The Karoo landscape lingers forever in your mind.

“The place of thirst”, as it was first described…

Leeuwenboschfontein Guest Farm is an ideal getaway at any time of year, whether in the warmth of summer or the occasional snow of winter. The farm is set in a valley that speaks to your senses, against the unique landscape of succulents and renosterbos, bordered by breath-taking mountains of the Klein Karoo.

The owners have taken great care not to over commercialise the facilities, creating a welcoming farm style atmosphere. The accommodation comprises of six separate units: Bungalow, De Kraal, Willows Cottage  and the original old manor house  which is divided into three separate units, namely De Oude Opstal, Bergzicht Cottage and Dalzicht Cottage.  There is also an attractive camp site comprising 29 separate stands.

The extensive property offers a variety of activities. It is an ideal destination for hikers, campers, mountain bikers, 4×4 touring groups, stargazers, freshwater fishermen, birdwatchers and weekenders.  De Oude Opstal is furnished to house groups and even small conferences.

The 4×4 trail has earned several accolades as well as being one of Go! Drive Out’s Top Ten Trails.  Even the Kyknet program Safari 4×4 has visited and the route set quite a challenge to the acclaimed Andre de Villiers. The farm’s previous owner and the original developer of the routes, Jannie du Plessis, is well known in 4×4 circles. He complied with all the requirements in setting up the routes, which means that the Department of Environmental Affairs has officially recognised it as an environmentally friendly 4×4 trail.

Drive Out Top 10

Even before you arrive at the reception and guesthouse complex, it’s clear Leeuwenboschfontein is a notch above standard trails. You drive through an avenue of trees that passes a dam with rowing boats and willow trees lining its wall.DESTINATIONS, Drive Out
