Red Stone Hills guest farm near Calitzdorp is nestled within what must be one of the most spectacular geological landscapes in the whole South Africa. The striking reddish-hued koppies which surrounds the farm are constructed from iron-rich conglomerates which were deposited by turbulent rivers in the Cretaceous Period, some 130 millions years ago. In a sense these blood-red rocks reflect the painful and energetic birth of the new African continent. Come experience genuine Karoo hospitality, spectacular view and breathtaking tranquility at our guest farm.
Our cottages are 120 m apart with spectacular views of the river, the red stone hills and the vineyards. In our cottages are fully equipped kitchens, television with satellite and fireplaces.
Our farm is situated between Oudtshoorn and Calitzdorp, 6km on the Kruisrivier turn-off, near the foot of the Swartberg mountain, en-route the beautiful scenic drive to the Cango Caves.
A circular route combines our farm with other major tourist attractions in the area such as the Cango Wildlife Farm, Ostrich Show Farms, Calitzdorp hot springs, the Swartberg Pass and Meirings Poort (The Gorge).
