Authentic Karoo Farm Accommodation



Karoo Life of a past era has been comfortably and tastefully resurrected in this beautiful original homestead.


BLOEMHOFKAROO is a historic home, once owned and loved by Professor Christiaan Barnard. The Homestead rests graciously in an oasis amongst kopjes on a working farm in the Malaria free, Northern Cape, Great Karoo. Located less than 5km from the N1, BloemhofKaroo provides an accessible farm-style getaway for both one-night stops, and longer stays.

Guests can experience the vastness of this large Private Game Reserve where more than 2000 head of antelope roam freely. Scenic game drives can be booked spontaneously.

BloemhofKaroo offers a fully catered country house experience. We are proud of our Farm Kitchen where local delicacies and wonderful treats are prepared and served with genteel Karoo hospitality.

What Our Guests Say...

“An absolute diamond in the Karoo. Experience true Karoo hospitality, beautiful sunrise, even welcomed by a fox in the road. Property is super clean and amenities are amazing, love the fact that you have separate dining rooms; old wooden floors give the house an authentic feel. Can’t wait to come back!”

What Our Guests Say...

“Completely wonderful. Bloemhof is a special place to embrace and experience this part of the Karoo. Endless hiking, running, or cycling across this unique environment. Pure air, no light pollution, amazing night skies; it’s restorative and inspiring. The staff at Bloemhof are amazing. The food is excellent. We’ve stayed twice and will return.”
