The space
Karoo Ridge Conservancy - A 5 000 ha working farm with indigenous Nguni and Watusi cattle run along side game. We have re-introduced African plains game including zebra, black wildebeest, springbuck, gemsbuck and sable. We are concerned about our natural resources available to us and use ecologically sound methods in our farming practices. We have monitoring programmes in place for our veld condition to ensure that all utilization is sustainable

Guest access
All bookings for Karoo Ridge Eco-lodge are exclusive and give you access to a
4-bed roomed lodging which has been built as a home. Two of the bedrooms have en-suite bathrooms and the other two share a bathroom. The central area is made up of an open plan kitchen (fully equipped), dining room and lounge area which opens up onto a big veranda for plenty of outside living. There is a braai/barbecue facility. There is no fenced in garden and the accommodation opens up onto the veld. The cottage runs on gas and solar energy. Guests can go on recommended walks or hikes or alternatively can explore at their own leisure through the veld.
Local guests inquire for rates and last minute specials.

Our minimal requirement is 2 guests for 2 nights or 4-8 guests for a single night.
We can offer a fully catered service should you wish. This needs to be organized 2 weeks prior to your visit.

During your stay
We like to have an estimated time of arrival so that we can make sure that we are available to meet you and show you to your accommodation. The main farm house is 1km from the Eco-lodge so is far away enough for your privacy but close enough should you need us. We are happy to recommend nice walks or areas to explore. You are welcome to come and get involved with every day farming too. Staff are available to service the Eco-lodge daily should you wish.
