We always love going to farms and this one is especially beautiful, a little rive, a barn and some animals. This farmstead will make you want to stay a while so take some time to relax and enjoy the surroundings. The dorms are in the horse stables so take an extra blanket in case you get cold. The family is an adventurous lot so take some climbing gear just incase. There is lots to see and do in the surrounding area so take a walk through town or up into the hills. A wonderful place a spend a few relaxing days.

If you enjoy the outdoors and adventure then visit Oudtshoorn in style. Centrally located in town this backpackers has allot to offer in a comfortable environment. Once you have met the friendly staff and family ask about all that the town and surrounding area has to offer. They are great at planning your day for you, from Tours to the Cango Caves to visiting the Swartberg Pass on mountain bike. The ostrich farms are close by if you are up for a ride on them or you can adventure out to the magnificent pools and waterfalls. After a long day out relax at the pool or in their wonderful bar and enjoy the clear night skies.

Karoo Soul

Guide No: RT1606 -::- Tel: 044 272 0330 -::- Mail: info@karoosoul.com

If you are looking for some hidden peace and quite then this place will feel like home. They will take you in and advise you on what is around the town and surrounding area and then let you pick and choose. Looking out from their veranda you will see the flowing garden that seems to end in the surrounding mountains and hills. A bottle of wine in the evenings under the stars would be the perfect way to gaze away the time.
During your days you can wonder off to town and experience the local curio shops or go down to the museum for some local history.
