Helderberg Farm Team Building and Corporate Events Venue in Cape Town
The rustic Helderberg Farm Team Building Venue is situated 1km off the R44 on the Klein Helderberg Rd, 4,5km from the N2, at the foot of the Helderberg Mountain, between Stellenbosch and the Somerset West in the Western Cape. The venue is conveniently located only 45km from Cape Town International Airport, 5km from Somerset Mall and 12km from Stellenbosch. Somerset West, Strand (Melkbaai Beach) and Gordon’s Bay (Bikini Beach) are all within the 15km range.
Helderberg Farm offers a traditional South African charm as well as a friendly atmosphere in which to enjoy your team building event. The current owners are fifth generation of Hendrikz/Obermeyer family to have lived and farmed in the unique Boland Winelands. They are deliberately steering clear of the run of the mill commercialism on the farm and wine grapes of the highest quality are produced here.
The farm has a wide variety of venues available for team building activities; selected venues have electricity and fresh water available. The Helderberg Farm Team Building Venue is suitable for a wide range of activities including hiking, water activities, 4x4 routes, potjiekos competition, drumming, paintball, strawberry picking as well as the team building activities offered by TBAE.
Helderberg Farm is a unique venue with a rustic feel and serene atmosphere, surrounded by nature at the foot of the majestic Helderberg Mountain. The venue is ideal for outdoor functions and team building events, with views that overlook the beautiful gardens and ancient oak trees. The open air venue takes 100 - 300 people, and there are Bedouin tents, holding 100 - 120 guests, available as backup in case of rain. There is also an indoor venue available, which can accommodate 30 guests.
Visitors can expect to encounter indigenous wildlife on the farm. The fish eagle’s cry is regularly heard, blue crane pass over head on their way to Caledon and the Overberg and cape clawless otters leave their characteristic prints in the mud. Visitors may even come across the tracks of the cape leopard. Visiting birdwatchers have sighted over 100 different species of bird. The farm is home to one of the biggest Mountain Candlewood trees in South Africa, which is easily, accessed from the hiking trail.
Klaas Vechtman, the original owner of the farm in 1692, planted trees which remain to this day. Visitors can be assured of having a surreal experience in the woodlands on the mountain side. Visible from the hiking trail is a panoramic view encompassing the Cape Peninsula, False Bay, Table Bay and Table Mountain. On a clear day, hikers can even see Robben Island, which is approximately, 65km away. The Boland helderberg-farm- stretches to your right as far as the eye can see. The total distance of the Helderberg Farm hiking trail is approximately 20km, peaking at 1136m above sea level. This lengthy hike is rewarded by majestic views.
The location of the farm renders it free of most of the prevailing winds of summer and even winter, making this a well sheltered spot to enjoy when the howling Southeasterly wind chases most people off the beaches.
