Activities at Anker Guesthouse

Philippolis is a lovely village for those who want to escape from the city for a few days. In this beautiful Free State Town, you can enjoy silence, closeness to nature, stargazing, birdwatching, no traffic, old-fashioned tranquility and friendliness.

In summer, relax under the grapevines, drink some locally brewed Karoo Beer, while the kids splash around in our large bore hole water pool.

Winter nights are cold, but perfect for star gazing. A hiking map is available from Jobhuis, our local art gallery.

Things to do in Philippolis:
  • Tiger Canyon, a conservation project dedicated to preserving the critically endangered Bengal Tiger, is approximately 30 km from town. Day passes may be purchased through us.
  • Otterskloof is a game reserve of outstanding scenic beauty situated about 30 km from town.
    They offer limited day activities such as swimming, hiking, game drives, fishing (own fish gear), veld braais and sunset drives. Advanced booking for day passes through us is required.
  • Jobhuis, our local art gallery and gift shop, is within walking distance from our guest house.
