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.

This is a great place to relax. There is plenty to do. Sundowner drives and a shy 5 night drive. The night drive brings you close to the stars as well. The people are amazing and the food is excellent. Thank you very much for a great stay and I will se you soon.

What a lovely oasis in the vastness of the Karoo region of South Africa. Lovely friendly welcome and even some wildlife as we entered the farm gate! So wonderful to be able to stay away from any bright lights and noise of roads etc. Will definitely be back!

Fantastic, just what is needed to get out of JHB, Peace, quiet and solitude. Just love it. PC and his wife are just such lovely people, very easy to chat to, and very accommodating. Would love to just sit and chat to them for hours.

Lovely stay on the family's working farm, perfect halfway house for the long trip between Johannesburg and Cape Town. Comfortable rooms, quality linen (bed was a bit too firm for my liking) and spacious bathroom. Delicious and generous homecooked dinner and breakfast. Bonus if you're into birding as the farm has plenty to offer birdwatchers.

Perfect half way stop to Cape Town, friendly, homely and peaceful with scenery that goes on forever, a bonus of fantastic food too. If you want to learn about the area and experience the natural beauty of a "green karoo (Jan/Feb 2021) - this is your stop over. 1 night is not enough ....
