Nestled in the heart of this unhurried region of South Africa is the Desert Wind Private Game Farm. Located appropriately off the beaten track, approximately 200km from Cape Town and 40km from Montagu (its nearest town), Desert Wind is the perfect vacation haven for those who want to really get away from it all.
Our self-catering accommodation ranges from a 10 sleeper guest house (with a Jacuzzi), a 4-sleeper guest cottage , Eland ), a 4-sleeper stone cottage (kliphuis) and two luxurious king suites. (Zebra and Springbok)

Our picnic areas at two bomas make for special and unique dining experiences as you gaze at the canopy of stars above and marvel at the clear night sky.

You will also find it hard to beat the experience of sitting on your patio and admiring the breathtaking views of the mountains, whilst imbibing the majestic silence and peacefulness of the Little Karoo region, where the air is clean and the tranquility adds a touch of luxury. there is a wifi hotspot at the reception for those guests who need to stay in contact .
The small shop stocks ice and some basics for those who forgot something or just need to stock up.(cash only) Fire wood can also be ordered

In Room Facilities:

The farm is too remote to be supplied with power from Eskom (the national supplier), but successfully manages to avoid the noise made by generators by making use of gas and solar power instead.

All accommodation is self-catering. The Large Guest house kitchen is adequately equipped with a fridge, freezer, oven and stove. It is also stocked with plenty of pots, plates and cutlery, so you will only need to bring your own food and drinks along.

The guest cottage, stone cottage and luxury stable suites are each equally well equipped.

Area Information:

The Klein (Little) Karoo is classified as an arid region and receives less them 400mm of rain a year.

December - February (Summer)

Summer in the Klein Karoo is usually warm with temperatures ranging from 16deg C (61deg F) at night to 31deg C (88deg F) during the day. Thunderstorms also occur during this time, although these are often infrequent and irregular.

March - April (Autumn)

Possibly the best time to visit the Klein Karoo, Autumn sees the late Summer subsiding and the vegetation turning to reach colours of yellow, orange and red before cool Winter sets in. Temperatures during these months range from 12deg C (54deg F) at night to 28deg C (82deg F) during the day.

May - July (Winter)

Winter is cool with little rain. Snow can sometimes cap the high mountains of the region for short periods during the Winter months and light frost also occurs occasionally. Temperatures range from 5deg C (41deg F) at night to 19deg C (66deg F) during the day.

August - September (Spring)

Spring sees the flowers of the Klein Karoo coming out to bloom in all their glory. The northeaster also provides a refreshing breeze and brings with it warmer weather. Temperatures during these months range from 7deg C (45deg F) at night to 25deg C (77deg F) during the day.

Really enjoyed our stay lovely views and really quiet and peaceful. Jason was an excellent host coming to look for us on the Friday evening when we got lost and pulling our bakkie out of a riverbed when we got stuck nothing was too much trouble for him.

We had a wonderful stay. The guest house was more than enough. The farm manager was very professional and made sure we were comfortable. This place is amazing if you want to get away from the busy city life. Amazing views of the night sky and so peaceful.

The Dried Fruit Factory Shop is a must to visit. Its a pity the hot springs was closed to all day visitors due to Covid.

Okay. 3 out of 5

Quiet little town with all the charm of a bygone era. Loved that they kept so much of the old town and restored so many places.
