More about us

Discover everyday life on a Klein Karoo farm with its many activities or simply relax and unwind, perhaps with a glass of wine from the farm winery…?  On the farm Doornkraal near the town of De Rust in the Klein Karoo, two self-catering cottages awaits guests. The farm is easily accessible by tarred road, about 5 minutes from De Rust.  Secluded yet at the same time an ideal base from where to explore surrounding areas including the famous Swartberg Pass, Meiringspoort (a natural gorge with spectacular rock formations), Oudtshoorn with tourist attractions for all ages (Cango Caves, ostrich farms, etc.) and the picturesque Prince Albert, a Victorian village nestled between the mountains and the vast plains of the Great Karoo. An easy and scenic drive of no more than 2 hours to the Garden Route and its stunning beaches and George international airport. Birdlife and botanical delights are plentiful and special. Baviaanskloof is about 1 hour away.

Doornkraal Kothuis is an Edwardian-style cottage built in the tranquil shade of a 100 year old oak and sleeps 5 . It is  a totally private, self-contained house comprising of 2 suites with adjoining bathrooms – one with a romantic 4-poster bed, the other with a three quarter and a single bed. Specially chosen family antiques and eclectic artwork add further charm and unique style. Well equipped kitchen and outside BBQ area with spellbinding views across the sweeping valley and hills.


Kerneelia Kothuis is a charming self-catering cottage with a mountain view in a romantic setting.  The bedroom has a romantic queen-sized bed that can be converted to 2 single beds and a three quarter bed in the living room. One bathroom with a shower, washbasin and toilet. Fresh milk and butter is available in the fridge and in the morning a breakfast basket with scones, fruit, yogurt and fresh bread is delivered on the stoep.


Guests are warmly welcomed to experience all facets of Doornkraal, a traditional and fully functional Klein Karoo farm. Scenic walks amongst the fields and hills, cycling on footpaths or farm roads and excursions on our Cape Riding Horses, direct descendants of the noble horses featured in South Africa’s epic history, are a few favourite and fully-inclusive activities.


We will provide the ingredients for a barbecue if required, otherwise we will recommend a local restaurant.


Horse riding on the farm offered at R200/horse/hour. Please book in advance.



Our venue, which we call Tante Maria se Stal, is a charming venue with modest old world character. Once a stable for farm animals, it is a happy place to host all sorts of events (including weddings)  for 10 or more guests. Call us for more details and options.
