Guests have a choice of staying in the ticket office, Safari tents,backpackers, or camping in their own tents or caravans..

The backpackers, and tents share modern ablution facilities with hot showers, as well as a kitchen with a fridge, a gas hob and cutlery and crockery.

The Station also offers facilities to host functions and has been the choice venue for film shoots, weddings, weekend workshops, birthday and stag parties, art exhibitions, and the local Winter in Calitzdorp Festival.

The typical little Karoo town of Calitzdorp is probably mostly recognized for its production of some of the country’s best port wines. Queen Street is one of the oldest streets in town and begs a stroll to properly absorb the number of Edwardian, Victorian and Karoo-style buildings heavily influenced by English architecture. Activities include walking trails in the Gamkaberg Nature Reserve, and the Redstone Hills, Groenfontein, and Matjiesvlei. Birding in the hills and viewing the fynbos areas are also more than rewarding.

Wedding Venues: Ideal for either an indoor or outdoor wedding or reception. Under-vine on the platform space with the kranz alongside provides a beautiful outdoor setting, while the sprung wooden floored restored loading shed is ideal for inclement weather.

                  Loved staying in the tent. Comfortable and spotless. Kitchen close by and ablutions immaculate. Thank you.

                  A location steeped in SA history (I could almost hear the steam trains chuffing and rattling past during the night!) and complimented by the warm hospitality of the hostess.

                  Loved the Location, the people and the fact that we were staying in a resurrected piece of SA History
