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...

My family of 4 had a fantastic experience spending the night at Bloemhof Karoo. Jenny and her team were attentive and made us feel very special. The location is close to the N1 but far enough away that you cant see / hear traffic. The homestead is very well kept and has a real feel of the essential Karoo farm experience. The dinner and breakfast were both lovely.

Stopped over for 2 nights on our way back to Joburg from Cape Town. The owner Jenny Pickard, and the staff made our stay a really memorable one. Jenny's generosity regarding a number of aspects really touched us - its something we'll never forget. And the staff went the extra mile throughout our stay. Nothing was too much trouble. It's hard to capture the essence of Bloemhof Karoo - we loved the farmhouse and the wonderful walks that were available, also just the quietness of the Karoo, and amazing night sky. We would highly recommend a longer than a one-night stay if you can, to enjoy all there is on offer. It's a place we'll come back to.

On our way to a due diligence, we spent a few days at Bloemhof farm and explored their awesome trails. Gail, VIcky and Margaret fed us like kings, and the cycling is absolutely awesome. There are really good rides for all skills, ranging from relatively flat gravel farm roads to rough steep 4x4 routes to keep a cyclist honest. Views are spectacular and game viewing is plentyful. There are at least 3 solid rides, but you can explore much more across the farm. We literally cycled the whole day twice. Bloemhof is so comfortable, so we had an awesome stay. Plenty of walking for non-cyclists and you can drive to spots and walk from there. You feel as if the farm is yours. Thanks to Jenny and your team.
