Ou Skool Guest House was renovated in 2008, from a block of flats which used to be an old primary school and closed down in the early seventies due to a lack of children and funding. Ou Skool Guesthouse is a convenient stop over or holiday base for tourists, nature lovers, businessmen and travellers alike on the route to the Kalahari, Augrabies Falls, Riemvasmaak, Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park and the West Coast. Set amongst luscious vineyards in the heart of the Northern Cape, our stylish decorated establishment guarantees a comfortable stay. Ou Skool Guest House is situated just 5km outside of Keimoes en route to Kenhardt.

Our stay at Ou Skool Guest House met and exceeded our expectations. The rooms are spacious and the food, both for dinner and breakfast, was delicious and well prepared. The beds were comfortable and the air conditioning ensured that we slept very well in spite of the winter temperatures outside.

We stayed for two separate nights at the Ou Skool while travelling to the west coast and back. The rooms are well equipped and nicely decorated. We were three families so I saw a couple of the rooms and they were all of a high standard. The setting is marvellous with vines growing around the spacious garden. We catered for ourselves in the evenings and were well-provided with everything we needed. Very hospitable. And there's a friendly dog and cat if you miss your furry friends (but they're not a nuisance if you don't love animals). The breakfast fruit, cereal, etc. was lovely but I would have liked a choice for the cooked breakfast which was bacon, wors and egg - all very tasty but some baked beans, tomato or mushrooms are also nice for variety! (Admittedly, it was New Year's Day so there may have been some supply constraints.) All in all, a wonderful place to stay.

Many thanks for the review! We have a set breakfast menu, but we are more than willing to serve guests if they require something different for variety. With your next visit to ou skool awaits a free breakfast for two, many thanks for the positive advice. Kind regards gabi ou skool

Our second stay at the Ou Skool was just as wonderful as the first. We find Ou Skool a convenient stop over for adventures in the Northern Cape. The rooms are very comfortable with coffee, tea and rusks provided. Aircon, adapters and mozzie killer are available for a restful night. There are also a few campsites in the peaceful garden area so there is something for everyone. We meet up with family here and enjoy chatting and braaing in the garden. Gabi is a great host and really made us feel at home.

Review from Stephanie Grasso
This place was amazing!! My family and I went there to stay overnight and we were very pleased at what they had to offer. Aunt Gabi was very nice (the owner) she made the most amazing salads and her dog was very sweet. I will defiantly go back there. It was very clean too and had lovely rooms. I was extremely happy and to be honest the best experience on the way kgalagadi. RECCOMENDED highly 🧡🧡🧡
Thank youuu

The room was spacious and very comfortable. The guest house is situated among grape vineyards in a quiet environment. Gabi was a fantastic host and very helpful. Breakfast and dinner is available but I had unfortunately already made other arrangement.

Ou Skool is a beautiful, neat and tidy guesthouse that is conveniently situated next to the main road. The rooms are very comfortable and they are pet friendly, which was a huge bonus for me because I always travel with my 2 Scotties. Their service is top-notch!

A very unique property where we were made to feel most welcome. Great Dinner, Awesome Breakfast and generally a Tremendous Stay. Rooms are well appointed and look like they have just been renovated. To top it all we had an amazing lightning filled storm in the evening!!
