Beyond the Moon Guest Farm

Share the serenity of this tranquil, 24-hectare piece of heaven nestling in the foothills of the neatly-brushed, lush green Outeniqua Mountains, just 15 minutes from the beaches of Wilderness. This is a precious little place of sanctuary that is something quite unique. Almost ‘otherworldly’, you might say … Which is why we like to call it: “Beyond the Moon.” 

Escape the world and travel Beyond the Moon. Take some time to renew, rejuvenate, recover and get back in touch with yourself and your loved ones.


Beyond the Moon is home to six self-catering cottages, each one as individual and out of this world as can be. A maximum of 34 guests can be accommodated.  Contact Sandra to book - 0665077606.
