The homey Rosenhof Country House is located near the picturesque town of Oudtshoorn, in South Africa’s Klein Karoo. Rosenhof has a pretty garden setting, with tranquil views of the Swartberg Mountain and is an ideal stopover for travellers wanting to see the spectacular Cango Caves or visit some of the Klein Karoo’s ostrich farms. The main homestead dates back to 1852 and has been charmingly restored.
Each of the comfortable suites is individually decorated, including two spacious and private executive suites that have their own plunge pools. This small and intimate country guesthouse is perfect for couples and small groups, and offers plenty of luxuries and services including a wellness centre, beauty clinic, an elegant restaurant, and a cosy bar and lounge area.
For those travelling from Cape Town to the Garden Route, Oudtshoorn is a small country town ideal for an overnight stay en route. Enjoy traditional farm-style cuisine, indulge in a treatment at the spa, rent a bicycle and explore the countryside, or simply sit back and with a glass of wine and appreciate the fine mountain views. This area is also home to the beautiful Cango Caves – an underground labyrinth of narrow passageways that open into vast caverns adorned with dazzling stalactites and stalagmites. It is also the ‘ostrich capital of the world’ and you can visit a working ostrich farm, feed these large land birds and even ride one!
