The farm derives its charming name from the legendary colony of tortoises that was found in the vlei in the 1800’s. The beautiful piece of land was dubbed Skilpadvlei and has been in the hands of the Joubert family since 1917.
Today, fourth generation Willie Joubert upholds the proud family tradition of harnessing the rich potential of the land with a dedicated commitment to quality
Skilpadvlei can accommodate guests in one of the seven self-catering cottages along the dam or the eleven bed & breakfast rooms at the manor house. Surrounded with vineyards & landscapes.
