We arrived in Oudtshoorn late in the afternoon and after trying to book somewhere to stay Pascal answered and managed to provide us with two rooms.
Beautiful is the only way to describe the view from our rooms, Pascal is a great and welcoming host who directed us to where we could have dinner. Breakfast was served on the "stoep" by such friendly and helpful staff.
Wonderful night spent here, and we would definitely stay here again!

We stayed here for one night and chose Le Petit Karoo for its location close to the Cango Caves and Cango Animal Farm. We had originally booked the luxury tent but as it was very breezy Pascal showed us the solid room option, which still had amazing views from the private verandah. We had read about the steep drive up to there but the hire car managed fine and the views from the top were worth it. Pascal was a charming host and cooked us a delicious French themed three course dinner with delicious kudu steaks for mains, washed down with good red wine. After a good night's sleep in a comfy bed, he prepared a good breakfast served to us on the verandah. We would definitely recommend staying here - there are a few minor things that could be improved but nothing that would stop me recommending a lovely welcoming place to stay in a great location.

The perfect place to stay if you want to explore the many activities in this part of the world and come back to a beautifully cooked meal served on your own balcony overlooking the small village against the stunning backdrop of the mountains. it was extremely hot, but the room was nice and cool.

We spent there one night in January 2012 and we will never forget that experience! Few tents completely surrounded by the bush let you feel the nature. But you're just few km away from Oudtshoorn on one side and the Cango Caves on the other side. The owner and staff are all very friendly and they'll make your stay relaxing and really agreable. In the camp there is also a small swimming pool were you can relax after a visiting day in the surroundings or after a day of trip, as it was our case. Prices absolutely client-freindly and! Silence and relax assured!

We stayed here for a night in the tent accommodation. It was a beautiful place with views of the mountains and surrounding terrain. The property itself was charming; with horses, birds, beautiful natural landscape, and an covered open-air communal area to brai or enjoy a glass of wine. There was also a nice little swimming pool. We loved our outdoor hot tub on our back deck. We also had breakfast on our front patio the next morning while enjoying a majestic panoramic view of the surrounding mountains. This ranch is a quick drive to the Cango Caves and the Wildlife Ranch, which are both worth seeing if you are in the area!

Definitely a place to come back. The breathtaking views, the kind staff and the peace in that place were just great. Plus they are situated in a very strategic position in the area. If they cook, the food is delicious.

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 the room hadn't been prepared to received guest and laked a little bit of cleanliness, but nothing major, we were still able to enjoy the place.

There is a very nice common area with a terrace overlooking the countryside, which is very nice when the sun shows.

We had the chance to have dinner at the accomodation and Pascal cooked for us a great meal, and we had the opportunity to learn more about him and South Africa.

Le petit Karoo is a great place to stay if you are looking for an affordable and confortable accomodation. The tents seemed amazing and the dinner is a good idea if you don't want to drive to town.
