The Manor is unique in its warm design which reflects the local Karoo landscape and traditions with a light, modern twist, interpreted through the eyes of talented South African interior designer John Jacob Zwiegelaar.
Upon arrival at the Manor, your eye is drawn through the glass double doors flanked by beaded African artwork and traditional Karoo antiques to the breathtaking views beyond. The Karoo mountain landscape unfolds over a 21m infinity pool, descending to a waterhole frequently visited by warthogs, monkeys and buffalo.
Our rates include:
The villa opens up into two living areas and two smaller breakaway lounging alcoves. Unwind by the fireplace where a crackling fire burns in the winter months and the large glass doors to the patio are cast wide open in summer. Dining takes places in a well-appointed dining room adjacent to the comfortable bar area. There is also a small breakfast room next to the kitchen, which can double up as a study.
When the weather is fair, candlelit dinners are set up on the verandah, on the lawn under the purple-flowered Jacaranda tree, or out in the bush beneath a star-studded sky. A Karoo-style boma, fashioned out of an old water reservoir, is the perfect place for pre-dinner drinks around the fire.
Each suite comprises a bedroom and bathroom with shower and free-standing bath. A private patio with outdoor seating looks out over a mountain landscape – the perfect location for lazy afternoons reading Out of Africa.
When booked exclusively, the Manor can sleep a maximum of 8 adults and a limited number of extra children. Exclusive-use guests have access to a private vehicle, ranger, chef and host. A tailor-made programme of activities is designed to suit the interests and needs of the entire group.
Children of all ages are welcome and permitted on game drives when The Manor has been booked exclusively. A minimum 2-night stay applies to exclusive-use bookings. We recommend at least 3 to relax into the Karoo frame of mind.
