A to Z list of The Little Karoo Hotels and Guest Houses

The Little Karoo is a semi arid region wedged between two great mountain ranges, whose rivers and streams have made the area well suited to agriculture, including grapes, olives, sheep and ostrich farming. A great area for self driving, the Little Karoo has some truly spectacular drives and mountain passes to explore.

For a Big Five adventure, check out Blaauwbosch Private Game Reserve, while The Retreat at Groenfontein Guesthouse is a delightful hostelry in a beautiful valley near Calitzdorp and is a good base from which to visit the Cango Caves or an ostrich farm.
