Steynskraal Guest Farm: Die Skooltjie

  • 4 guests
  • 1 bedroom
  • 1 bathroom

Arid and expansive, the Great Karoo is South Africa’s version of The Outback – a soulful space of quiet contemplation and the ultimate escape from life’s hustle and bustle. And in the heart of this soulful space lies Steynskraal Gasteplaas, a peaceful oasis offering both old-world luxury and modern hospitality.

The farmstead occupies an area that has served as a resting place for weary travellers for hundreds of years, and there are three delightful self-catering units surrounded by spectacular views. Die Skooltjie is a quaint, charming one-bedroom cottage that sleeps 2 adults and 2 kids (thanks to a double daybed in the living room). There’s a splash pool on the private back porch for relief from the hot Karoo sun, as well as a gorgeous garden and sheltered braai area.
