Welcome to Blesfontein!
Blesfontein is situated just outside Sutherland in the quiet and remote Tankwa Karoo of South Africa's Northern Cape. Located on the edge of the escarpment, Blesfontein can be accessed either via a gravel road (off the R354) or from the Tankwa Karoo via the Ouberg Pass (for 4x4s).
Blesfontein is a family-friendly destination in every season.
ANNOUNCEMENT!! Blesfontein is OPEN!
And we'd love to host you!
SUPPORT FOR BLESFONTEIN DURING COVID
Thank you to our friends and guests for your AMAZING support during and after lockdown! We look forward to seeing you on the farm soon.
From our guest book...
"Perfect accommodation with all the necessary for a self catering stay. We were treated by Nicol to a fun, informative and very interesting talk about the stars while seated around his large telescope. Later we had the chance to view the universe through the telescope... what an experience! "
"Arriving late we opted to prebook dinner prepared by Marina. She served lamb chops and potato fries which were delicious. The next morning we visited the Planetarium in Sutherland which is a MUST. Incredible coffee, great warm enthusiastic welcome and a show to rival the best."
"Thank You, Nicol and Marina, this was the best vacation of my life!"
"Thank you to Nicol and Marina for a lovely snowy break away on your farm. It is an experience that I will remember for a very long time."
"Our children loved our visit to Blesfontein: aged 4 and 5, we let them loose each day to explore, collect eggs, make friends with the animals and be farm kids. Washing the dust off each night, we heard all about the many adventures they had. Nicol and Marina, thank you for letting our kiddies follow you around as you did your chores. Our children enjoyed every minute of each day. Thank you!"
"Die gasvryheid was ongelooflik vriendelik en altyd gereed met die ietsie ekstra; lammers melk gee, kyk na die maan en meer. Ons het dit baie geniet! The hospitality was incredibly friendly and they were always ready to help with that little extra, lambs milk provided, looking at the moon and much more. We enjoyed it very much!"
"My children want to know when are we going to visit Blesfontein again. We couldn't imagine our city kids to love a farm vacation so much!"
"Thanks a lot for the privilege to spend our honeymoon in your cow shed! We're now more in love than ever!"
Please note: Blesfontein is a working farm with lots of farm animals and resident wildlife. We love to have you interact with them but please leave your dogs at home. Blesfontein is not pet-friendly.
