WHAT OUR GUESTS SAY…

Berghuisie Guest

Just what we needed. Very beautiful. Definitely the BEST pod we have stayed in in South Africa. The farm manager Alwyn and Annetjie were very helpful. We foraged for eggs and vegetables so you do not need to take much food with you. They even offer a menu of meats which we took advantage of. All from the farm. Ostrich, Chicken, Springbok and Lamb Chops. All fresh delicious and affordable. We haven't tasted chicken like that since we were kids. The views and peacefulness are unmatched. I read 2 books in 4 days. Reminder to take a book or two with you. The Pod has 2 decks to sit on weather depending. It is air conditioned which was awesome. It is fully off the grid and the water is pure and drinkable. The hot tub is cool to sit in at night as the stars are spectacular as you're in the middle of nowhere. If you run out of anything, you call Annetjie, and Alwyn will deliver ASAP. We highly recommend you add this to your bucket list.

Truly one of my best finds on Airbnb. Any couples looking for a romantic getaway far from the maddening crowd need look no further! Epic mountain bike trails and the best lamb chops in the Karoo. Koemie and Nico you have truly created a little piece of heaven we can't wait to return! Big thank you to Annetjie and Alwyn for taking care of our every need.

Stunning location and house. The house pictures look amazing but it’s even more stunning when you walk in. The game drive with Alwyn was incredible as we didn’t realise how big the Bioreserve was. Highly recommend this if you want a quiet and very stylish time with nature.

Absolutely incredible! Slice of heaven in the Klein Karoo. Annatjie and Alwyn were amazing at hosting us while Koemie was away and we felt very looked after, but somehow they also managed to leave us feeling peaceful and private. The decor is beautiful and so tasteful, the kitchen had more than what we expected and the farm itself is tucked in a unique and magical part of the country. If you are a hiker, trail runner or mountain biker this is the perfect getaway! Thanks Koemie, Annatjie and Alwyn - we will be back!! X

This place is absolutely magic. Very beautifully decorated. The kitchen is super well equipped. Even more than what was listed. The hot tub was an absolute winner. We also loved the waterhole right in front of our cottage. The hosts treated us to some arrival gifts and a freshly baked farm break the next morning. As I said super special experience.

Wow, what wonderful hosts you all are! The stay we had at Aardvark Bioreserve was truly great. Our absolute highlight was the exceptionally well-constructed mountain bike and walking trails in this beautiful arid environment. Our Zebra Cottage was exactly as described and everything we could have wished for, done tastefully with such attention to detail...home from home. The kitchen is extremely well equipped and we felt comfortable in the cottage. A bonus was the delicious warm vetkoek baked by Anna, the great drinking water, being offered fresh produce from the farm and having Netflix in the evenings, even though every evening can be spent just relaxing outside in the most peaceful atmosphere. Alwyn went out of his way to show us where the best riding is and where all the tracks are and then took us on a wonderful sundowner drive to see the wildlife, plants and birds. Just lovely! Well done to you all and we will be back soon!

Beautiful! What a great city escape and amazing to have such a fully equipped house. Five-star experience on all fronts. Annatjie was a lovely host, always ready happy to help, and proactive. The place itself is in a nice peaceful location. It had anything you could need to prepare a meal, the ice maker, spices etc were a nice extra too. Comfortable beds! Amazing hot tub views of the Milky Way at night or of zebras and elands in the day! We did a short hike, which was also lovely! Would definitely come back. Special place!

We really enjoyed our stay here. Everything was top quality and very well thought out. For anyone who likes cooking - the kitchen has everything you need and more. Load shedding didn't affect us as they have installed a great solution and the outdoor fire-heated hot tub was gorgeous, especially watching the stars at night. We enjoyed great hikes, encountering the Zebra and Springbok wandering around the land, had a braai and one of the evenings enjoyed movies in the very comfortable snug with Netflix. There were also a lot of lovely personal touches such as a gift on arrival and our hosts were extremely responsive to requests for more firewood and anything else we needed. Two things to mention, it is 25-30 minutes to the nearest town so come well prepared although in a beautiful peaceful environment, the cottage is located on a working farm so not completely remote. Having said this, we never felt like we didn't have complete privacy. A wonderful stay - well recommended.

In every aspect a 5/5. Would recommend it to anyone, as it is a beautiful house that is very well kept in a magnificent surrounding. Annetjie and Alwyn are incredibly hospitable and the farm is lovely. We have greatly enjoyed the tour around the incredible property as well.

Springbok Guest

We had a wonderful peaceful stay in the aptly named Springbok cottage. Browsing Springbok on the hillside with amazing sunsets over the Langeberg. The MTB Trails are really fun and you really get out into the landscape with bonus game viewing. Loved the new game MTB Trails. Annatjie and the team were very welcoming and helpful. Thank you for a great stay!

We give the Springbok cottage a 10 out of 10. That whole experience on that farm was fantastic. Hiking and MTB are well-designed and challenging. Koemie, Annetjie and Alwyn are wonderful and so kind. Nothing is too much trouble for them and we were even spoiled with “vetkoek” (thank you to the chef!) A big thank you! Can’t wait to go back

Very big house which was just right for our group of friends. The area is very picturesque and calm. The house is well equipped with everything needed. Very responsive, helpful and friendly hosts who were very approachable and flexible with check-in/check-out times and also provided lots of pleasant compliments, such as some wines, pastries and fresh juice. The host gave us a sunset safari around the farm which was very exciting as we were able to see some wild animals. Highly recommended place and great hosts! Thanks for such an unforgettable long weekend!
