Picnic, Camping, Conferences, Competitions & Outdoor Events
We bought the farm in October 2010 and we had tenants run the farm while we were living “the Big city life”. We bought the farm as a weekend get-away for the family. Over the years, we totally fell in love with the farm and its peaceful atmosphere and met some amazing people. The locals became our friends and we enjoy every individual! Neels grew up on a farm “Soek-mekaar” just outside Pietersburg and Estelle grew up on a smallholding in Centurion, PTA. With both of us loving nature, we wanted our two gorgeous boys to grow up with a love of nature, the way we did. December 2013 we made the big move!
Shortly after we have purchased the farm, we started with renovations. We started cutting bushes and opened some new tracks where we came across some challenging obstacles. We renovated the ablutions in 2011 and in 2013 we re-built the kitchen and recently turned it into a Tuck shop. In June 2013 we renovated the old braai’s and in December 2013 we installed 3 electrical points and additional lighting poles in the picnic/campsite area. In March 2014 we built the boma, that draws a lot of attention with the locals! We are planning more upgrades for Killarney. Some to look forward to in the near future will be opening of the pub, the revamp of our swimming pool and a few tented lodges.
We registered Killarney 4×4 as a closed corporation and run it as a family business. Neels has his own business and commitments, and therefore Estelle is responsible for the smooth running of Killarney 4×4 on a daily basis. Mom and Dad also moved to our farm in December 2013 and Mom is in charge of the Tuck shop and food preparations for events and functions and dad does all our maintenance on the farm. Neels assists where he is needed and is our main sponsor in all our upgrades!
All revenue generated from Killarney 4×4 is used to maintain & renovate the picnic area, ablutions & all other facilities. With our staff together we make a great team!
Events are a bonus for our local customers! We absolutely enjoy the organizing and planning of events, and as a family we do our best to ensure the smooth running of all events!
Our aim is to provide our customers with a bit of tranquility mixed together with a little bit of fun and adventure, where they can get away from “city life” and enjoy a weekend away with their families. The least we can do is to provide our customers with a clean picnic -and campsite- area and keep the ablutions clean and as hygienic as possible at all times. We maintain and upgrade our 4×4 tracks and obstacles continuously. We strive to make every customer feel welcome and want them to enjoy every moment they spend at Killarney 4×4!
Picnic & Camping
Not only does Killarney 4×4 have great tracks & trails but it also has a picnic/campsite where all are welcome. The Picnic and campsite area has built-in braai‘s with braai grids, each with their own picnic spot so do not forget your cooler bag!
Electricity points available in the Campsite area. If you want to enjoy a modern camping experience you will need to bring your own extension cords.
Relax around the swimming pool that overlooks the picnic area. The swimming pool is next to the Lapa, inside the picnic area. Remember to bring your swimming attire, umbrellas/ gazebo’s, towels and sunblock.
A spacious lapa to host conferences, training workshops, birthday parties, year -end functions. Electricity in the Lapa. A big screen & monitor is available for hire for use in the Lapa.
Modern ablution blocks with gas heated geysers. Men’s and Ladies both have showers and flushable toilets, a bath in the ladies and urinal in men’s. We strive to keep our ablutions as clean as possible at all times. We supply fresh hand towels, hand soap and toilet paper on a daily basis. Please bring your own bath soap and bath towels.
We sell Braai wood, Fire-lighters, Ice, cool drinks, chips, sweets and some home-made Killarney Biltong. The nearest town is Hillcrest, which is about 20 minutes’ drive (depending on your vehicles horsepower and speed), so do not panic if you left something at home.
