About US

“Less than 25 kilometres from George across the scenic Outeniqua Pass lies a magical valley - Waboomskraal or rather “Wagenbooms Kraal“, as it was first known. This valley is the home of Misty Orchards, a quaint retreat for those seeking the peace and tranquility of the mountains.

Here, more than 2500 years ago, the San people watched herds of animals from the caves high up in the mountain and hunted them as they migrated through the valley to greener pastures. Here, settlers first put their roots down in the 1870’s and planted the first fruit trees.

Today, Waboomskraal’s unique climate is ideal for the production of high quality apples and pears. Row upon row of hop orchards confirms that this is the country’s premier hop growing region

Spring, Summer, Autumn or Winter, Misty Orchards offers its guests something special!

In September and October the Fynbos on the mountain side are in full bloom, Proteas, pincushions and hundreds of species of Fynbos. Apple and pear orchards turn the landscape into a sea of white and pink blossom. Summer follows, with rows of Hop orchards towering skywards. Apple and pear trees are laden with fruit - a time for enjoying the richness of nature’s gift and spending evenings around the fire. Autumn brings a multitude of rusty colours, winter’s nights are warmed by cosy indoor fires; crispy, fresh days are ideal for leisurely walks.

Walking alongside fruit trees, past sparkling dams and fynbos covered slopes!

The many paths and farm roads of Waboom offer many opportuinities for walking or cycling. There are several large dams where fishermen can try their hand at catching bass. Pack your breakfast or picnic lunch and enjoy it along the route.

Misty Orchards lies on the slope of the Outeniqua Mountains, on a farm called Waboom, and overlooks row upon row of fruit orchards which stretches accross the valley to the distant mountains. Waboom is a fruit and hop farm of Southcape Produce, which is a subsidiary of one of South Africa’s leading agri producers, the Dutoit Group.

Misty Orchards is a self-catering guest house, and lies on the slopes of the Outeniqua mountain. It derives its name from the refreshing mountain mist that creeps across the Outeniqua’s in the late afternoon. The mist nourishes the pristine fynbos on the mountain side behind Misty Orchards and is ideal for the fruit orchards which fall away in front of the guest house against a backdrop of mountain vistas. Misty Orchards offers guests superb accommodation, fresh mountain air, lovely walks and cycle trails - simply time to reflect and relax at a magical mountain retreat.
