Little Karoo West


... is located in the East of the Cape area of the Western Cape in South Africa.

Despite being surrounded by some of the country's most visited areas, this section of the Cape is amazingly devoid of lodges and people tend to pass through without stopping. This is particularly true of the southern section, where the N2 highway cuts right through without suggesting any great reason to slow down.

North of the Langeberg Mountains however the R62 between Montagu and Oudtshoorn provides much more interest, notably the attractive and sleepy agriculatural towns of Ladismith and Calitzdorp providing a real taste of the Little Karoo.

Our favourite part however is the dirt road route that runs between Calitzdorp and Cango, an extremely scenic diversion which happens to also contains one of the best guest-farms in the region.

Groenfontein Retreat ... is a really authentic and characterful farm-stay, remotely situated in its own private valley at the foot of the Swartberg Mountains, a real oasis, ideal for hiking, river-swimming and general relaxation. One of our great favourites.
