We spend one night in a room at "Le petit Karoo". We were initially supposed to stay in a Tent but the weather was wet and cold, so Pascal kindly offer to move us to a more traditional room (with heated matress). The room was well appointed and the bathroom even had a jacuzzi. The only downside will be that... More

This was the best stay I had in 3 weeks of travelling through South Africa. I loved the serenity, nature, peace up there. We were welcome and cared for, and the dogs were just making up for missing my own dog! The bed was comfortable and despite cool weather during the nights we kept warm. Breakfast is served any way...

This is a firm favourite of mine. I have been here many times. This is a not a 5 star luxury destination but it is luxurious in terms of space, views and experience. Pascal, the French owner, is a gregarious host, ready to knock you up a filling meal at a moments notice. I prefer the tent decks rather than... More

We stayed one night here and were very impressed! Pasquale the owner is charming and makes you feel very much at home! The tents are very comfortable and large, with a full size bed and quilts and lovely soft pillows. Sleeping was no problem it was so comfortable. I was dead set sure to have a spa bath but our...

Stopped in Oudtshoorn for one night, what a lovely place that happened to be recommended from someone in town. We stayed in one of the tents, which overlooked the mountain/valley. The tent was cozy and clean, and we had a great little breakfast on the deck area in the morning, such amazing views. Really enjoyed our stay, the owner Pascal... More

We (2 couples) stood there for only one night. The views were really great, but the whole place seemed to be not too well kept. The pretty small tents with their nice spa baths partly needed quite some renovation. The owner obviously took over the place from whomever and now is obviously not willing to spend some money to keep... More

Located on top of a hill with a view of 50 shades of green...quiet...nature! Lovely welcome from the owner and his dogs :-). Decided to have supper on our deck - was delicious. One night out of civilization was exactly what we needed to chill and feel a little bit of what the initial voortrekkers felt.

We spent a night in Le petit Karoo Ranch after a long day of driving. What a good place, the owner is extremely nice, we had some troubles on the road and arrived much later than expected, without having had the time to have dinner, he went into the trouble of preparing a last minut meal for us which was...

I was travelling around the country and I end up in Oudshoorn at Le Petit Karoo Ranch with a friend of mine. We have been gladly surprised by the beautifull landscape on top of a colin, the size of the room (4 people can sleep there), the nice design and confort and its huge bathroom and balneo bath (great to...

Firstly would like to say that yes the views are stunning, if you want to stay with a room with a view then fine. Arrived for two nights stayed in a apartment at front these were basic and as far as the jacuzzie is concerned if you can call it that. Only window in bathroom was a little 2' x... More
