Driven by a love for nature, PC and his family accepted the responsibility to conserve and protect the land that was entrusted to them. Now after three generations of traditional Karoo sheep farming, they would like to invite you to share with them the beauty and tranquillity of the Karoo Gariep Nature Reserve(established 2015). They intend to share the hidden treasures of this arid landscape, and their way of living with you and to create an opportunity for you to experience the Karoo as their special friend.
The following accommodation options are available namely:
- Guest Farm (sleep 18 guests)
- Karoo Gariep tent camp (sleep 12)
- Stoffels Rus self-catering cabin (sleep 4)
At Karoo Gariep Nature reserve we offer a variety of activities, from bird watching, night drives, a 3 day horse trail, fishing and mountain biking. Come and enjoy the finest the Karoo has to offer.
