Area Information:

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 sunsets 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.

It was a wonderful bed and breakfast! It is a perfect stop over point when driving from Johannesburg. The bedroom was clean and comfy! There is a lovely swimming pool to jump in after such a long drive. We had a amazing experience!

We found your booking system to be efficient and helpful, and we compliment you for that.

Our actual stay at Wagon Wheel was adequate, as we only needed sleeping and bathroom facilities for an overnight stay.

They did however welcome us on arrival in a pleasant and friendly manner, and their bar and restaurant facilities were enjoyable.

We will use your and Wagon Wheel facilities for any future trips.

Good for a stopover. Many shops and garages to stock up. It’s very hot in December so prepare for heat and have water on hand! We encountered very friendly people, both residents and families passing through Beaufort. We had a very positive experience. Beaufort is literally on the road to Cape Town so it was ideal for a stopover coming from Johannesburg.
