Uylenvlei Retreat and Conference Centre is located on the beautiful Fynbos Road between Gansbaai and Baardskeerdersbos in the Western Cape's unspoiled Southern Overberg. As part of the Strandveld, it is one of the most undisturbed and picturesque destinations in the region, about 14 kilometers from Gansbaai on the road to Cape Agulhas, the southernmost point of the African continent.
The retreat offers conference facilities, luxury self-catering units, well-equipped tent rondavels, Strandveld rooms, a sun heated swimming pool, braai facilities, a boma and safe parking. We also forms part of a hiking trail. We are ideally suited for team building, strategic planning, training courses, workshops, weddings, special functions or a getaway from the daily grind.
You'll find yourself amid the peace and silence of nature as it should be experienced. Experience the bird twitter by day, the relaxing night sounds and the most exquisite sunrises. It is important for us that you experience tranquility, serenity and inner peace. We're also the home of the Centre for Play Therapy and Training and closely connected to the Institute for Child, Youth and Family Studies.
We offer an excellent conference venue and training for professionals in various fields of child, youth and family issues along with evenings full of culture, music and entertainment for smaller groups. Children, especially the psychologically and emotionally damaged, are very important to us. We train professionals, nationally and internationally to intervene and heal these children through play therapy to communicate emotions, feelings, experiences and behaviour.
