My wife and I have just enjoyed every moment of our three nights chilling at Karoo-Estates in the foothills of the mountains outside Ladismith.
We lodged very comfortably in the rustic Farmhouse and did a great early morning game drive. The farm does not have the big five, but we saw giraffe , ostriches and varied antelope . The zebra were a bit elusive that day. Totally safe for walking.
The drives are worth it for the clean Karoo air and stunning geography and vista alone.
The fifth star belongs to Nicki, delightful host, guide and chef who, without being intrusive, simply adds the cherry to the top of your stay.
She is a multi-talented asset to the reserve.

For me, this has to be the most amazing place to stay in the world. We stayed in the Farmhouse, not the chalets but we had quick a look at them and they looked rustic with a modern twist, very nice. The best bits? Well, there are the views from all sides of the property, the pool to take a dip in, the wildlife in the vicinity and the outdoor shower was a real experience. The fire pit was extremely nice to sit at for the evening drinks and BBQ where the food was delicious. We saw plenty of wildlife, went on a night search for scorpions and also hunting for animal foot pints. Going on the game drive was a fantastic experience. I cannot recommend Karoo Escapes enough, trust me, you will not be disappointed.

We stayed 3 nights in this wonderfully rustic, but luxurious Herd house. We were spoilt with beds and bedding to die for and a fully equipped kitchen with everything you need. The early morning game drive did not only entertain us with giraffe, different antelope (of which there was a baby kudu calf), etc but the landscape was more beautiful than we ever imagined. Coming home every day to a cleaned kitchen and braai...thank you Jackie for this. And Vicki, we could not ask for a better host. We came there as tourists/clients...and left as friends. Hope to visit again soon.

This place does not seem to exist anymore. We booked and paid. The coordinates they mailed us were wrong and took us to Rooiberg Private game reserve, when we went in an alarm went off and security came. They hang up when you call the number provided on the booking and dont answer messages. Avoid this place at all costs. We are now stuck in a cheap BnB on our wedding aniversary as this was the only place that could help us on such short notice. We almost had to sleep in our car. DO NOT BOOK HERE.

Beautiful Spot , fantastic lodge/ farmhouse and cottages nestled in the mountains. Wake up to the birds and mist rising off the reservoir directly outside your door . Fabulous staff, very clean accommodation. Great Wildlife / game decor.
Laid back atmosphere .
Can’t be faulted . Perfect .

What a wonderful stay! Excellent accommodation with amazing views, well equipped facilities and friendly staff. Went for beautiful walks and got to see the giraffes, mountain zebras, koedoe’s and impalas on our game drive! Amazing place for a family get together.
Magnificent! Will definitely return!
