The Karoo Gariep conservancy (10,000 ha) for the Karoo Hippo is between Colesberg and Hanover. We are 8 km of the N1 highway and perfectly between Cape Town and Johannesburg, also halfway between Upington (Kalahari) and PE (Garden Route); this make us the perfect halfway break in South Africa. We pay special attention to nature and the outdoors. You can explore the central Karoo using us as a basis, we have the Sea Caw Vally Meander which connects New Bethesda to Hanover and Colesberg by dirt road. These roads can be enjoyed by car as well as on mountain bike. Tourist friendly establishments are listed and work together in a communal afford. Our activities include early morning birding drives, horse riding, stargazing from our star deck, hippo drives, Koi etchings, mountain bike trails and more. There are three lodges on the conservancy to choose from. Mieliefontein, with Ian and Elma, New Holme with P.C. and Marisca are our self catering lodge Wolmado (managed by Elma) New Holme and Mieliefontein are 4 star and a pleasure to stay in. We offer good "Plaas kos" 3 course dinners. The meals are an experience and are recommended. We promote a 2 to 3 night stay to get a more complete experience of our beautiful Karoo.

We stayed at New Holme and were absolutely blown away by the incredible hospitality we received. New holme itself is stunning with so much to do and see! The rooms were beautiful and cosy with all the necessary amenities. We thoughly enjoyed the game drive and viewing the Hippo. The food was exceptional and far exceeded our expectations. Our only regret was that we didn't spend more time at New Holme! Thank you for an incredible stay! We are looking forward to our next trip to New Holme.

Our stay at New Holme in April was exactly what we hoped, a warm, traditional South African welcome to a beautiful karoo farm with amazing food! The accommodation was very clean and comfortable and we enjoyed the activities such as kayaking, sundowners at the hippo pool and a night drive to see the shy 5. There was a group of 11 of us and every single person left with their hearts and stomachs full! :) We will definitely return one day, thank you to PC and Marisca for the wonderful hospitality.

Had a special experience with Karoo birding and spotting the Aardvark and Aardwolf on one night drive. Our reception was warm and efficient, food was excellent and the timber cabin was spacious and well equipped.

Dirt road was a challenge because of wet conditions and mud. Floors in cabin were dusty, waste bin on porch not emptied and smelly, fresh milk in fridge frozen solid, cushions on porch soiled, some maintenance required as both toilets in cabin leaking and water damage to wooden floors around toilets noticeable, bathroom sliding door sticking and noisy. Garden requires some attention. Dinner exceptional, breakfast very good. Conservation efforts commendable.
