At Ganora we offer visitors a special South African experience. The history of Ganora spans 270 million years, from fossil beds of mammal-like reptiles to evidence of bushman paintings and etchings as well as Anglo Boer War engravings. Additionally a tour of our wool shed offers a glimpse into farm life today.
The charming cottage is situated on the farm approximately 7 km from Nieu Bethesda and the famous Owl House. The cottage is self-contained and guests can choose to self cater, have meals on the farm, or we can make reservations at a cosy restaurant in Nieu Bethesda. The Khoisan Cottage is ideal for people seeking an active and hospitable stay on a working sheep farm, or those wishing to relax and unwind in the peace and tranquility of Karoo simplicity.
We offer a range of activities including birdwatching, mountain biking, 4x4 trails, hiking and mountain climbing, and guided tours to bushman paintings and artefacts, as well as fossil walks.
