DeMist Cottages & River Camp - Situated on a working Citrus farm near Patensie, en-route to the Baviaanskloof, Eastern Cape

DeMist Cottages and River Camp is a family run business that receive guests for more than 20 years already.

Located just outside the town of Patensie on a working farm, we are right in the heart of this world-famous citrus area.  Well situated for a night’s stay on your way to or from the UNESCO World Heritage site, The Baviaanskloof alternatively it is also the ideal for a break from life in the City.

You can find us on Google maps but we are 15 km outside town towards the Baviaanskloof and 17 km before you leave the tarmac to hit the gravel road into the kloof.

DeMist Cottages Accommodtion near Patensie

At DeMist there are two fully equipped for self-catering cottages. The cottages are ideal for staying over when travelling to or from the Baviaanskloof Mega Reserve. 

Old Pollie

Old Pollie is a self-catering cottage near the mainstay, but still very private. The old Garden Cottage original room, now bedroom is almost 200 years old but we added a bathroom and a fully equipped open plan kitchen and living space. 

The little veranda looks out on the garden and aviary, where some of the other local residents are a normal sight, this include grysbokkies, mountain tortoises and bantam chickens. 

The small Lapa is private and rustic and the best place to spend a long evening under the starlit skyline with a nice fire in the round fire pit. 

The  cottage sleeps two to three people and is perfect for a couple that needs a break away for the weekend, elderly people that wants to be close to other people, but still want privacy or a small family.  It is for this reason that we also included a jungle-gym in the garden.

Old Pollie is 10 minutes’ walk from our River Campsite and the majestic Gamtoos River that runs over the farm. It is close enough for sundowners, fishing or to have a picnic next to the river.

Old Bearie

Old Bearie is a much larger self-catering unit and all though it is free standing away from the mainstay it is still close to the road and very accessible.  

This unit sleeps 6 to 7 people and sport a nice big Lapa, perfect for the bigger family or that group of friends that like to travel together.  

With a double bed room, a two single bed room and a three single bed room there are ample space.  

The open plan kitchen living area has a fire place for winter and are fully equipped.  Old Bearie is an old farmworkers house that we revamped without losing the rustic style or atmosphere.  The Cottageis about 1 km from the river camp and since the river bank is accessible with a small car this should not keep you from your fishing or picnic next to the river.

Please take note : From experience we discovered that in the end less television is more. Not having televison enhance the ultimate experience on the farm and the idea of getting away from everyday life.  Therefore, after careful consideration, we decided to have no television sets in our self-catering cottages.

DeMist River Camp near Patensie

At the DeMist River Camp we cater for the outdoor lover and general camping population who appreciate nature.

Again, we try to keep life simple and quiet, with no electricity and no generators allowed. We also have strict rules about radios and loud music.

Our communal ablutions are open-air but private – when was the last time that you had a nice hot shower under the African sky?

With gas geysers and flushing toilets, you do not need to fret about general convenience.

Our six campsites each has their own braai area and tap.

At the De Mist River Camp there are also spacious 3 x 6 m camping huts each with a 3 x 6 m verandah with a braai. There is no electricity.

Bring everything you would’ve for camping except your tent and matrass. Please note : no bedding is included.

The lone standing huts are perfect for families with young children or anybody who loves being outdoors but are less keen on putting up a tent.

Since you are on the bank of the Gamtoos River why not pack a fishing rod as well. From experience natural bait like earthworms always works but that does not mean you should not bring your whole tackle box with all the “pap” flavours and lures Species you can expect to catch are Carp, Eel, Curper, Barber and even Bass if your lucky.

If fishing is not your thing, just sit back and enjoy a sundowner and admire the wonderful birdlife that includes our resident pair of fish eagles.

Activities at DeMist

Right through the year we offer hiking on the farm and surrounding veld, birdwatching and fishing.  DeMist is close enough to go mountain biking for the day in the Baviaanskloof or to visit some of the other main towns like Jeffreys Bay or Port Elizabeth.  

The farm is 24 km from the Kouga Dam.

But mostly on the farm we offer you peace, fresh air, quiet, nature and time to rest.

Please contact your host Jansie at DeMist directly for bookings & enquiries.
