Bo-plaas became the property of Nico and Melodie Ferreira in 1988. On this part there was an old farm house that was sadly falling apart. The idea of having a guest house started here, but was only realised in 2000 when the house was finally restored to its formed beauty. Soon after the owners had their first visitors it became a hot spot for mountain climbers, hikers and nature lovers. In 2004 the ablution facilities was built and 8 camp-sites was put up under the shades of 4 big old oak trees. In 2005 a big lapa followed where there have been many weddings since. In 2007 the owners decided to built the “River chalet” and in 2008 the “Heuningkrans chalet” followed.
