Where experiences produce lifelong memories

Farmstyle Guest House

History

Our guest house is a renovation of the farm owner’s homestead on one of the original farms that now forms part of the larger Nimeng ranch. This homestead comprises of a large kitchen, a lounge, surrounded by two bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms, and an additional two single-bed bedroom. All the bedrooms are accessed from the lounge without a separating passage. The accommodation complex also has four single "overnight traveler" bedrooms located in a new separate building with external ablution facilities. 


Architecture

This architectural design was particularly popular in the "golden oldy" days before television. Everyone living in the house usually convened in the lounge after sunset or after sunrise. They received their cups of coffee and meals from the kitchen, while enjoying each other’s company in the lounge before knocking off to work on the farm early in the morning or going to bed for a snooze in the evening.


Atmosphere

Each bedroom has the name of an indigenous bird that you can spot on the ranch. The interior decoration of rooms represents the particular feather colours of the selected bird.


Facilities

Both en-suite bathrooms have showers, toilets and up-class grooming facilities. The single-bed "overnight traveler" bedrooms share external showers, toilets and grooming facilities in separate ablutions for men and women close by these bedrooms. 


All the bedrooms are very comfortably furnished. The bedrooms in the main building are air-conditioned and the "overnight traveler" bedrooms meet the needs and requirements of overnight business guests such as agricultural sales representatives, farming quality inspectors, business consultants, insurance brokers, etc.  


The double-bed bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms are the ideal lodging place for visitors who just want to relax and enjoy the bush and farm life at Nimeng, and don’t want to be bothered with the “schlep” of cooking.


The indoor lounge is in the process of being equipped with a large flat-screen TV for not missing a particular sport, news or other important television programme. 


Environment

The building complex and its colourful garden is ring-fenced. There is also a fire circle in the centre of the front lawn for guests to enjoy an outdoor "braai", silence, the far away sounds of a jackal and night images of the bush.

At Nimeng we call this building the Aviary as all the rooms are named after birds sighted at Nimeng.
