Enjoy comfort and culture at Ganora Guest Farm

BY JESICA SLABBERT - MAY 21, 2018

Tucked away a mere 7km from Nieu Bethesda in the Karoo, is the 3-star accommodation of Ganora Guest Farm. This converted sheep farm accommodation is perfect for visitors wanting to enjoy the open Karoo.

The farmstead and guest cottages are nestled deep in the slopes of a depression carved into the bedrock by ancient rivers in pre-historic times.

The owners of the farm, Jan-Peet and Hester, are part of a game rehabilitation programme, which allows visitors to interact with orphaned game that have made the farm their home.

There is also has a museum with an extensive fossil collection, including rare examples found nowhere else in the country. It boasts various sites with well-preserved rock paintings and engravings.

The Ganora Guest Farm also hosts art and photography courses for guests from time to time.

For stays, Ganora Guest Farm offers 3-Star accommodation with various options. Groups of up to 26 persons can be accommodated in B&B rooms. All the rooms are converted from old working buildings used by the sheep farm.

All the rooms are splendidly decorated and completely comfortable – you would never believe it used to be an old engine room or chicken shed.

A pool is also available for those scorching days when you just need to cool down and relax. For those who enjoy fun outdoor activities, you can also go on a marked hiking or mountain biking routes. Since it is a working sheep farm, you can also expect to participate in their fun sheep shearing tours.

Meals are a very important and a
not-to-be-missed experience at Ganora. Here visitors can look forward to enjoying some traditional Karoo cooking, friendly company and much laughter about the events of the day.

Regular dishes on offer includes Karoo lamb, kudu and other game dishes, bobotie with spiced rice, organically grown vegetable dishes, and their sweet delectable koeksisters and melktert.
