is situated in Beaufort West. Beaufort West welcomes visitors who wish to study its fascinating ecology. It has been said the Karoo is not so much a place as a feeling.
When you come to the Karoo, it captures your soul and actually flees with it, and by the time when your visit is over you realize that it has taken over. With clean air and the beautiful sun sets you will not even want to go back to where you came from. It leaves footprints in you memory and plays with your senses.
It offers you a glimpse into the Anglo-Boer War. With this town being the oldest in the Central Karoo, you will be able to hear many interesting stories about the Boer-War that took place through this majestic landscape. Professor Chris Barnard the famous heart surgeon is honoured in three historic buildings, all national monuments, which make up Beaufort West`s museums. All gifts awards and presentations made to Chris Barnard are on display in the old town hall, which was built shortly after Beaufort West was proclaimed South Africa`s first municipality in 1837. It too is now part of the museum.
Beaufort West is the centre of an agricultural district based mainly on sheep farming, and is a significant town on the N1 national road.

We so enjoyed our stay at Aandblom. Our host was delightful and surprised us with delicious freshly prepared pancakes. Our room was beautifully decorated and sooooo comfortable. What we also enjoyed was the peace and quiet. We would also recommend going on a donkey cart tour.
Lovely room and super bathroom. Helpful owners and easy to find. Thanks so much.
