Farm 215 Private Nature Reserve

uilkraal valley


Farm 215 is located in the Uilkraal Valley (Valley of the Owl-corral). Both Spotted and Cape eagle owls are still abundant in this valley, proof of the fact that this valley has kept its natural sanity. The Valley is draped around the Uilkraal River, which now deposits its water into the Kraaiboschdam.

Covered with the unique “fynbos” vegetation of the Cape Floral Kingdom, ancient indigenous forest remains, award winning vineyards and guesthouses, pastures and old homesteads, the Uilkraal Vallei is one of the last strongholds where man still earns his keep while letting nature take the lead. Passionate yet professional, the Uilkraal Valley is ruled by innovative sustainability.

Farm 215 is situated on the Eastern hills rolling down into the valley and the lake of Kraaiboschdam. From farm 215 you can practically see everything that goes on in this valley : the award winning Lomond Wine Estate, Africa’s Southernmost indigenous forest “Platbos Forest”, the land of Flower Valley Conservation Trust, the base of sustainable wild flower harvesting, the historic farm houses of Bodhi Khaya Retreat, now a retreat centre and the old Uijlenes farm, now a wedding and function venue.
