The “Karoo Klipkraal”

Together with the farm this unique kraal was built in the late 1800s. The stonewall forms the sides of the new “Karoo Klipkraal” lapa. The karoo agave aloe “garingbome” was used to further shield you against the elements and creating a cozy atmosphere. This klipkraal invites you into a pure Karoo night experience. Enjoy a bond fire and chat with loved ones and friends until late, with the stars shining bright into the night.

This is the ideal social area for couples or group functions “kuierplek”.

Contact us if you are planning a function and would like to use the “Karoo klipkraal”.
