The owner of Vrisch Gewagt is as intensely private as they come, although you can’t help but notice hints of his exuberance and passion for life; from the framed photos of Tango dancers in the guest loo in the manor house, to the inviting accommodation erected for owls and bats in the olive groves, in addition to that for humans.

When you walk into your accommodation, you will flop down on the huge comfy bed, dressed in crisp high thread-count linens, sigh and whisper “I’m home.” No expense has been spared in luxurious furniture, fittings and fixtures. We’re talking SMEG fridges and Nespresso coffee machine every suite, designer bathrooms, original artwork and seriously artistic décor.

One of the best things about Vrisch Gewagt,is that you won’t be disturbed by annoying staff appointing themselves as your personal planners, interrupting your thoughts with inane comments about the weather (not that the weather in the Karoo is ever inane), or prying into your personal life.
