About Ganora Guest Farm and Excursions

At Ganora we offer visitors a special South African experience. The history of Ganora spans 270 million years, from fossil beds of mammal-like reptiles to evidence of bushman paintings and etchings as well as Anglo Boer War engravings. Additionally a tour of our wool shed offers a glimpse into farm life today.

The charming cottage is situated on the farm approximately 7 km from Nieu Bethesda and the famous Owl House. The cottage is self-contained and guests can choose to self cater, have meals on the farm, or we can make reservations at a cosy restaurant in Nieu Bethesda. The Khoisan Cottage is ideal for people seeking an active and hospitable stay on a working sheep farm, or those wishing to relax and unwind in the peace and tranquility of Karoo simplicity.

We offer a range of activities including birdwatching, mountain biking, 4x4 trails, hiking and mountain climbing, and guided tours to bushman paintings and artefacts, as well as fossil walks.

Wedding Venues: A wedding with a difference. Each wedding held at Ganora has been completely different. We try to accommodate the bride's wishes as long as it is possible on the farm.

Family friendly: Swimming pool. The Guided day tours depends on the age of the children but look under our daytours.

              Ganora Guest Farm is a wonderful place to stay when visiting Nieu Bathesda . Everything was superb.

              We absolutely loved our 3 night stay in the self catering cottage on the farm. Our kids aged 10 and 12 had a ball as well, as there is so much for them to do on and around the farm. The hosts were very welcoming, helpful and gracious - nothing was too much trouble. We will definitely be back. A real oasis in a stunning part of the country. Thank you.

              We were in the cottage on the hill side and the view was great. very comfortable with lots of room for 4 adults and 2 kids. Lots of historical things to see in the long room

              We really enjoyed our stay.  Hester was very welcoming, the double room was comfortable and even though we just stayed for 1 night we managed to explore the farm a little bit.  Breakfast was delicious and the history of the farm and the area was fascinating.  We will deifinitely be back to do some of the other activities on the farm.
