During 2014 we came across and purchased an isolated plot with the most magnificent views of the Sneeuberg Mountains.
In 2015 we assembled a team of locals and started an owner built adventure.
From our Karoo farm , Ou Tweefontein, hidden 53 km away in the Sneeuberg mountains we sourced all the necessary poplar beams for the thatch structure, as well as the reeds which were used for the ceilings of the rooms.
We look forward to giving all our guests a very warm welcome and endeavor to make your Karoo visit unforgettable!

Camdeboo National Park offers two 4x4 routes for the adventure seeker. The Koedoeskloof 4x4 trail provides approximately 9 kilometres of rugged roads and scenic views. The trail can only be done in a 4x4 vehicle (no 2x4’s with diff lock) and a round trip can be completed in about 4 hours.
It is well worth setting a day aside to enjoy a picnic or braai at the highest point of the trail in the Winterhoek area of the Park. Another popular 4x4 trail in the Park is Driekoppe which takes you to the top of Hangklip with its panoramic view or down to Wolfkloof and its beautiful waterfall. The rocky hill provides a 360 degree view of the landscape.
Other hiking trails in the area include the 1.5 km Crag Lizard trail which starts at the parking area of the Valley of Desolation and takes you to the best viewing spots in the valley. The 2km Gideon Scheepers trail begins at the Gideon Scheepers monument and is an ideal circular short walk out of town and back.
If you prefer longer distances, Eerstefontein offers a 5km, 11km and 14km trail which starts and ends at the foot of Spandaukop. The Camdeboo Conservancy, which is made up of some 22 farms over some 80 000 hectares, offers excellent accommodation on scenic guest farms with hiking trails and adrenaline pumping 4x4 trails.
You may not believe it, but watersport is an exciting pastime in the Karoo ranging from power-boating, skiing, yachting and canoeing to windsurfing, jet skiing and fishing in the Nqweba Dam. All watersports should be arranged with the Camdeboo National Park, but if you are not a water baby simply enjoy a relaxing picnic or braai in the serene setting of the park.
