GANNABOS B & B, KAREEBOOM FARM COTTAGE AND KAREEBOOM FARM HOUSE
ARE UNDER THE SAME MANAGEMENT.
“The Farm with the world’s biggest quiver tree forest!”
Kareeboom farmhouse has been lovingly and tastefully renovated and decorated to ensure a memorable stay in the beauty that is the Hantam Karoo. A house of this nature, as well as the lush, green lawn, is an exception in this part of the world. It is able to accommodate 6 -10 people. Should a group of 16 people wish to make use of the space, it would be possible for both Kareeboom farm cottage as well as Kareeboom farmhouse to be occupied simultaneously. Both fall under the same management as Gannabos B & B.
No cell phone reception is available, but free Wi-Fi can be accessed at Gannabos Farm.
Kareeboom farmhouse is perfect for enthusiastic photographers, birdwatchers, hikers and those wanting to experience wide open spaces, peace and solitude. A breathtaking view of a mountain range covered with majestic quiver trees awaits you here at the largest quiver tree forest in the southern hemisphere. For those travelling to Augrabies, Kgalagadi, or even the Kalahari, it is an ideal stopover. For couples looking for a romantic getaway, accommodation can be provided at Gannabos Bed and Breakfast which is run under the same management.
