Jonqua farm is situated on the scenic Garden Route - the farm overlooks the beautiful Jonkersberg and Outeniqua mountains and is on the R102 road between George and Mossel Bay. We are only 13 km from the George airport and 6 km away from Great Brak River, Glentana and the ocean.

Jonqua has three self-catering cottages – “Liefde” “Rus” & “Vrede” – they all overlook the dam with plenty of black bass for fishing. Come relax and enjoy the tranquillity of this setting – perfect accommodation for nature lovers, golfers, mountain bikers and families.

Jonqua farm got its name from the mountains surrounding the farm on the horizon – the Jonkersberg and Outeniqua Mountains.

“When we bought the farm, we decided that a place so peaceful and relaxing must be shared with special guests who would appreciate this tranquil lifestyle close to nature”

Make Jonqua your own for a few days...and experience a breakaway in true style…
