A Warm, Country Welcome to Imhoff Farm
Stunning Views, First-Rate Food, Organic Produce, Unique Shops, Beach Rides and Animal Encounters
Our historical Cape farmstead offers something special for everyone in your family to enjoy. It’s old world, yet original; beautifully situated, yet full of fun; tranquil, yet on the busy tourist route to Cape Point.
Equally popular with locals and far-flung visitors, this spot in the country provides a wealth of activities in which to indulge.
Stunning views, first-rate food, organic produce, unique shops, beach rides and animal encounters are just some of the many experiences on offer.
The Farm is open seven days a week with ample, safe parking available. But do browse through the different facilities and activities highlighted on this website, prior to your arrival. Each one is independently owned and operated, and has at least one page dedicated to it here. This is also where you’ll find useful information such as opening times and contact details for enquiries about prices, bookings and so on.

Paintball & Lasertag:
Sneaking through the bush. All’s quiet, where is everyone? A twig snaps to your right. You sink slowly to the ground scanning the bush. Nothing but your heart beating, sweat trickling down your spine, eyes and ears straining to pinpoint movement or sound. Bang, zzzzziip. A paintball whips past your shoulder. Dive, roll onto your knees. Another paintball splatters against the tree next to your head. Duck!! Laughter to your left. Spin, movement, shoot. Splat!! “Ouch” and your opponent is out of the game. Relief and adrenalin pump through your body as you realise that you have survived your first contact in a Paintball Game.

has both the mental and physical thrill of taking on the ‘enemy’ in a safe, exciting and environmentally friendly way. We play in a bush field with a rest area under the shelter of pine trees, having an area of thick bush for the sneaky shooters and an open grassland area with minimal bush for the leopard crawlers – a really awesome tactical field with something for everyone!
Unlike paintball, the laser gun emits a harmless infrared beam, so no pain, no danger and no tears! Unlimited ammunition and lives are included and no need for uncomfortable protective gear. Laser Guns can shoot a distance of 100 meters and all playing will be able to aim and feel the satisfaction of hearing the beeps from the gun and see the flashing lights confirming a ‘hit’!

Imhoff Snake Park – reptile sanctuary and rehabilitation centre
Rated one of the Beautiful South’s ‘must do’s’, Imhoff’s Snake Park is a reptile sanctuary and rehabilitation centre. It’s also an excellent destination for anyone interested in observing and learning about some of the most fascinating reptile species.
Once you get passed the male-mad African grey parrot (Yes, he actually wolf whistles at men!) and the alligators (Did you know that alligators and crocodiles obtain 90% of their energy from the sun?), you’ll find some interesting snakes and reptiles from around the world.
The blue-tonged skink, for example, is a fat creature with minute legs that looks like a cross between a snake and a lizard. Could it be living proof that snakes once had legs?
Other residents well worth observing include the awesome 3.5 meter long yellow anaconda, Californian King snake (which feeds on venomous rattle snakes), Mozambique spitting cobra, Burmese python, yellow rat snakes, and the African rock python (reputed to be the most intelligent snake in Africa).
Shaun is usually on hand to divulge fascinating facts about the animals. It’s also worth remembering that the Park contributes to saving species from extinction and protecting the natural environment they depend on.
The Snake Park also runs special educational events for schools and fun shows for birthday parties. The same is true of the nearby Higgeldy Piggeldy Animal Farm, which is why many groups choose to combine a visit to both.
Situated on the beautiful Imhoff Farm, Bisque-bah ceramic painting studio is a small creative space where people can enjoy painting functional ceramics. All items are painted on the premises then sent away for glazing and firing with a 2 -3 week collection time.
Francoise V Gallery and Interiors:
Francoise Van Vuuren – the gallery’s owner, curator and head artist – has had a lifelong dream to own a fine art photography gallery. The gallery also showcases the work of two up-and-coming photographers, Sally Wellbeloved and Alex Serafini.
Growing up in Botswana, Francoise always had an appreciation for nature, wildlife, culture and the simple beauty that surrounds us. She left Africa to travel and see the world. Through documenting her travels and the unique people that she met along the way, she soon discovered that photography was her true passion.
Heartwing Studio invites you to express your creative voice in a tranquil, safe space, free of judgement and expectation. Play with mixed media such as collage, printmaking, clay and drawing, through carefully guided workshops to experience the expressive language of art.
La Belle Armoire:
Translated as “The Beautiful Cupboard”, La Belle Armoire is a busy workshop. This is where owner Greg and his apprentices use their artistic talents to transform ordinary furniture into works of art. That’s if they’re not ‘on site’ painting stunning, intricately detailed murals on walls or ceilings.
Lindsay Quirk Art Studio:
There is always a different and exciting project on the go at Lindsay’s Art Studio, where Lindsay and her student artists let their creative juices flow.
Not your typical art teacher, Lindsay prefers to “facilitate” other creative adults to reach their true potential. The focus is on developing the individual’s talents, rather than on course work. More rewarding for the learner in Lindsay’s experience, this approach creates space to produce a wide range of work.
Purely Porcelain offers a range of beautifully hand-crafted jewellery made from porcelain, leather and silver.

Journey of the bowl and care
I spot a sleeping tree stump or root. From there I decide on what size is most suited. With a “HEAVE” and all my might I attach the great stump to my lathe.
I spend days and days spontaneously shaping the piece. After many hours of love a one-of-a-kind piece is organically brought to life.
Zoe Mafham Art:
Zoe Mafham is a collage artist working in an open studio on Imhoff farm (next to Off the Hook Seafood Deli), creating original art from paper.
“I recycle found paper, including maps, children’s books and envelopes, into original collages. I start in the middle with no pencil sketch and see what comes.” says Zoe.
