Set on one of the biggest working ostrich farms in Southern Africa, this AfriCamps location is one to experience the authentic Karoo. With 12 luxury boutique camping tents positioned around a big water dam that is surrounded by game like zebra, springbok, blue wildebeest, kudu, impala, eland, waterbuck and njala, this charming farm is sure to steal your heart. Located only a 10 minutes’ drive from the centre of Oudtshoorn this camp has a panoramic views of the udulating landscape and majestic Swartberg mountains. AfriCamps Klein Karoo offers you the perfect space to relax in the tranquil surroundings of this serene farm.
Farmer Piet Schoeman is always proud to say that AfriCamps Klein Karoo is not only an ostrich show farm but an authentic working ostrich farm where people can see and learn everything about this uniquely South African farming activity. 20 000 ostriches are kept mainly for the production and worldwide export of ostrich meat, leather and feathers. Besides the ostriches a big portion of the 10 000 Ha farm has been made available to a wide variety of free-roaming indigenous game. This is that part of the farm where you will find our tents and the wildlife here just forms another highlight to your experience.
Located just off the Garden Route, about an hour north of George, this farm makes the perfect mid-way stop between Cape Town and Port Elizabeth. Oudtshoorn has something for everyone in the family, explore the famous Cango Caves, take a drive through the scenic Swartberg Mountain pass, go on a Meerkat adventure or embrace local culture at one of the many festivals that run throughout the year. Take a stroll through the lively center of this friendly town to experience its many nice restaurants, off-the-grid farmstalls and coffee shops.
There is a minimum of two nights stay required. Tents can sleep up to five guests, but the advertised rates are based on a per-person basis for two people per night.
