At Ganora we offer visitors a special South African experience. The history of Ganora spans 270 million years, from fossil beds of mammal-like reptiles to evidence of bushman paintings and etchings as well as Anglo Boer War engravings. Additionally a tour of our wool shed offers a glimpse into farm life today.

The charming cottage is situated on the farm approximately 7 km from Nieu Bethesda and the famous Owl House. The cottage is self-contained and guests can choose to self cater, have meals on the farm, or we can make reservations at a cosy restaurant in Nieu Bethesda. The Khoisan Cottage is ideal for people seeking an active and hospitable stay on a working sheep farm, or those wishing to relax and unwind in the peace and tranquility of Karoo simplicity.

We offer a range of activities including birdwatching, mountain biking, 4x4 trails, hiking and mountain climbing, and guided tours to bushman paintings and artefacts, as well as fossil walks.

"We absolutely loved our 3 night stay in the self catering cottage on the farm. Our kids aged 10 and 12 had a ball as well, as there is so much for them to do on and around the farm. The hosts were very welcoming, helpful and gracious - nothing was too much trouble. We will definitely be back. A real oasis in a stunning part of the country. Thank you."

"We really enjoyed our stay. Hester was very welcoming, the double room was comfortable and even though we just stayed for 1 night we managed to explore the farm a little bit. Breakfast was delicious and the history of the farm and the area was fascinating. We will deifinitely be back to do some of the other activities on the farm."

"We loved our stay at Ganora, it is the second time we have visited this lovely establishment. Both visits were brief, overnight stays on our way back to Joburg. The rooms were clean and neat as usual, the food delicious and our hosts hospitable. We will definitely plan for a longer stay next time."
