Too many times you drive through a town in South Africa without knowing anything about the town. You see churches, hotels, memorials, etc. But do you really ever know anything about these places except for what little information is scratched into a little plate that forms part of a place with such a rich history. We passed through Springbok and stayed the night at Elkoweru Guest House on our way down to Cape Town and oh my, was this a treat! We had the warmest welcome from the owner, Konrad, whom we just met upon arrival. He is a fellow karateka of my best friend/boyfriend/travel buddy's father. We had the best 14 hours in Springbok. From dinner to a good night's rest to a delicious breakfast to a quick drive through and around Springbok. We have learned so much from Konrad. He is such a pleasant host with the world's knowledge about Springbok, the surrounding area and the history that created this jewel in the Northern Cape. It isn't the Nawakwa-flowers that makes this place special. It obviously contributes, but there is so much more to this little town and Konrad knows it all. If you ever do pass through Springbok, Elkoweru is an absolute treat and most definitely the place to stay!

A very comfortable night spent at Elkoweru after a long day on the road. Great welcome by the staff who guided us to our accom and ensured we were settled and had everything we needed for the night. A large family room was allocated and beds were very comfortable. It was also fitted with a nice bar sized fridge. A large bathroom en-suite with a great shower and hot water. The accom we had was part of the annex that had a large area shared by a few rooms that included a lounge and area to do self catering. This was complete with a kettle and microwave. Although the parking for this annex is not enclosed we were able to park inside the main complex and was very safe and easily accessed. Will definitely use the accom again when passing through Springbok. Many thnaks to management and staff.

I recently stayed in Springbok for a month, and met with Konrad the owner at His gym, at a stage I needed some laundry washed, Konrad went out of His way to accommodate me though I did not stay at His guesthouse. My laundry were done very professionally and neat. He does have excellent guesthouse and well equipped gym. I can really anytime recommend this guesthouse as the Owner and His assistant are very helpfull and always friendly.

Elkoweru is a family Guest house run and managed by the energetic Konrad.It offers a variety of rooms at reasonable prices. Those I saw were clean, comfortable and well furnished. The breakfasts are tasty and cooked to your specification. But Elkoweru's greatest asset is its staff, always friendly, cheerful and obliging with Konrad himself setting the style and standard. He accommodated my difficult times of arrival and departure (dictated by the Intercape bus schedules) with great good humour and could not have been more helpful despite the many and various other demands on his time. Springbok is an interesting small town and makes the best base for a visit to the Richtersveld World Heritage site. If I am ever here again I know that I will be able to enjoy another stay at Elkoweru.

We looked for accomodation near the Springbok Hospital after my girlfriend got sick. The host Konrad was very friendly and comprehensive. He learned us a lot about RSA and Namaqualand. He can also organise tours in the area. The rooms are spacious, clean and comfortable. This place is the perfect base and Konrad is the perfect host for a stay in Namaqualand! Tip : it is beautiful, also out of the flowers season!
