About The Farm

A historical Karoo farm situated in the Camdeboo Conservancy outside Graaff-Reinet

Langfontein, situated 50km from Graaff-Reinet, is an oasis in the Karoo surrounded by mountains and picturesque scenery, infused with silence and old world charm.  The manor house was built in 1860 by former president of the ZAR, Jacobus Burgers. A wagon-load of yellowwood from the Knysna forest, at the cost of R250 pounds, was used for the floors and ceilings of this stately Karoo home.

Farm buildings have been carefully restored to their former glory capturing the atmosphere of a bygone era with al the necessary luxuries to ensure a comfortable stay. Cottages are individually decorated, kitchens are fully equipped, spacious bedrooms has crisp, white percale linen to ensure a good sleep in the clean Karoo air. Lounges with comfortable couches and scatter cushions with feather inners, fireplaces, veranda’s and bathrooms with Victorian baths and showers ensure an unforgettable stay away from everything. Enjoy this piece of unspoilt earth, clear skies and bright stars.  An ideal environment for children to play, to enjoy endless walks and spend precious time with loved ones.

The area is completely malaria free and boasts sheep, cattle and the breeding of game like disease free buffalo, sables and roan antelope.
