About Olive Grove Guest Farm

Olive Grove Guest Farm is a true oasis; ideal for corporate travellers and families alike. There is a special atmosphere evident perhaps due to the olive orchards that are unexpected in the Karoo. This is also a working sheep and game farm.

We are ideally situated only 15km off the main N1 route. Accommodation consists of seven Mountain View Chalets and six Olive Orchard Guest Rooms. All the units are TGCSA Graded and AA Highly Recommended; value for comfort in the Karoo.

The kitchen is fully equipped extending to a braai facility on the back ‘stoep’. Extra freezing facilities are available. Tea and coffee facility is accompanied by fresh milk and home baked cookies.

The braai option is served in the “Hlalanathi” Boma or at the comfort of your chalet. Self-braai unless otherwise arranged. There is a wide variety to choose from for your braai, Karoo lamb chops, venison and mutton braai wors, potato bake, country salad and braai sandwiches for the coals. If we know you are going to braai we arrange a bag of wood with blitz for your unit. An olive platter is a winner to enjoy with a glass of wine while braaing.

Lunch packs are available at an additional charge.


Nature offers a safe and clean environment for activity or if you so choose simple relaxation. Our guests are welcome to roam freely on our 5000ha farm by walking, jogging or mountain biking with the chance of seeing game.

The swimming pool is a firm favourite in the summer months, towels are provided. If you need to stretch your legs after a long journey there is a short trail (Porcupine Trail), informative booklet, bird list and walking sticks make this an enjoyable experience. There are signposted and measured routes of different distances in every direction of the farm encouraging walking, jogging, mountain biking or quad biking, the chances of seeing springbuck, gemsbuck, blesbuck and other species is good.

If the dam has enough water the children always enjoy the canoes. If you would like to know more about our farm and olive processing, Ian will kindly take you on a farm tour. The Karoo National Park is a stones throw away and can be visited for a day with a picnic basket. Don’t forget to watch the sun go down around the fire with a drink at hand. All activities are extras that are charged accordingly.
