About Grootwaterval

Grootwaterval is a lovely sheep farm situated in Central Karoo, 45 km from the charming village of Prince Albert, at the foot of the Swartberg Pass in South Africa. We offer a variety of accommodation options.

Experience the vastness and calm of the Karoo while enjoying the wide view over the veld, and be amazed at the wonders of a clear night’s sky, listening to the birds and looking out for steenbuck and turtles.

Our guests are welcome to participate in our farm activities including tractor driving and working with the sheep and goats. We farm merino sheep which provide the famous fine-grade wool, shearing them every ten months. Other activities include hiking, mountain biking, bird watching, game viewing and stargazing.

You can stroll through the quiet streets of Prince Albert and look at the well-preserved houses dating back to the 19th Century with beautiful lush gardens. The tourist office is excellent if you need any assistance.

The farm is peaceful and beautiful. You can roam freely and I took the most amazing photos. Keep an eye out for the small treasures: 2 pieces of rock lying next to each other after broken apart, small plants with smaller flowers. The accommodation rustic but with everything you may need including very comfy thick duvets. The sunsets are exquisite.

We loved our stay at Grootwaterval. Lovely cottage, clean and comfortable. Stunning Karoo farm.

At Grootwaterval you feel right at home after a lenghty drive on gravel road, welcomed with a cool drink and settled in at the very basic, but all you need cottage. Being surrounded by beautiful nature of the Klein Karoo Is a Blessing for your soul - will visit again!!

It was a very dissapointing experience. Firstly the road to the guesthouse is very bad and a gravel road and my car struggled on the road. I eventually got to the gates of the farm after travelling more thab 45km on this road. I had to continue on a very narrow gravel road.and my car scraped at the bottom. I then tried to phone the numbers provided.for the guest farm and all of them was niy existing. I had no way to find out how far I still needed to go. The road was bad and I had to decide to turn around. I also had a puncture on the road. I find it very dissapointing that all numbers did...
