Higher Karoo: Klein Riviertjie Cottage

  • 4 guests
  • 2 bedrooms
  • 1 bathroom

The deeper you head into the Karoo, the more you get a true feeling for this fabled, soulful region. At the end of a long gravel road, seemingly in the middle of nowhere, is a farm with a pair of off-grid, rustic-luxe, two-bedroom cottages harking back to a simpler time.

Furnished with an artist’s eye and echoing the muted natural shades of the landscape, the heirloom-filled rooms will make you feel like you’ve stepped into a still-life painting. Your hot water comes from a wood-fired ‘donkey’ boiler, you’ll make meals on a 1950s gas stove (using Le Creuset pots), you’ll spend hours on the stoep gazing into the distance and, come bedtime, you’ll nestle into cosy feather duvets and wake up to witness the karoo sunrise.
