“Time and again”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

A truly special place that will rejuvinate your spirit. Every time we leave, we are simultaneously planning our next trip back. The beautifully appointed cottages are matched by the warm hospitality of your hosts. Great walks during the day and spectacular night skies. The outdoor fireplaces are a favourite of mine, as is a dip in the pool on those Klein Karoo summer days.

I have been a regular a Wolverfontein for a very long time. There is nothing more grounding than the dry Klein Karoo and the beauty of the night sky... Doing lots of nothing is very good for the soul, watching the stars even more so. And if you have a bit of energy before the heat is full on, take a walk up the koppie, it is well worth it - if only to say that you were a little active that day!

An most wonderful place to get away from the City. Peaceful, Magical, fulfilling, are just some of the many words to describe this beautiful place.

Thank you to the owners Ashley and Andre for special touch.

I have visited South Africa a few times and I always include a stay at Wolverfontein in the Klein Karoo. The location and accommodation are wonderful and Andre & Ashley are incredible hosts. If you are travelling through this beautiful area a stopover here is recommended or if you would like a peaceful break away with a group of friends Wolverfontein is highly recommended as one cottage sleeps eight and the other cottage sleeps two.

What a magic place. We'll keep coming back... for the beauty of the region, super friendly hosts, and homely accommodation. Loved night walks up the koppie at fullmoon! Stay for more than a quick weekend.
