Situated on the R355 between Kliprand and Springbok, Platbakkies is a farm in the heart of the Namaqualand of South Africa. On the edge of the Bushmanland, it contains the best of both worlds in that it showcases both the seemingly never-ending plains and the grassy vegetation of the Bushmanland and the mountainous scenery and scrubbery of the Kamiesberge. It is situated at about 120 kilometers from Springbok and 80 kilometers from Garies. Platbakkies is central to the farms in the area, which are far removed from these two small towns. For this reason, it used to sport a gas station, general store and post office, the evidence of which still stands proud and tall on the farm.
We are blessed to spend our lives on a sheep farm under the African skies, so we decided to share it with friends and foreigners from all over the world. Come share our adventures and experiences on a traditional working farm in Namaqualand, South Africa
