Located in picturesque Schoemanshoek , a well known area in the Little Karoo, Montana Guest Farm is not only beautiful visually, but also appeals to the soul with its peaceful gardens and majestic mountains .

In the end we don't only want our guests to leave feeling relaxed and rejuvenated , but we also hope they depart from us with a sense of belonging .
Owners, Piet and Laura Schoeman, bought the Montana farm from the German owners who ran it for almost 20 years. Montana is now back in the Schoeman-family. Piet Schoeman is a 10th generation Schoeman in the Valley. His father and grandfather farmed on the neighboring farm of Berluda, mainly with apricots, tobacco and seed. Piet and his wife Laura, have been running Berluda Farmhouse and Cottages since 1998. She is a keen traveller, who spent years in Europe, where she learned to speak German and Dutch. She has a passion for tourism and people, and enjoys welcoming her guests personally. They have 3 children, and hope that one day one or more of the children will become involved in their farming and guest house enterprise. Piet is also an entrepeneur, and has slowly expanded his empire, to the point where he now runs the biggest ostrich farm in the world. It is our pleasure to take our guests on this interesting tour of a real working ostrich farm, incorporating all aspects of ostrich farming, and learning all about the latest trends in this dynamic industry. They invite you to stay with them and experience this tranquil valley in all its splendor.
Montana is a working ostrich farm nestled in the foothills of the Swartberg Mountains. With abundant fauna and flaura on the grounds around the property, it is truly a scenic setting that guests can explore on foot or by mountain bike. Montana is located close to numerous tourist attractions that Oudtshoorn is famous for. Amongst these are the Cango Caves and the scenic Swartberg Pass, arguably one of the most magnificent passes in South Africa. The historic road takes you over into the Great Karoo, to the quaint town of Prince Albert. Following the main road back, the Meiringspoort Gorge awaits visitors, and the cosy town of De Rust. In addition, guests can visit the Cango Wildlife Ranch, as well as one of the many local wineries in the area, or one of the interesting museums in town. The Ostrich Emporium is a must see. Coffee shops in the center of town invites you for afternoon breaks. Basically, Oudtshoorn is not an overnight stop, it is a destination in itself! With over 300 sunshine days per year, a few extra days to spend next to the sparkling swimming pool, is recommended. Winter or summer, the climate has something for everybody.
