The Concept of De Oude Kraal
De Oude Kraal Country Estate is a Bloemfontein Accommodation Guest House, based on a 2000Ha working sheep farm owned by a 6th Generation family where dedication and excellence is a way of living. A Bloemfontein Accommodation with a difference..De Oude Kraal – Lombard Family!
The concept of De Oude Kraal comes from the native Koi Tribe, they used the natural rocks from the area, to build the “kraal” (animal enclosure) that kept their livestock safe from predators.
This Free State Historical guest house is a natural extension from the “Kraal” concept, in that the guests experience the tranquillity, security and serenity of De Oude Kraal Country Estate & Spa. The Main House has its historical origin in 1885, where the restaurant is now located.
Currently we have had a wonderful rainy season that brings an end to a four year severe drought. Beautiful green as far as the eye can see.
