One group walk through the stunning farm is included in this holiday.
Gautami born and grew up in Mumbai. As a young girl, She hated cooking and because of this, her grand-mother would go hysterical. She continued with her ways, cycling around or playing street cricket with the boys. Then, her folks give her a cooking course as a present and the next thing she knew is that she was sitting with a bunch of excited girls who already knew how to roll a roti, all round and thin.

Numerous Southern African birds can be found on the farm and surrounds. From the resident family of jackal buzzards to the ever scarce friend the half-collared kingfisher, Guinevere Guest Farm is a birders delight. Flanked to the north and south by an extensive patch of renosterveld, you will be able to watch many endemic bird species. Generally speaking there is always a bird species to be seen.
Guinevere Guest Farm is somewhat of a gem when it comes to natural vegetation. Namely, Renosterveld a vegetation type of the "fynbos" biome now considered endangered, covers a major portion of the farm. You may start your walk at the house, make your way down and across the river, and once at the very top of the olive groves, you suddenly will step into absolute bliss. With a large number of wild flowers on display all year round, there is always something to watch.
