Woodpecker B&B is centrally situated on the MALOTI ROUTE. Ficksburg was named after General Jan Fick in 1867 and enjoys a scenic location along the banks of the Caledon River below the Imperani Mountain and is separated from Lesotho by a border post and bridge crossing the river. Thanks to the Katse dam project, Ficksburg has grown quite a cosmopolitan community.

The majestic Maluti's form a backdrop of purple haze in summer, to snow capped peaks in winter. Up in the hills of the Maluti Mountain are numerous caves with lovely examples of San rock art. Ficksburg is the gateway to Lesotho and the Katse dam, which is definitely something to see. Ficksburg is best known today for its annual cherry festival, the oldest festival in South Africa which takes place in November.

Woodpecker Guest House is only 2 km away from the Lesotho border, 110 km away from Katse dam, 75 km away from the town of Clarens and the Golden Gate nature reserve. The Afri-Ski resort is a mere 1 hour's drive from the Guest House, which is ideal for the many people that stay with us and visit the resort as day visitors to experience the snowfall months from June until August.
