Petervale Rules – for your safety, and ours

For your Safety

We do not allow smoking in our cottages.

The number of people is restricted to the number of beds per unit.
(If management suspects that the above rule is being transgressed, they reserve the right to carry an inspection of the unit anytime during the day or night) 

Farms, by their nature present many safety risks, and parents and/or adults are responsible for the supervision and safety of children in their care at all times, and particularly while they are swimming, boating, walking on the farm and visiting the farm animals.

Guests and visiting children may not

  1. Touch farm machinery or vehicles, or ride on farm vehicles.
  2. Enter farm working areas, buildings for enclosures or fields where there are animals.
  3. Provoke or try to ride on any animals.
  4. Interaction with farm animals should be guided by one of the farm staff.


Children may not climb on the mountain or go to the waterfall without adult supervision.



This is a high fire risk area. Fires in farm areas can cause millions of Rands of damage, and whoever causes a fire can be held liable for the costs of the damage. To avoid causing a fire please,

  1. Make camp fires only in designated fire places at camp sites.
  2. Do not make unnecessarily large fires which may ignite the trees above your camp site.
  3. Never leave a fire unattended – put out your camp fire thoroughly with water on going to sleep or on leaving your camp site. The wind can come up and reignite coals that are not properly put out.
  4. Open fires are a danger particularly for young children – never leave them alone near a fire.
  5. Make sure that children do not have access to matches and lighters and do not light ‘play’ fires.
  6. No fires, braais or smoking on the mountain or at the waterfall, or in the forests or fields
  7. If you see any smoke on the farm that is not from a Petervale camp fire or cottage, or on nearby farms or the mountain, please call us immediately – response time is critical to prevent fires from spreading.

Reuben 076 774 6432  Farm house 0233 13 4517

In the unlikely instance where we are not contactable and there is obviously a veld, forest or mountain fire, please call the firefighting services on 021 887 4446


  1. If a fire occurs on or threatens the farm, e.g. from the mountain side, campers and guests in cottages should move their vehicles to the open main farmyard area next to the kraal / dairy, but do not obstruct firefighting vehicles traveling towards the fire.
  2. Anyone who volunteers (only over 16) to assist with firefighting does so at their own risk. Proper shoes or boots are essential. This will be mainly to help prevent fires crossing firebreaks, where your safety is not at risk. Do not enter bush or wooded areas where a fire is burning.



Guests come to Petervale to enjoy the peace and quiet. Please do likewise and consider your neighbours.

  1. No electronic music what so ever. This includes music played from a cellphone – Failure to adhere to this rule will result is guests being asked to leave. There will be No refund to guests if asked to leave.
  2. Quiet after 9 pm and complete quiet after 10 pm. Many campers and especially children go to bed even before this.
  3. No parties, excessive drinking / drunkenness / loudness
  4. No generators or other noisy equipment



  1. Please make sure that no litter including cigarette butts is left anywhere at your camp site or on the farm.
  2. Please separate your rubbish and put what can be recycled in the designated containers. All organic waste should put in the compost bin
  3. Take care that packets, papers, etc. do not blow into the dam or area around you camp site.


Any violation of the above-mentioned rules gives the management the right to evict the visitors and his retinue from Petervale, without refund of any money already paid.

Thank you for being a safety-conscious and responsible guest, and helping to make Petervale a place you’d like to visit again!
