Thank you to Pascal and his staff. Beautiful accommodation in the family room and very surprised to find there was a communal living area. Much needed swim in the pool to cool down after arrival. Fire woods and crockery and cuttlery was arranged as we had decided to braai. Our breakfast was wonderful. Would definitely recommend Le Peit Karro Ranch....

Pascal has made a truly special place here. We were sorry to only stay for one night. We (2 persons) stayed in one of the tents, which is rustic and peaceful and the added jacuzzi in the back was great. We ate a simple dinner at the restaurant, consisting of salad and ostrich steak - lovely! Highly recommended if you...

Sadly we only had one night there and we would have loved to have more! We stayed in Tent 3 and it was fantastic! A very big tent, big deck and absolutely gorgeous "bathroom" with a soaking jacuzzi with views directly out over the Karoo. It was exceptionally clean and most certainly glamping. I could have spent a week there...

To get there you drive up a small and steep road, but it is well lit and maintained so perfectly okay. My parents stayed in the safari tent, my partner & me stayed in the room. Both had amazing views over the valley. All the comforts you need and your host is amazing (and his food too!).

What an amazing experience! We stayed in the tented rooms - very unique experience that we loved! The tents were very private and the outdoor spa bath brought a feeling of luxury to the experience! Overall the tents were very comfortable and offered spectacular views of the valley! The road/driveway adds to the uniqueness of this property!

Stayed here twice and although the driveway makes you work for it, the views are to die for. The rooms are cheap and comfortable and the free wifi is a bonus. We always stay in the double rooms so can't comment on the tents.

The guest house has a wonderful view over the valley. Note breakfast is available but is charged extra. They helped us with a dinner booking and sorted out the tv channel issue for us. Had some trouble getting through to them on the phone.
