About Mieliefontein

Mieliefontein is situated in Hanover, in the Karoo Gariep Hippo Conservancy. We have the only hippos that dwell in the Karoo area. The farm is known for its park-like gardens and beautiful farmhouse.

Elma is one of the best chefs in the Karoo and you may find yourself discussing her superb food before you discuss the accommodation. We offer six accommodation options and the rooms are uniquely furnished with antique pieces which were collected over a lifetime. Accommodation is located in peaceful surroundings and you will find the pool to be rewarding after a long drive. We do three-course dinners and breakfast on request.

Mieliefontein is a working sheep and cattle farm situated halfway between Johannesburg and Cape Town. We are 8 km from the N1 and 1.5 km.

Covid Safety Approved: We pledge to implement a high standard of hygiene and cleaning protocols to ensure the safest environment possible for our guests. We adhere to the industry safety protocols set out by the Tourism Business Council of South Africa (TBCSA).

                  The host was very kind and the accommodation good, however a crowing rooster kept me up all night. I won't be staying there again.
