Die Gat Guest House offers a desirable honeymoon destination in the Klein Karoo - there's no reason to look any further. The ideal venue for a memorable honeymoon or a small sacred and romantic wedding reception, hidden away in the heart of the Klein Karoo where charm, romance, and tranquility prevail.

Guest rooms are offered in the outbuildings, the school where the Schoeman children were educated, the cart-shed turned wine-press, or even an ox wagon used by earlier generations. They have all been suitably furnished to give you a unique experience of the outdoors, featuring cozy beds with comfortable linen. The tranquility and peacefulness of Die Gat ensures an unforgettable sleep. You can even sleep with doors wide open so as not to miss the grumbling of ostriches.

With chivalric charm and attention to detail, we invite you to spend your first evening of your honeymoon in our newly restored cottage. The spacious rooms are decorated with style and luxury - making sure that you get the Honeymoon you deserve. The cottage consists of a bedroom/lounge, dressing room, bathroom (towels included) with a big Jacuzzi bath, a shower, and a toilet. The room is equipped with a fireplace and sherry to keep you warm on those chilly winter nights.

Our wedding venue caters for no more than 25 people, keeping it natural and intimate. We decorate the garden with candles and depending on the theme - accessories to help create the required atmosphere.

A visit to the farm and the daily routine, where you can get to know the people and life on a typical Klein Karoo farm. You can also relax at the special pool of Die Gat, with its beautiful view of the majestic surroundings. Safaris on an open Land Rover, with Anton as your tour guide, may well be the utmost experience for the adventurous, with a braai in the veld and ice cold beer or wine as part of the 5 to 6 hours long excursion into the unspoiled nature.

Supper is enjoyed with your host and hostess, Anton and Susan, in the "voorhuis" (dining room) or under the pergola and under the starry night skies. You will be treated on traditional "boerekos," regional dishes that Anton and Susan themselves prepare.
