Most of our clients visit EL YOLO OnE more than once. Remember, all year long is high season. El Yolo OnE is in a Malaria free area.

EL YOLO OnE is in the process to expand the game camp. To do this, we had to erect approximately 4 km of fencing, 2.4 m high. This is a very expensive and time consuming process. The EL YOLO OnE staff decided to make life easier. We made a template for the main posts as well as one for the droppers. These templates are a piece of plastic pipe, cut in half in the length and we drilled holes in the pipe, spaced to accommodate the fence wire spacing.

All the wooden posts and droppers were then drilled, in the work shop, with the same wire spacing. We planted all the posts and tied two droppers on each side of the post, with string. We then pushed the fence wires through the holes and tighten it in about 500 m stretches. Afterwards the droppers were spaced equally and each dropper was tied in two places only.

Six workers could erect approximately 200 m with 14 wires per hour, digging of the post holes and tying of the droppers, excluded. We made time studies of the different tasks and will give more detail at a later stage.

EL YOLO OnE is a privately owned three star guest farm with self catering accommodation, situated on the border of the Western Cape and the Eastern Cape. Here you can relax, experience nature, farm life, 4x4 tracks and much more. The nearest old fashioned town is Klaarstroom and it is very close to Meiringspoort, one of the eight Unesco World Heritage sites in South Africa. The guest farm is also within a few kilometre from the small town of Willowmore and the fascinating Baviaanskloof. Even Prince Albert, De Rust and Oudtshoorn can be visited on day trips from EL YOLO OnE guest farm.

Annual events in the area make the guest farm a popular accommodation option and bookings are essential. Some local events and attractions include the KKNK or Klein Karoo Nasionale Kunstefees in Oudtshoorn (88 km) in April, snow during July and August, the Meiringspoort Marathon during October, and escaping the city life during Decembers and any other time of the year.
