It is a lovely place with a very nice view from the tents. These tents are amazing and have teir own hottube. The owner is very friendly and helpful. The drive up their is a bit scary, especially at night but it is worth it!

The whole presence creates satisfaction and joy in one. Pascal cooked for us. The food was excellent. Appetizer-main-course dessert, everything tasted fantastic and was presented worth seeing. The...

My partner and I had an amazing mid-trip break, last minuter decided to go up to see the Cango Caves whilst in the Western Cape and fortunately booked the last room available here! How lucky, as it was a fabulous place to stay at, with our own separate "room" which was half a 'army-style' tent and half exposed stone walls.... More

We stayed in 2 large permanent tents built on a wooden platform with all the necessaries and a spa bath for each tent. Very comfortable..... full... More

This was one of the best places we stayed in our lives! The view is awesome, the room perfect, the food wonderful. We stayed in the luxury tent and loved it! We had a nice breakfast and the host cooked a wonderful meal at night. Too bad we stayed only one night...

We wanted a bit of an outdoor feel, but with basic amenities. The tents at Le Petit Karoo provided just that! All the basis that you need, including a fantastic view and a bright starry night. A very friendly French owner who cooked a local ostrich steak paired with French ratatouille.
