Your Hosts


At Kuifkopvisvanger, we are passionate about bird watching.

The Malachite Kingfisher inspired the name of this tranquil Velddrif farm. Tranquillity is the order of the day, with only the sounds of nature and the Fish Eagle as the soundtrack to your stay in one of our comfortable, stylish self-catering cottages.

Birdwatchers and nature lovers can enjoy fun outings to the Saltpans.
Kuifkopvisvanger is situated on the banks of the Berg River, you can easily enjoy a canoe ride on the river. Alternatively, you can take a stroll along the riverfront or enjoy a bicycle ride along the 8km stretch. Bring along your binoculars, as 180 different bird species have already been identified on the farm and the marshlands.

Fishing enthusiasts can try their hand at catching the big one at the train bridge over the Berg River. Kabeljou, Steenbras and Elf are some of the common catches here.

Kuifkopvisvanger has camping facilities for the outdoors enthusiasts and stylish self-catering cottages for those who love their home comforts.

The Kuifkopvisvanger Function Venue and Hall is a great location for your next party or wedding.
