What to do in the Darling region?
Accomodation and Game drives
At our neighbouring and sister farm Burgherspost, we have the perfect place for you. The two self-catering cottages are the perfect way to experience life on a farm and get away from everyday life.
Evita se Perron
It is at Evita se Perron in Darling that you can meet Tannie Evita as well as many of South Africa's most loved icons and loathed aikonas along with other respected and yet scandalous members of Evita Bezuidenhout's family.
Darling Wine Shop
This family-owned business is the brainchild of négociant Charles Withington and provides a one-stop shop both physical and online. While we do focus on Darling wines, there is also a small section of gems – “not Darling but dear to me” – a few exceptional wines from vineyards which have a personal connection.
San Culture & Education centre
This fascinating insight into the culture, heritage, knowledge and modern-day life of the San of southern Africa can be explored when accompanying a group of qualified San guides.
The Marmalade Cat
Restaurant and Shop
The Marmalade Cat is the perfect place for a bustling atmosphere, freshly prepared, flavour-filled breakfasts, lunches, morning and afternoon teas.
Duckitt Nurseries specializes in producing and exporting top quality Cymbidium Orchid cut-flowers. We are constantly breeding, selecting and importing new varieties, to accommodate the needs of an ever-changing global flower market.
Game- and Nature Reserve
Buffelsfontein Game- & Nature Reserve is a private game reserve situated on the R27 in the heart of the West Coast. Come and enjoy from magnificent wildlife to superb South African scenery.
Local beers and food
At this stage The Slow Quarter is a taproom, rather than a brewery, with Darling’s beers being brewed elsewhere. It’s a funky place to sit and sip Darling’s six-pack of ales and lagers accompanied by some South African snacks.
The museum was founded in 1978 by the Darling Women’s Agricultural Association as a Butter Museum and one section of the museum now houses a collection of artefacts illustrating the beginnings of the butter making industry of Darling.
