Karoo 1 Guest Farm
Karoo 1 Guest Farm estate is situated at the far southern tip of the Karoo. It is the first farm when coming up the Hex Pass from the Hex River Valley.

The Hotel offers 24 rooms on an active farm propoerty which encompases many activities, including sheep, fruit trees (apricot and cherry), honey and an artisan distillery which produces the Bergerac brandy.

When exploring the property, which used to be called Karbonatjieskraal, one senses the connection of it’s history with the diamond route. Fortune seekers and diamond prospectors were known to have stopped at the Karbonatjeskraal to buy meat. The old road to the diamond diggings, the old Voortrekker Road, running parallel to the N1, is still used on the Karoo 1 Farm.

Karoo 1 Guest Farm has its own bar and restaurant, has two pools of which one is the renown rock pool. The rock pool is set in the beautiful Kloof and is totally natural. Eagles and baboons will be watching you taking the nicest bath ever.
