Karoo Gariep Nature Reserve

There are 5 accommodation options to choose from namely: the Mieliefontein Karoo Guest Farm; the Wolmade self-catering cottage (managed by Ian & Elma); the New Holme Karoo Guest House; Stoffels Rus self catering log home and the Karoo Gariep tent (managed by PC & Marisca).

The Perfect Venue

New Holme Karoo Guest Farm

New Holme , where angels rest under tall trees (as PC believe!) provides a warm, homely atmosphere, nestling in the splendour of the surrounding nature and sleeps 27 guests. Here you can participate in night drives, birding, and also see the only hippos in the Karoo. Marisca, PC and their four daughters are the owners and managers, and they will ensure that you are well looked after. New Holme is a popular wedding venue, and even Paul and Sarie (Paul C Venter writer, producer & director) chose this venue to celebrate their wedding.

Situated 8Km off the N1, 25 km from Hanover and 50km from Colesberg.

Mieliefontein Karoo Guest Farm

Mieliefontein, well known for its gardens and sumptuous meals, is a good place to rest and refresh your soul and can sleep 18 guests. You can enjoy a glass of wine on the porch overlooking the lush garden that seems so out of place in this dry landscape. Elma and Ian (also the owners of Mieliefontein) will be your hosts and intend to make your stay a memorable one. The dinners are a haute cuisine experience par none, and guests just have to return for more!

Situated 8km from the N1 on the R389, 16 km's from Hanover and 53 km's from Colesberg

Wolmade Self-catering Cottage

Wolmade is a self-catering and more budget friendly option, recommended for larger families and longer stays. This old homestead is comfortably furnished with beautiful country/farmhouse décor, and if you like you can still enjoy your meals at Mieliefontein only a few hundred meters away. The house has 8 bedrooms and can sleep 12 guests.

Stoffels Rus Self Catering Log Cabin

This charming log cabin is situated in the gardens of New Holme. It is a 2 bedroom cabin that sleeps 4 guests. The cabin is fully equipped for self catering, but you can still book your meals at the New Holme Guest House. The cabin is ideal for an extended Karoo visit. During a weekend wedding event this quaint cabin would feature as the honeymoon suit.

Karoo Gariep Tent

We have realized that there are an increasing number of people who would prefer a more rustic camp idea, especially when spending more time in the area. The Karoo Gariep Tent sleeps 4 guests in 2 separate tent compartments. The tent is well furnished with a double bed in the one compartment and 2 single beds in the other; the tent even features full floor carpeting; with the ablution facilities a mere 30 meters away! The tent is pitched in the New Holme Guest House garden and has some privacy from the rest of the lodge.

You can book meals at New Holme.
