Garingboom, found on the web but later recommended to us by friends, was a great stay, the dinner excellent and Riette's enthusiasm and knowledge of birds and insects all added to a memorable overnight stay. We enjoyed watching the ground squirrels in the peaceful quiet environment.

What a lovely owner run couple that welcomed us and served great dinner and breakfast. Very attentive. Lovely rooms with all you need and a little patio. Tranquil farm environment with beautiful gardens. Sit and take it all in and read for a while. The owners have an amazing insight into they wildlife, insects and birds on the farm and are avid photographers of it all.

Stayed: March 2017, travelled with family

We stay at Garingboom on a recent trip down to the Cape. What a beautiful place. Cottages, although small are well equipped, clean and comfortable. The hosts are very hands on and welcomming. The best roast lamb and traditional farm veggies I have ever tasted. Will definitely be back.

Fantastic overnight stop for the N1. Garingboom farm has very friendly owners, cosy cottages and is in a beautiful setting. The home cooked karoo lamb for dinner was delicious !!! Thank you for an excellent stay.

We have visited Garingboom on two occasions and this time it was really hard to leave after our 3-day stay! The rooms are delightful, well-equipped, and with views onto green fields and faraway "vlaktes". The ponds in front of the cottages attract large numbers of birds and dragonflies, subjects on which Riette is very knowledgeable. She also takes birders out into the veld to find elusive Larks and Coursers. Although one can self cater, it would be foolish not to book dinner and sit down with Jan and Riette for some of her delicious lamb. A real gem that warrants more than a quick stopover.
