About Adam se Uitspanning
Adam se Uitspanning refers to the place where visitors can rest in old fashioned style in one of nine lovingly restored ox wagons.
These authentic ox wagons, built in the beginning of the previous century, are transformed into unique self-catering accommodation which guarantees an experience not to forget.
The Uitspanning is situated in an Eco park in the Upper-Karoo, which means springboks and smaller antelope, small predators and mammals, a variety of birds and reptiles can be expected to visit. Rock engravings from prehistorical nomads, British soldiers and early farmers can be seen in the vicinity.
The vegetation is typical of the semi-dessert plants adapted to the Upper Karoo with its harsh climate.
The wagons and its inhabitants are protected by a veranda and a stoep, which extends the living area. A fire place to braai and an anthill oven provides the facilities for a memorable night under the bright stars and the quiet veld of the Karoo.
The bathroom is right next to the wagon and has a shower with hot water and a flush toilet. Each wagon has its own character, deriving from the painting on the wagon’s ladder and the history of the wagon. Three of the wagons have private bathrooms, and 6 of them share a bathroom with their neighboring wagon.
If you can endure the scorching summer sun, icy winters, dusty winds, flies, midgets, mosquitos... (like the explorers, transport drivers, trekboere, hunters, the Voortrekkers and your forefathers did!), you will be rewarded by golden sunrises and sunsets, vistas with rough kopjes and ridges, iron-stone, herbal Karoo bossies, peace and quiet...
