Come and experience the calm and silence of our wonderful Karoo at Verlatenkloof, 25km from Sutherland, where time seems to stand still and the hustle and bustle of the city becomes just a vague memory. On our guest farm we strive to create an atmosphere where guests not only feel at home, but also enjoy nature and the outdoors, away from the hustle and bustle of city life.
As Verlatenkloof is also a working farm, our guests are often excited to see our old faithful Vaaljapie tractor working the lucern fields, experience the wonder of a ewe lambing, or even just watch the geese, springbok & tortoise in our animal pen.
Our guests are free to walk on the farm and also follow the sheep trail right to the top of the mountain where they can enjoy the wonderful view of rolling hills. So, remember to bring your camera, it’s a feast for the eye!
Verlatenkloof forms the ideal base from which to explore the Ssutherland area; to experience our beautiful mountain ipasses and/or to follow the trail of the Anglo Boer War. This area has a rich memory of those times. During the evenings you will be able to see our beatiful stars (bring yourown telescope) orjust relax around a braai fire in the "geelbosskerm).
Our accommodation includes 3 self-catering cottages which are fully equipped with crockery and cutlery, gas fridge and gas stove (no electricity). As far as bedding is concerned, we supply comforters, blankets and pillows.
