Platbakkies Farm Retreat is situated on a working farm off the R355 between Kliprand and Springbok in the heart of the Namaqualand of South Africa. On the edge of the Bushmanland, it contains the best of both worlds in that it showcases both the seemingly never-ending plains and the grassy vegetation of the Bushmanland and the mountainous scenery and scrubbery of the Kamiesberge. It is situated at about 120 kilometers from Springbok and 80 kilometers from Garies

The farm is home to a wide variety of animals and offers various activities such as partaking in the farming activities, walking, biking, game drives, bird watching or day trips in the area.
