“the ultimate escape”

Deep in the Great Karoo at the foot of the untouched Witteberg you will find Vêrgenoeg “the ultimate escape”.

Experience the Karoo as few people will ever do. Blue skies and starry nights as far as the eye can see.

Explore the secrets of the “dorsland”, like the abundance and variety of:

  • bird life – 125 species identified to date. climb the mountain and see the rare Orange Breasted Sunbird
  • animal life – encounter the nocturnal lynx and ant-eater and other seldom-seen animals on a night drive
  • plant life –  come see the beautiful plant Senecio haworthii (tonteldoosbos) which is considered threatened in its native habitat. We might not have the abundance of Namakwaland’s flowers, but our variety is absolutely astonishing.


Take on the rhythm of creation while on a hike (guided or on your own), feel the silence and peace that only Vêrgenoeg can offer you.

For those that really want to step out of the rat race, there are two self-catering thatched chalets built against a hillside overlooking the Great Karoo, each uniquely designed to accommodate just 2 people.

Snuggle down before the fireplace for a long romantic winter evening.

The kitchen is completely fitted for self-catering.

Cool off from the Karoo heat in the swimming pool and let your eyes sweep over the amazing view. Please bring your own towels for drying off after swimming.

Drift off to sleep in a queen-size bed in the deep Karoo quiet, glimpsing the stars through your window. The bathroom has a shower and we provide all linen and towels.
