is the perfect halfway stopover or country retreat for the nature-lover and discerning traveler.
The farm lies within walking distance of the Orange River just below the Gariep Dam wall on the border between Northern Cape, Eastern Cape and Free State. Tar roads take you straight to our door where you’ll be greeted with typical Karoo hospitality.
