Tankwa Guest Farm – a true Karoo experience

Tankwa Guest Farm lies in the heart of the Tankwa Karoo, where the tranquillity engulfs you, nature waits patiently to be explored and flowers surprise you in spring.

We offer a luxurious large guest farm for groups, with all you need for self-catering. Our recently renovated farm house has elegantly furnished rooms, with crisp, white linen and are decorated in earthy colours to compliment our natural setting. We have solar power to make your stay even more comfortable. Our house sleeps a maximum of 15 people, with 4 rooms (one en-suite and an extra bathroom for the rest of the family/group). The house can be divided in two for separate groups or two families. The first halve has a room with a double and single bed, en-suite bathroom and a living area with two sleeper couches. The other halve has two double beds (each in their own room) a room with two single beds, a sleeper couch in the living area and a bathroom to share. Both sections have fully equipped kitchens with gas facilities, so all you have to bring is food.

The farm is situated near the entrance of the Tankwa National Park, offering you the chance to explore the park and for your convenience, we will assist with day passes into the park. The park and farm are situated in the Succulent Karoo Biome and is famous for its rare and endemic plant species, variety of birdlife and scenic landscapes.

If you’d prefer not to venture out too far, the farm also offers enough to explore, for short hikes, bicycle rides or even just a relaxing day spent on the large family stoep, the farm has something for everyone in the family. At night, enjoy a braai in the boma under the starry Karoo nightsky.

We are situated 155km from Ceres and 91km from Sutherland, only 2km from the entrance of the Tankwa National Park and 15km from the Park’s Head Offices.

Things to do

On Tankwa Guest Farm you can explore the farm on foot, on bicycle or in your own vehicle.

And with the Tankwa National Park around the corner, it is easy to explore all the wondrous fauna and flora that the Tankwa Karoo has to offer. The park was established in 1986, with a mere 26 000 hectares and by 2010 the park already had nearly 143 600 hectares.

The attraction of the park and surrounding area, lies in its scenic landscape of koppies and moon-like territory, rich variety of succulent plants and a diversity in interesting birdlife.
