A convenient stopover on the N1 near Richmond. Clean comfortable rooms, friendly staff and good food. The farm looks really stunning after the rains but we couldn’t explore as much as we wanted due to gusting winds. Walking cycling and game viewing trails are available.

We stopped at Bloemhof Karoo en route to and from Cape Town. We were welcomed by the owners, Jenny and Jan, with tea and koeksisters. We stayed in Oxwagon which is a lovely spacious room that opens onto the wide farmhouse stoep. The food was delicious and there is a well stocked honesty bar with a good selection of South African wine. We had dinner and breakfast on the stoep enjoying the sounds of the Karoo. What we loved is that you are given the freedom of this 45 000 hectare farm. We did amazing walks, runs and drives! Instead of just being a necessary stopover on a long journey, it was a highlight of our trip!

Only an overnight stay but enjoyed every moment. The team welcomed us like family and made sure that our every need was taken into account. We had a true Karoo dinner - a real treat. All the special touches in the guest house and the rich history of the farm makes this a true gem

I have wanted to visit Bloemhof Karoo for years and at last had the opportunity on my recent road trip to Cape Town. The property consists of a lovely old Karoo homestead situated on 15,000 hectares of land with a huge variety of game. Our accommodation was very comfortable, meals traditional and delicious and the staff were wonderful. A great experience

the most welcoming comfortable delicious gorgeous place to stay. I arrived just before a glorious Karoo sunset and a cold wind was blowing. but a fire had been lit for me and my bedroom had an electric blanket and the shower was hot and the towels thirsty .. a glass of red wine fromm the honesty bar and another with a delicious Karoo lamb supper -- salad starter -- and with roast potatoes and veggies plus mint sace and gravy followed by a homemade lemon cheesecake ('ons verkies dat ons gaste hier uitrol' said Yolande)... I'd been worried about my potplants but, no problem, they were installed in the sunroom and given some water and were all toasty (or at least far from frozen) when I collected them in the chilly Karoo sunrise and set off on my way. it's a superb place, and I highly recommend making a plan to stay longer than a night. huge black star-studded skies, 4.5km off the N1 so no truck noise or lights, stupendous food plus -- all sorts of activities like game drives which I didn't investigate but wish I had. Or you could just sit on the stoep and let the Karoo sink in. or in front of the fire if it's cold...
