Set on one of the biggest working Ostrich farms in Southern Africa, this AfriCamps location is one to experience.

Located only a 10 minutes’ drive from Oudtshoorn center, in the middle of a pristine Karoo landscape with direct views on the Swartberg Mountains, AfriCamps Klein Karoo offers you the perfect backdrop to relax in the tranquil surroundings of this serene majestic farm.

Farmer Piet Schoeman is always proud to say that AfriCamps Klein Karoo is not an ostrich show farm but an authentic working ostrich farm where people can see and learn everything about this uniquely South African farming activity. 20.000 ostriches are kept mainly for the production and worldwide export of ostrich meat, leather and feathers. Besides the Ostriches a big portion of the 10.000 Ha farm has been made available to a wide variety of free-roaming indigenous game. ones.

Located just off the Garden Route, about an hour north from George, this farm makes the perfect mid-way stop between Cape Town and Port Elizabeth. Oudtshoorn has something for everyone in the family, explore the famous Cango Caves, take a drive through the scenic Swartberg Mountain pass, go on a Meerkat adventure or embrace local culture at one of the many festivals that run throughout the year.

AfriCamps tents consist of a spacious open plan lounge area with a comfortable couch and a fully equipped kitchen. The dining room area has a solid wooden table with enough seating for 5 people. For winter months the fireplace will be the perfect way to warm up the tent, bringing in an intimate setting for you and your love ones. Per night reservations can be accommodated.

Both bedrooms are furnished with a queen size bed and have their own private entrance which allows maximum privacy. One of the bedrooms also contains an extra single bunk bed, so the tent will comfortably sleep a family of 5. The tents are equipped with an air conditioning unit to keep you cool during those hot summer nights and a private bathroom with a hot shower cabin, washbasin and flushing toilet.

The private wooden deck at the front of the tent comes with comfortable wooden loungers from where you can overlook the peaceful natural surroundings of a working farm or beautiful estate.

Here you can unwind and appreciate a festive family breakfast while enjoying the beautiful weather and taking in the serene natural beauty of the South African landscape.
