Makiti

Good old fashioned hospitality

Makiti on the N3

Makiti’s unique domed mud huts can be spotted from kilometres away on the N3 between Villiers and Warden – it’s a ‘must stop’ for everyone driving this route! The large metal ants crawling up the building, the old wheelbarrows hanging on the wall and the odd art all add to its appeal. Oh, and don’t be surprised if you see piglets, chickens, donkeys and some Emus frolicking freely, ready to welcome you in.

The restaurant serves traditional food like Chicken Pie and Bobotie and the shop offers homemade jams and ice tea, which are made right there. Now also famous for its own biltong, chilli bites, dry wors and traditional Hop beer (perfect to enjoy en route as it is non-alcoholic!) Browse the gallery and gift shop and leave with some lovely local finds.

Spend the night under the quiet nightfall, where the fresh air will ensure you a good night’s rest. It’s advised that when visiting Makiti, you don’t rush. Take your time to really enjoy some good old fashioned Free State hospitality.
