Natural Fencing

Many privileged South Africans live very secluded behind big walls and steel bars. In our village there is no more crime than in similar villages where-ever in the world and the fencing looks more friendly. Occasionally even eco-friendly as this fence of woven myrtle wood. The owner recently erected this fence to keep his dog inside and he planted some creepers that have to cover the wood in due time.

Paddle

A paddle in the Klein Rivier is one of the favorite activities of active locals and visitors alike. The more ‘lazy’ ones book a boat ride. And all of them enjoy the tranquility the surrounding nature offers…

Cricket on the Village Green

Every year, with Boxing Day, Stanfordians and visitors are enjoying a day long cricket on the Village Green. But it was hot this year (over 35 degrees C /95F) but despite this discomfort a great day with some South African sport celebrities like Schalk Burger and Bob Skinstead.
