Toerboer Cottages and Tours



Toerboer is a tour operator based in Graaff-Reinet that, apart from our expertly designed small group African tours (southern and East Africa), offer unique local Karoo tours.


These include:

• Starlight dinners (combined with a guided visit to the Valley of Desolation);

• Traditional Karoo lunch (combined with a guided visit to the Valley of Desolation);

• Mobile camping (including our special star-bed);

• Nieu-Bethesda, Richmond and Murraysburg;

• Mountain Zebra National Park,  Addo Elephant National Park and the Baviaanskloof Wilderness;

• Graaff-Reinet town and Umasizakhe tours;

• Guided mountain bike tours (with breakfast) or bicycle rental.


In addition to our immersive and unique experiences, we also have three self-catering (catering available on request or combine with the above) units available in one of Graaff-Reinet’s oldest houses. Our charming 170-year old Karoo cottage, named The Toerboer Cottages, is located in North Street (central and part of the historical heart of Graaff-Reinet).


Latest Addition – Afrikanis Rum tasting room at Hello You Restaurant, Somerset Street.


We look forward to welcoming you with typical Karoo hospitality.
