BloemhofKaroo is truly a special place in our country, with an abundance of flora and fauna to be seen if one can just slow down and take a little time.
As Eve Palmer wrote….”At first encounter the Karoo may seem arid, desolate and unforgiving, but to those who know it, it is a land of secret beauty and infinite variety”.
We invite you also to visit and experience what this great Karoo has to offer.
We have been stricken and then blessed to have survived droughts, to have seen amazing resurgence of vegetation…indeed a landscape of harshness and delight.
The Farm really has something to offer all ages; from simple farmyard pleasures to experiencing the vast expanse before one’s eyes.
Our family feel so fortunate to have been custodians of this farm for the past 23 years.
We are all deeply attached to this incredible lesser known part of South Africa, and would love to share it with you.
Relaxing hours of “Stoepsit”…. watching sunrise with a coffee in hand, taking in the vast expanse, the quietness, farm sounds.
Amazing sunsets, sundowners always memorable.
Peruse our Collectors’ library of books on the Boer War, and many fascinating books on the greater Karoo.
The Milky Way can be seen in the Karoo like few other places in South Africa, possibly on earth. Use an App to identify stars as they appear.
Who doesn’t love a Picnic with a view.
Picnic basket for 4 at R720, excl drinks.
A bread baking demonstration will give you a chance to try your hand at kneading; learn the Karoo art of making oven koekies, loaves, roosterkoek, vetkoek.
