We decided to explore some big boulders we saw in Gamkaskloof at the top of Swartberg Pass. Moroc Karoo was a proper Karoo experience. There is so much to do and explore around Matjiesriver. We really enjoined our stay and will be back soon.

We had a wonderful stay and found the hosts friendly and welcoming. The cottage was beautifully furnished and although the double room we had as well was well furnished it was dark and the first room we were shown would've been more suitable and brighter....More

Off the beaten track in the Klein Karoo, there is a place ... where dreams take flight over fynbosveld and stars create a symphony. Moroc-Karoo is situated in the foothills of the majestic Swartberg mountains in More the beautiful Matjiesrivier Valley, just around the bend from Gamkaskloof (Die Hel) and the world renowned Cango Caves, 45 kilometers from Oudtshoorn. As such, Moroc-Karoo is the ideal base from which to explore the beautiful Klein-Karoo. It offers comfortable elegant farm stay accommodation for your next breakaway with your family and friends. The main well-appointed old farmhouse is beautifully decorated in a fusion of Karoo, Moroccan and French style and can accommodate up to 6 guests in 3 en suite rooms, one open plan with Victorian bath and two with showers, furnished with a comfortable king-size bed or 2 single beds, decked with fresh, clean, high quality linen. Each suite has its own entrance and coffee and tea amenities in the room. Full English breakfast, dinner and picnic baskets available on request. In summertime you can relax around the plunge pool or take a stroll down a dusty country path and when the Karoo puts on her snowy winter garb, cozy up to the fireplace while sipping on a glass of world renowned port. You can also explore one of many scenic circle routes in the area, do some bird watching or gaze up at the star studded Karoo sky and drift away on a dream. A small and intimate guesthouse characterized by down-to-earth elegance, warm Karoo hospitality and that something different that sets us apart from the rest. This is the arty, earthy and romantic getaway in the country you've been dreaming about. Less
