If you are a keen birder (birdwatching) do not be mislead by the name 'Owl House' or Owl Route. This has nothing to do with live owls! What a dissappointment to find the opposite! We found the turnoff on our touring holiday and being keen birders, we went to see what it is all about. If you are like us (birders) dont be mislead. Unless you like art as well! It is a beautiful Karoo drive on the gravel towards Middelburg. Again if you are looking for live owls...none to be found!
Nieu-Bethesda is TINY with very little to do but relax and enjoy the peace. The Owl House was incredible. It was actually eerie and magical, and I'll never forget the hours I spent staring at that incredible art!
It felt a jolly adventurous place to get to. Dust covered the road making it like an ice rink. Drive slowly! The owl house looked disappointing on the outside but was totally amazing inside. Our camera ran out of battery... we couldn't snap enough. Best of all is that you can choose your very own concrete owl to take home from the locals when you leave. You must go. I definately would go again and so would my husband.
