Grootwaterval is located in the semi-dry central Karoo, approximately 45 kilometres from the town of Prince Albert in the Western Cape, at the foot of the Swartberg Pass. The adventure starts where the tar road ends and the gravel road starts.

The farm offers quality accommodation for a peaceful break away and is ideal for a family or a group of friends.

The accommodation comprises 2 self-catering houses and a spacious lodge for larger groups.

The Gemsbok Cottage can accommodate up to 6 guests at a time and comprises 2 bedrooms, 1 with a double and the second with 2 single beds. Each bedroom has an en-suite bathroom fitted with a shower. It has a drawer couch with a pull-out bed in the living room and a fully equipped, open plan kitchen.

Undercover parking is available next to the house.

The spacious, covered patio has an outdoor braai that overlooks the small succulent garden.

The cottage is fitted with solar panels for lighting and refrigeration and has a gas stove and geysers. Oil lamps are also supplied for those romantic evenings.

Ribbok Cottage can accommodate up to 5 guests and comprises an open plan kitchen with an old but working wood stove, a small living room with a sleeper couch, 2 bedrooms, 1 with a double bed and the other with 2 single beds, each with en-suite bathroom fitted with a shower, toilet and basin.

On the patio, guests have braai facilities and old acacia trees give guests shade from the summer heat.

The Grootwaterval Lodge is perfect for a group of friends or a family. The spacious house, which is 7 km from the farmhouse, has no electricity but makes use of oil lamps for light.

In the main building, there is an open kitchen with everything guests will need including a gas fridge-freezer, gas-burner and an Aga stove. On cold winter nights, guests can enjoy the cosy indoor fireplace in the living room.

There are 4 bedrooms and can accommodate 8 guests at a time. Of the bedrooms, 2 have double beds, 2 have 2 single beds, all with en-suite bathrooms. Each room can be accessed via the patio with an outdoor fireplace where guests can enjoy a sundowner.
