Galenia Estate was originally one of the first farms to be settled in the area, long before the Cogman’s Pass was blasted out in 1877.


Originally called Boontjiesrivier (Little Bean River) it has had a number of ‘incarnations’ during its long history. Most recently the estate was owned by a Belgian family who constructed the guest house and planted the olive grove, but they sold it in 2015 to the Bailey family of British decent who have been involved in Africa – with major investments in Tanzania – for over 50 years.

The small but active and enthusiastic team of professionals maintain the estate, nurture and harvest the olives and provide warm and welcoming hospitality.
