Close to the Karoo town of Graaff-Reinet is the Van der Walt's Hoek farm where you can spend some time breaking away from the everyday hustle-and-bustle. The main lodging on the farm is called the "Waenhuis" which consists of a room with multiple single beds and a kitchen / lounge area, separated from the bedroom by a wall divider. There are also 2 additional rooms with en-suite bathrooms available if you would like some privacy. The main house as well as the rooms are relatively spacious so you won't feel cramped, and the entire area is decorated in a classic Karoo hunting style. Outside you also have a covered patio with a braai, a wood-fired pizza oven and a Boma (fire-pit) with a beautiful view of the dam and mountains right across from it. The Boma is quite big, so you can spend the evenings sharing stories around a big fire. The area surrounding the farm is beautiful and there is a lot of bird and animal life around. Apart from your standard antelope species like Kudus and Klipspringers, we were fortunate enough to see some rarer animals as well including a bat-eared fox, an anteater and meerkats. If you love the outdoors this is perfect for you as there are many activities such as hiking and cycling routes, as well as mountain climbing and bird watching just to name a few. The owner, Herman, is also friendly and very knowledge about the region. This farm definitely gives you a glimpse of what the beautiful Camdeboo region has to offer.
