We stayed over last night. Luckily for us the skies opened up. Nico's knowledge of the night skies was amazing. This is truly a great farm experience. If you looking for something different, this is a highly recommended experience.

Our kids had a wonderful time there. Although the 26km dirt road needs grading as it was very corrugated and we almost turned back. Our boys enjoyed the animals there, horse riding and heading out to the escarpment in a 4x4. A fun day.

Blesfontein is a very special working farm where you can escape back to nature. They have a vaiety of animals on the farm. They offer Horse riding and several other activities. One feel as if you can breathe in the lovely Karoo surroundings.
