Klein Karoo

               

True to the character and feel of the klein karoo, the mountain view is something to behold. And then there is the ever present Crocodile – a rock formation reflecting the sun’s daily movements and shadows. This quaint cottage offers undisturbed peace and tranquility, offering the best of the surrounding nature to see birds and klipspringer to the keen eye.


It is free standing and away from other guest accommodation, thus privately neat. Just like all the other getaways, it is totally off the road and traffic cannot be heard. It can also accommodate a larger group in conjunction with the other dwellings on our farm
The cottage is well suited for small children and pet owners alike because it is fenced with gates. Pet owners, please do bring your own sleeping and feeding accessories.


The Karoo Cottage has 2 bedrooms sleeping 5 comfortably. It is equipped as a self-catering getaway with gas and electricity. As of June, the newly installed fireplace makes any cold winter night so very cosy inside. An outdoor braai offers the choice of braaing under the bright stars or using the well equipped kitchen
The bathroom is partially open air offering you a private jaw dropping nature’s view whilst having a hot shower. We enclose the non-gladded parts during the winter months, still making it possible to see out yet experiencing the magic of an outdoor shower
Clean linen and fresh towels are provided, as well as hot water bottles for cold nights
Remember to always pack for 4 seasons in 1 day!

 


Tree House

             

An unusual escape and a completely different experience, this adult wooden treehouse is built in the boughs of an ancient sprawling red Karee tree (Rhus  Lancea). The dwelling is enveloped by the branches of a living tree, with lush vegetation and bush as a private garden
It is free standing and away from other guest accommodation on the farm, also making it naturally private. Just like all the other getaways, it is totally off the road and traffic cannot be heard. It can also accommodate a larger group in conjunction with the other dwellings on our farm
Equipped as a self-catering getaway with gas and electricity, the Tree House also has a newly installed enclosed fireplace making cold karoo winter nights warm inside. There is an outdoor braai area for starry summer nights and mountain views alike
It is most suitable to accommodates 4 to 5 adults and 1 to 2 youngsters very comfortably
Unfortunately dis-abled and heavy bodies might find it hard to maneuver and therefore not advised as a relaxing experience

The bushed-in and gladded open air bathroom allows you to have a hot shower as well as beautiful views of the mountain and bird life. Clean linen and fresh towels are provided, as well as hot water bottles for cold nights
It is pet-friendly, provided you please bring their own sleeping and feeding accessories
Please remember to pack for 4 seasons in 1 day!

 


Klipspringer

For those who drive very far to experience solitude and bush privacy, this is a get-away from it all. Located deep in its own private kloof, birders will love the closeness of nature and the mountains. It is also free standing and totally hidden in the bush and away from the other guest accommodation. Just like all the other getaways, it is totally off the road and traffic cannot be heard
The open plan sleeps 5 adults comfortably. It offers a well fitted kitchen with gas for cooking and hot showering in winter, paraffin lamps, and a solar fridge and lighting. A most tantalising partially open-air bathroom invigorates any tired soul. Clean linen and fresh towels awaits those who are fortunate to take time to linger here
Remember to always pack for 4 seasons in 1 day

To all the previous campers who were thoroughly disappointed by the donga next to the site…. we deeply apologise and can just say, never ever under our custodianship as long as we are on this farm! We will not rest until it is fully restored and as natural as the rest of Speekhout. It will all be cleaned up.  It goes beyond understanding that humans with a conscious can justify that…

 


Kudu Camping - A brand new site!

 

As of October 2017, we will make this totally indigenous campsite available to our guests. It is totally secluded and located on a part of the farm where nobody else ever comes. The views are to get out there for!
We believe that camping is a total privilege and should deserve the best of the outdoors in terms of seclusion, beauty and solitude. It will eventually replace the current camp site for all the right reasons
If you have come all this way to camp, we trust we have prepared one of the choicest spots on the farm for you in nature. May everything be just right for you to sit by the fire and breathe and camp
3 camping spots, separate and apart, each with their own kitchen and boma as well as open air shower, allows for the best of nature close and raw
