Karoo Gariep Nature Reserve

The Ultimate Karoo Gariep Nature Reserve Experience

Driven by a love for nature, PC and his family accepted the responsibility to conserve and protect the land that was entrusted to them. Now after three generations of traditional Karoo sheep farming, they would like to invite you to share with them the beauty and tranquillity of the Karoo Gariep Nature Reserve (established 2015). They intend to share the hidden treasures of this arid landscape, and their way of living with you and to create an opportunity for you to experience the Karoo as their special friend.

Discover the Karoo


The Karoo is fast becoming a very popular wedding destination, and New Holme Guest House on the reserve would constitute a unique wedding venue. Marisca (PC's wife) understands the pressures of arranging a wedding, but you can rest assured that she will take care of business even to the smallest detail, making your day the most memorable of all. Both PC and Marisca promise an unforgettable family and friends weekend get-together for your special day. This unique venue lends itself to host a wide range of themes and wedding styles.
