BLOEMHOFKAROO is a historic home, once owned and loved by Professor Christiaan Barnard . The Homestead rests graciously in an oasis amongst kopjes on a working farm in the Malaria free, Northern Cape, Great Karoo. Located just 5km from the N1, BloemhofKaroo provides an accessible farm-style getaway for both one-night stops, and longer stays.

BloemhofKaroo is the ideal retreat for relaxing and rejuvenation of the soul, the perfect escape for:

  • Family Getaways
  • Overnight stops en route the N1 from Johannesburg to Cape Town and the Coast
  • Artists’ Retreats
  • Writing Workshops
  • Photographic Getaways
  • Intimate Weddings
  • Vow Renewals

Hiking, off road motorcycling and mountain biking enthusiasts will be enthralled and challenged by the varied terrain. Guests can relax in the Drawing Room, with a well-stocked characteristic bar, opening onto a protected braai area. There are 2 Dining Rooms, and a Sunroom, so guests have opportunities for privacy or communal enjoyment. There are also lovely outside sitting areas, under enormous Pepper Trees. Refresh yourselves in the farm ‘Swemdam’.

BloemhofKaroo is also proud of its beautiful Chapel, converted from a shed several years ago, and built entirely from rock taken off the farm. For intimate weddings Bloemhof can sleep 9 guests on-site, as well as additional guests at the adjoining Private Game Reserve. Please contact us for more information.
