About Us

Whenever one needs to escape from the City, to chill or to think, to celebrate or to play or to create memorable experiences - TolkaBos B&B is the place to be.

TolkaBos was named after the two owners, Tol & Karel, and the Fynbos on the farm. This dairy farm is situated in the Swartland – an easy 50km drive from Cape Town on the N7 towards Malmesbury.

We love the outdoors and farming and run the B&B with passion and hospitality towards our guests who can easily become part of the family too.

In a huge two hectare FYNBOS garden one can explore the different species of FYNBOS, enjoy the birdlife and row on the farm dam to relax. Another option is to take a walk through the farm yard. Farm animals, such as calves, lambs, pigs and horses, may be touched and loved.

At home, on the patio’s in the quad, one can read at one’s own leisure or enjoy swimming in the beach pool, all whilst breathing the fresh country air. With enough fire wood on the farm, we keep the fires burning, both inside for the winter months and outside during autumn and spring evenings, for a relaxing sunset braai.

Be amazed at the stars in the clear night sky and remember the lanterns, lights in the garden and the pool, for a long time to come. Wake up to the sounds of the farm animals, sit back and relax on the stoep, overlooking the Hawequa and Paarl Mountains, fynbos, garden and farm dam.

Due to the central situation of the farm, many places of interest are within easy visiting distance. One can explore the surrounding wine farms of Durbanville, Malmesbury, Riebeeck Kasteel and Darling as well as the hospitality of the small, well known town, Philadelphia.


We can comfortably host eight (8) people in a spacious house, furnished to reinforce the farm-style mood and are committed to keep our prices reasonable.

With vegetables from our own organic garden and other free-range products, we have a breakfast to die for. If you choose to dine 'at home', you will also experience 'boerekos' at its best.

Thus – take a ‘mental health’ break and have a stay with us on our farm in the peaceful Swartland area.
