So good we couldn’t stay away & returned 6 days later for another two nights. We felt so very comfortable and at home here, this & the fact that I just had to return to Oudtshoorn to buy a bag! I love my ostrich leather bag. Isla, thank you for coming with me to help me choose! (an orange one!)

Alberto & Yolanda, Spain

Found ‘The Soul’ totally by luck … funky road signs! For a comfy bed, hot showers, friendly service – we spent 2 nights. Highgate ostrich riding was awesome, Cango Caves very beautiful, Jemima’s treated us to an unforgettable dinner. Karoo Soul was delightful and we will definitely spread the word back in Grand Cayman! Baie dankie, We LOVE Oudtshoorn.

We’ve enjoyed our stay here. A beautiful garden and a nice home. Just a short trip to the Cango Caves and Swartberg Hiking Trails.
Svensson, Sweden

Be aware: Most likely you'll spent more time here than you planned :-)
Arguably the best value for money you'll get on your trip in South Africa (or anywhere else in the world…) and one of those places you feel at home right from the moment you arrive.
Simply a pleasure to stay in Karoo Soul,
Thanks for having us!
