and vibrant summer days of fun such as swimming in the farm lake, beautiful hiking trails, fly-fishing, camping as well as idyllic territory for mountain biking.
With the rugged and absolutely beautiful Koo and Keisie valleys the terrain on Protea Farm is perfect for outdoor experiences and in 1985 the farm started its legendary unforgettable Montagu Tractor Trips combined with Liesa's Potjiekos lunches up the Langeberg Mountain. This event is very popular to both local and foreign guests.
When you fall in love with the peaceful surroundings of the farm, there are four private cottages that can be rented. The adventurous can take their 4x4 on the open mountain trails and fully experience the outdoors.
At Protea Farm we offer more than just the usual activities for our guests.
The tractor trips take place on Wednesdays and Saturdays (large groups can be accommodated on other days of the week except Sunday). The tractor, pulling its load of sightseers, meanders its way up the Landeberg Mountain, reaching an altitude of 1500m above sea level. On the way up you will have a bird’s eye view of the Koo Valley and, once at the top, you can look down into the Robertson Valley. After a brief stop at the mountain hut for a surprise you head down again.
This makes Protea Farm the “perfect destination” for outdoor enthusiasts! Enquire now about our activities and combine your next getaway to the great Koo Valley countryside with unforgettable experiences.
