Heron House is situated in Venterstad and invites you to enjoy its typical Karoo ambience. With high ceilings, Oregon floors and spacious rooms, we offer comfortable and convenient accommodation in a relaxed atmosphere.

Unlike Oviston and Gariep Village, the temporary prefab asbestos houses that were put up in Venterstad during the construction of the dam and tunnel, have all been removed, so there is no danger of exposure to airborne asbestos.

The house has a lounge area with DStv easy view channels and a music system. Outside is a built-in braai and off street secure parking. Relax at Heron House around the braai while enjoying the sight of hundreds of kestrels migrating from Europe every year in summer. At night you will be treated to the open sky full of stars and the sounds of the country night-life. We welcome well-behaved pets in our fully enclosed garden by prior arrangement.

Please note that we need a minimum of 48 hours notice for all bookings.

Venterstad is more than just an overnight stop, it is a base from which to explore the little-known wonders of the Bo-Karoo. Visit the Oviston Nature Reserve and the Gariep Dam while taking a tour of the dam wall. Observe and enjoy a large variety of birds, go river rafting down the Orange River or horse-back riding along its banks. Steep yourself in history and visit the various Boer War sites, including a drive over historical bridges spanning the mighty Orange River.

The Morning Glory Cottages are located between the Gariep Dam and Venterstad in the Eastern Cape. The cottages are perfectly situated, 600 km from Johannesburg and 800 km from Cape Town on the R58 and next to Lake Gariep, the largest inland water mass in South Africa.

The cottages form part of the old family farm of Gelykfontein, which is a well-known race horse stud farm that was established in 1935 and the van der Walts are the fourth generation of the van der Walt family to run the farm. Gelykfontein is a working farm also known for its Nguni cattle, Rubicon merinos, indigenous veld goats, and game. Enjoy peace and tranquility, glorious sunsets, clean drinking water, and stars so clear they can only be found in the Karoo. This is the place where the water meets the sky.

We also offer conference facilities for small groups, as well as facilities for team building weekends, field walks, bird watching, game drives, 4x4 routes and game drives to the adjacent Oviston Nature Reserve. We are just 9 km from the nearest shore of the great Lake Gariep with its shoreline of 435 km and there are numerous activities in the vicinity including power boating, sailing, waterskiing, and bait fishing. We also have hand-reared farm animals such as kids and lambs, which is a special treat for children to watch at feeding time.

Accommodation is offered in the form of two cottages which have been divided up into separate units, each with its own entrance. Each unit is fully equipped with linen, towels, ceiling fans, heaters, electric blankets, tea and coffee-making facilities, microwaves, and fridges.

In addition, we offer true Karoo Cuisine including Karoo lamb at its best, served in the friendly atmosphere of our dining room, or you can enjoy a braai in the lapa next to the splash pool. You can also have your own braai, and braai packs are available by prior arrangement. A hearty farm breakfast is also served either in the dining room or on the patio.

Each unit is fully equipped with linen, bath towels (please bring your own towels for swimming), roof fans, heaters, electric blankets, coffee/tea station, microwave and a fridge.

A warm welcome awaits you at Morning Glory Cottages. We cater from home from home accommodation with personal care as old-fashioned hospitality is what makes our guest's stay at Morning Glory special.

Gannabos Guest Lodge is situated in the beautiful Gariep Eco Reserve, offering three guest units. This is a 4000 ha eco-tourism venture managed on holistic principles, containing fields of livestock and lucerne irrigation.

There is a communal unit for meals and watching TV, set apart from the three guest units. The units have a charming and rustic ambience based on an old Karoo mud-house design, with an emphasis on natural development and minimal interference of vegetation.

Our reserve is a majestic sanctuary for Adrica's wildlife, including sable, roan, buffalo, Livingston eland, tsessebe, waterbuck, letchwe, nyala, gemsbuck and all the varieties of springbuck. We also provide game drives and quad bikes.

This is open-sky country with the whirr of windmills and the odd Nguni cow, the only mar on a horizon devoid of buildings. You will see blue skies, graceful plains spreading as far as the eye can see and distant hills.
