What our guests say
Despite the rural location in the Sneeuberg range, the booking, planning and coordination was seamless and we felt warmly welcome, even before our arrival. Kliphuis is a 'stunner' and the 4 couples in our family group were comfortable, with the equipment adequate for our planned family feast. All our requests were met to our satisfaction. Our night photography of the milky way over the Karoo landscape a winner!
Lovely Karoo Getaway
We had a wonderful 5 night get away at the Gordonville Cottage. Just what we needed after months of lockdown. Accommodation was very good. Best prepared picnic basket ever. Staff very helpful. Did some walks on the reserve and spotted some game and birds.
Karoo cottage is a dream
We had such a fantastic peaceful holiday here, the welcome was warm and the cottage was immaculately neat, a welcome fruit bowl and loads of firewood for the icy weather, but we never felt cold! we will be back , the reserve and the cottage are just heavenly
Unforgettable visit to the Sneeuberg Nature Reserve
We had a splendid time at Sneeuberg Reserve. On our arrival, we were spoiled with a delicious platter, freshly baked bread, and wine. We enjoyed it on the stoep while looking at the amazing view. Everything we needed was available in the house like firewood, matches, etc. The rooms were cozy with warm linen and electric blankets. We have done some star gazing at night. We enjoyed every moment of our stay and will recommend a visit to the Sneeuberg Reserve
Memorable hideaway in the Karoo!
Visited Kliphuis with colleagues. We enjoyed the wide-open expanses of veld all around of us - felt one with nature! So, so quiet - once cannot help but relax! Visited in August - hence the fires in the house kept us cosy and warm. The kitchen is well stocked and we were able to cook up a storm. The decor of the house lends itself perfectly to the "architecture" and surrounds - we felt warm and coccooned. Bathrooms were a little cold, but understandable given the look of the house (great for summer).
Our Stay At Sneeuberg
We had the most lovely 2 nights staying in the Karoo Cottage. It was clean, and beautiful and lovely. We really enjoyed the HUGE indoor fireplace in the kitchen and spent hours playing cards in front of the fire, when we weren't out wandering on the farm.
This is a place that touches your heart and soul and rejuvenates the body, mind and soul.
Van der Merwe Family
We had a great time alternating between relaxing in the luxurious Karoo house and exploring the endless, well looked after mountain biking trials across the vast mountainous landscapes. A great place to train at high altitude. Highly recommended.
Wonderlike kuierhuis in die Karoo! Massiewe kaggels in amper elke vertrek (met hout daagliks), groot kuier areas met luukse, gemaklike stoele en banke en ten volle toegeruste kombuise. Sneeuberg se huise het letterlik alles wat mens nodig het om weg te breek met familie en vriende.
Karoo silence meets supreme luxury! We loved Sneeuberg. It was great to know that the staff was just a WhatsApp away. Thanks for all the delicious food and fresh bread in the morning, Amanda and Gladice! And thanks for looking after us, Ann and Scott!
An amazing place to get away from it all. The houses are kilometres away from one another, so you really feel like you’re in the middle of nowhere. You can even order dinner, picnic lunches and fresh farm bread from the staff and they’ll bring it to your house. Wonderful experience in the Great Karoo.

Just lock me in here and leave me alone.
I hope you don’t mind quiet because there’s buckets of it here. Once the car’s engine had stopped, the silence came, so overwhelming it made your ears ring.
Delicious suppers; a magical sundowner; lazy mornings on the stoep; a beautiful walk and wonderful musical entertainment- we couldn’t have asked for more.
We felt the Karoo vibrations in abundance- we’ll be back!
