About Tamboershoek

Tamboershoek farm is surrounded by the Nuweveld Mountains, in the vastness of the Great Karoo. It is a place of ever changing and beautiful scenery where you will find peace and tranquillity with endless hiking possibilities.

Tamboershoek offers a two-bedroom self-catering chalet with two en-suite bathrooms. The chalet sleeps four guests on double or single beds. The chalet is fully equipped. Bedding and towels are provided. There is no electricity, but the chalet is supplied with gas kitchen appliances and oil lamps. There are no cell phone reception, no TV, no Internet - only a cozy fireplace and stunning views.

Tamboershoek is a working farm with the vibrant farm lifestyle of sheep and game. With farming comes the most unexpected surprises that only daily life on a Karoo farm can offer you. You may experience an unexpected snow storm or the most beautiful sunsets, a chilly, frosty morning in winter or a serene, dark and balmy night in summer with spectacular stars..

The farm is situated in the Northern Cape, directly on the border of the Western Cape, making it ideal for bird watchers to catch that elusive bird over the border.

As we cherish our heritage and acknowledge the extreme frailness of the Karoo ecosystem, no quad bikes or scramblers are allowed in the veld. Mountain bikes are welcome. There are no formal hiking trails, but the entire farm of 5000 ha is available for hiking.

Please note, Tamboershoek is accessible by 4X4 or high clearance vehicles unless otherwise advised. Please contact us for more information about the road as it can change throughout the year.

Dit was lekker stil en geen steurings / alles was gerieflik en die uitsigte in natuur was baie mooi.

Swimming pool was very welcome in the heat of December! Balcony safety can be improved for toddlers. House was very well equipped. True Karoo hospitality!

The directions on your web-site were very dubious. We never found the place. We could also not contact anyone, because there was no signal.

This was brilliant. Complete silence, nature at its best and no electricity. The kids had to go without ipads etc but instead got really involved in the amazing scenery and the stars.The cottage was superb - really comfortable, with awesome views and to be in a place like that in such a beautiful place was an experience I will never forget.

We had no problem getting to Tamboershoek from the north as long as you follow Gerda's instructions. And yes, one does feel safer traveling on that beautiful gravel road with a high clearance vehicule. When we arrived in the farm courtyard, we knew straight away we would be happy there. Gerda gave us a very warm welcome and so did the two friendly dogs. Our first impression was confirmed as we put our first steps on the wooden deck of the cottage with a most beautiful view! The cottage has been cleverly thought so as to be comfortable and pratical and is indeed decorated in a simple maner but...
