Activities and Attractions

Our Guesthouse is nearby a golf course for those of you bringing your golf clubs along, and the Karoo National Park - with lovely scenic routes, more than 6000 fauna and flora species and there is also two endangered species, the Riverine Rabbit and the Black Rhinoceros which have been successfully resettled. The park is home to five tortoise species, the most in any conservation area in the world.

The park also has challenging 4x4 routes into the mountains, walking and fossil trails. We are near the N1, but yet so far from any noise, only the sounds from nature and approximately 10km away from the airport and within the vicinity of the Chris Barnard Museum - Dr Chris Barnard (who performed the first heart transplant) was born here.

Our museum is very popular due to this. You can go for a visit and see lots of interesting things there, including the Sending Kerk and Stadtshuis. The Stadtshuis was first to be built in the Karoo. Also 400 year old engravings from the herb “guru” king in Nelspoort, Malteno Pass and of the indescribable Meiringspoort!
