Welcome to Imla Guest Farm & Wedding venue

The cornerstone of everything IMLA flows from its Hebrew meaning: Whom God will replenish. Whom God will fill up. Five generations have created a winning culture for African conditions, building on the achievements of their predecessors.

We aim to be associated with raising living standards, economic growth, and social cultural enhancement of rural areas. We are driven by the strong demand for family orientated recreational activities provided at an economical cost, compared to other holiday packages. We are dedicated to the customer demand for local food and experiences during the farm stay.

Imla Guest Farm is focussed on travellers that seek new and different experiences, adventure tourism continues to grow in popularity. Adventure tourism, according to the Adventure Travel Trade Association, is a tourist activity that includes physical activity, a cultural exchange, or activities in nature.
