Blesfontein is a very special working farm where you can escape back to nature. They have a vaiety of animals on the farm. They offer Horse riding and several other activities. One feel as if you can breathe in the lovely Karoo surroundings.

Being back here a couple of times over the years. My favourite time is snow time, the atmosphere, the people, the farm animals, the hosts. This is true Karoo..

Such a beautiful place to escape the noise of the city. Intense star gazing, silent nights, warm fires, cosy stone cottages. Nothing can be better!
