Level two has provided our beautiful country with much needed relief and an opportunity to escape from lockdown stresses with leisure and inter-provincial travel now allowed. We know that it’s no time to relax safety precautions, which is why Matjiesfontein is the perfect location to enjoy an escape: refresh and rejuvenate with wide open spaces, clean Karoo air, the tranquil sounds of nature and view the spectacular wildflowers in bloom!
"It is curious, and to me very attractive this mixture of civilization & the most wild untamed freedom; the barren mountains & wild Karroo & the railway train."- Olive Schreiner, March 25th, 1890
Take a trip on the Old London Bus, let yourself be summoned to dinner by trumpet, soak up the history in the Transport or Victoriana museums, take in the uniqueness of the Little Karoo with veld walks, hikes and mountain bikes, visit the Boer War British Army remount encampment site (c.1900) nearby, play a game of tennis or Petanque, or simply relax, and read in the hotel's opulent lounges or by the residents only pool.
We’ve been busy spending quality time with our families, enjoying the solace of the Karoo and getting ready to welcome back all our wonderful guests of course – and you?
