OUBAAS Trail now open

We are pleased to announce that the Oubaas Trail is well used and the hikers/walkers have been most considerate by using the Donation Box outside the Museum to show their appreciation.

Should anyone wish to retrieve any information regarding Smuts House or history, please email us and we will assist where possible:

Ouma Isies Tea Garden is also fully functional now. Contact Jan du Toit at: 072 728 8982 for reservations. 

MUSEUM: Visiting hours

Please take note that as of 15 September 2020 the Museum will be open to visitors on Wednesdays, Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays from 9:00 to 16:00.
We have kept our prices as low as possible in the foregoing years but need to align ourselves with other Heritage Sites. Bear in mind the entire homestead is private property and we benefit from no grants or subsidies. Many thanks for your support.

From the 16th December we will be open every day from 09:00 – 15:00 barring 25 and 26 December 2020.

On the 24th and the 31st we will be open from 09:00 – 12:00

We will also be closed on New Year’s day – 01/01/2021.
