About Cape Karoo Guesthouse

This elegant, fascinating architectural home was build by Sir Baker in 1902. Experience the peace and tranquillity of this luxurious guesthouse against a backdrop of the Nieuwveld Mountains. Cape Karoo Guesthouse is perfectly situated between Johannesburg and Cape Town/George. It has a romantic and unique sense of style in the heart of the Great-Karoo.

We offer four luxurious and spacious en-suite rooms, equipped with 100% cotton bedlinen, anti-allergenic duvets and pillows, bar fridges, complimentary tea and coffee, DStv, air-conditioning, insect repellents, hairdryers, complimentary toiletries and heated blankets. Each room has its own entrance. Rooms lead out to a refreshing country atmosphere in the enchanted garden full of bird life with the most amazing mountain views under the breathtaking stars.

On request a full English and Continental breakfast can be served. For dinner we have “braai” packs available on request for those who want to enjoy the famous organic super A-grade karoo lamb chops and beef sausage.



Our guest house is near a grass golf course, and the Karoo National Park - with lovely scenic routes and more than 6000 fauna & flora species. There are also two endangered species, the Riverine Rabbit and the Black Rhinoceros, which have been successfully resettled. The park is home to five tortoise species, the most in any conservation area in the world. The park also has challenging 4x4 routes into the mountains, walking and fossil trials.

We are near the N1, but guests can only hear the sounds of nature. We are approximately 10 km away from the airport and within the vicinity of the Chris Barnard Museum. Visit 400 year old engravings from the herb “guru” king in Nelspoort, Malteno Pass and the indescribable Meiringspoort.

Secure off-street parking is available behind locked gates. Enjoy warm hospitality and excellent service. We speak English, Afrikaans and Zulu. Smoking is permitted in the garden area and on the veranda. We are pet and child friendly. Cape Karoo Guesthouse is a member of the Beaufort West Tourism Bureau.

                                              They didn't offer a to-go bag as an alternative to missing breakfast due to an early departure.

                                              THE ACCOMMODATION WAS COMFORTABLE & WELL APPOINTED BUT THE AIRCONDITIONING WAS NOT FUNCTIONING WELL ENOUGH - A MAJOR DISAPPOINTMENT . IT IS AN OFTEN OVERLOOKED FACTOR & ABSOLUTELY CRITICAL TO A RESTFUL NIGHT'S SLEEP IN 35 DEGREE HEAT
