The Owl House
Set in a quaint old Karoo house, The Owl House Backpackers is a must for anyone who has the time, or needs a spiritual boost.
Mountains wall this valley, birthplace of astonishing creations. Crystal clear night skies make stargazing compulsory. A mountain spring feeds water furrows and hot thirsts. Doors stand open to passers by, the wind whispers secrets, and magic blows at midnight.
Pull on your hiking boots for amazing hikes along mountain trails past incredible San rock art, fossil beds and other natural wonders. Then visit the haunting Valley of Desolation and the Mountain Zebra National Park.
