Avg per night

Grootwaterval is a sheep farm located in the Central Karoo region of South Africa, situated approximately 45 kilometers from the village of Prince Albert, at the base of the Swartberg Pass. The farm offers a variety of accommodation options for visitors.

The farm provides an opportunity for guests to experience the vast and tranquil environment of the Karoo, enjoying panoramic views of the veld and marveling at the wonders of a clear night sky. Guests can listen to the sounds of birds and keep an eye out for steenbuck and tortoises roaming the area.

Visitors are welcome to participate in farm activities, including tractor driving and working with the sheep and goats. The farm raises merino sheep, known for their fine-grade wool, which are sheared every ten months. Other activities available on the premises include hiking, mountain biking, bird watching, game viewing, and stargazing.

The charming village of Prince Albert offers the opportunity to stroll through its quiet streets and admire the well-preserved 19th-century houses with their lush gardens. The local tourist office is an excellent resource for assistance and information.

For those seeking an outdoor and nature-focused experience with solitude, the farm offers a lodge that is suitable for groups of friends or families. The spacious house is located seven kilometers from the main farmhouse and operates without electricity, relying instead on oil lamps for lighting. The main building features an open kitchen equipped with all necessary amenities, and a cozy fireplace in the living room provides warmth during the colder winter nights. The four bedrooms, two with double beds and two with single beds, are all en-suite. The house also includes a generous patio area with an outdoor fireplace, where guests may spot gemsbok, kudus, and springboks passing by.
