About Karoo Khaya

Karoo Khaya is on a small-holding within walking distance of the centre of the wonderful town, Prince Albert.

Pete and Megan would like you to feel that this is a relaxing home away from home. Share our passion for the Karoo and our property. Feel free to wander through our huge veggie garden as well as our fruit and olive orchards.

Visit our animals in their free-range home. There are no streetlights or town noises to spoil that special Karoo tranquillity.

Karoo Khaya has four cottages each set in a peaceful garden with a rock plunge pool and waterfall. There is a boma with braai facilities; wood and braai equipment supplied.

The cottages are decorated with a touch of the old Karoo. Special care has been taken to give you home away from home comforts - quality linen, comfy beds and rustic little touches. Each room also has a file containing all the information you’ll need about Prince Albert and its surrounds. The cottages are serviced every day.

A full Karoo breakfast served at our home is optional at R70 per person. Jams, preserves, smoked olives and olive oil are all made on the property and are available for sale in the rooms.

There is a guest lounge with DStv and an extensive library overlooking the garden and expansive vistas of mountains and distant hills.

Wi-Fi is available.

Karoo Khaya is set on a working small-holding, so feel free to wander around and pick your veggies for supper. Kids will love the farm and are welcome to help at feeding time. Pets are welcome by arrangement.

There is plenty of secure parking.

Prince Albert is nestled at the foot of the majestic Swartberg Mountains, at the very edge of the Great Karoo.

It’s a very special place where people come to find tranquillity, inspiration and the lamb, fruits, cheeses and hospitality for which the region is famous. It is also very much still a working ‘dorp’ with a vibrant and diverse community.

Family friendly: The kids love to feed the farm animals, and picking your veggies for dinner is a great family treat. Spalsh together in the plunge pool. Space is not a problem at Karoo Khaya!

                  Warm, unobtrusive hospitality. Loved the way we were generously invited to interact with the goats and to help ourselves to the veggies in the amazing garden. Relaxed and cosy.

                  It was a wonderful experience. Coming through Swartenberg mountains (the easy way but still absolutely stunning passage for the beginners). The cottage itself had a nice rural feeling to it but with all creature' s comfort. Megan and Pete were very welcoming and extremely informative (And well informed). Recommendations for dinner and breakfast first class.

                  Was wonderful and the owners was so friendly and welcome. I had a sick child and they even made an appointment for me at the doctor.

                  Meghan & Peter are the perfect hosts!A week or so before our trip, they contacted us to give us some tips for our stay in Prince Albert. On our arrival, we were given such a lovely warm welcome and during our 3 day stay, nothing was too much trouble.We loved the rustic home-made décor in the rooms and the handwritten notes giving tips about the area.Thank you for helping to make our trip such an enjoyable and relaxing one. We have already recommended you and will not hesitate to book again when we are in the area. Establishments response:Hi DianeThanks for the great reviewWe love seeing our...
