The views were amazing, and the site is very well located for exploring the various sites and facilities (caves, ostriches, crocodiles, etc.) that Oudtshoorn has to offer. The host/owner was gracious, engaging and happy to resolve the couple of minor issues we mentioned to him. He also prepared some lovely meals for us in the evenings and served generous breakfasts....

We only stayed one night at this beautiful location. The welcome and the service were great. We enjoyed the night in the tent, particularly because it was a different experience. The view was amazing. It was quiet and the night sky was beautiful with so many stars and no other disturbing lights. We enjoyed an afternoon at the pool and...

A rustic setting atop of a hill, accommodations are good and reasonably priced. Private and quiet. Owner cooks up an outstanding meal, try the ostrich, cooked to perfection. The ride to the top of the hill is an adventure in itself, drive carefully. Great location to all your other activities.

We would like to apologise for the entire incident. We never thought it was a joke but were trying to keep calm as we knew the town was fully booked. This was the very first time that this has ever happened that we have a double booking. There was quite a lot of confusion on this reservation. if the booking...

Nice place in a quiet environment. Beautiful view. Pascal is a good host, makes you breakfast and dinner on the balcony. Nice bath outside but beware of the coldness in de morning. Waking up in nature a real experience. Luxury camping. Nice pool with towels.

Had a great time at ale Petit Karoo. Lovely tents just outside Oudtshoorn. Fantastic view from the outside bath tub. There was a wedding going on one night but the owner tried to accommodate us and we ha a nice dinner by the fire. Enjoyed it very much.

Pascal, his family and the staff have been very friendly and help. The room almost on top of the hill, overlooking the valley, was superb and exactly what I expected on our road trip through South Africa

We had three nights at le Petit Karoo Ranch, one in a new unit looking north to the hills, and two nights in a luxury tented unit with plunge pool looking into the valley. The new room was a little bland, and would have benefited from a picture window in the bathroom so one could enjoy the open space view...

Wonderful experience, with great hosts and service. Pascal really goes above and beyond to make his guests feel really comfortable. He is one fantastic chef as well! We stayed in a bust tent and it was wonderful. The tent was really neat with all relevant amenities
