Through the little town of Calitzdorp, past stretches of rambling vineyards and orchards, tucked away in a lush valley in the depths of the Klein Karoo, lies the original farmhouse of Daniel’s Kraal. The homestead was built in 1836 with its thatched roof, thick walls and expansive veranda, the house holds a tangible nostalgia, that transports its guests to a time of sweeter, simpler living. The farmhouse rests on 2300 hectares of pristine wilderness; home to hundreds of species of succulents, plants, birds and wildlife. The ‘Little’ Karoo is one of the country’s most subtle, yet magnificent, desert jewels. The air seems crisper, the morning sun welcomes you and the only sounds to greet your ears are birdsong and the hurried whisper of wind through the trees.

The interior is the picture of classic farm style with it’s generously volumed living spaces, plush couches, original fireplaces and rich fabrics. Daniel’s Kraal boasts a special treasure trove of loved collectables; old books, found trinkets, foraged fossils and vintage china, have all found their proper place in this secret part of the world.

The modernised bathrooms and fully-equipped kitchen make for easy and chic country living. The surrounding vineyards, groves of olive trees and the Swartberg mountain range, provide the idyllic vista for G&Ts beneath the silver oak by the pool, and on winter evenings, locally produced port by the crackling fireplace. Come nightfall, look to the skies and be awed by a kaleidoscope of stars.

This is a home that is made to be lived in, a home to be enjoyed and shared. Whether you’re looking to return to a simpler state of being, hike, walk, birdwatch or explore, Daniel’s Kraal offers its guests something truly magical.

    Danielskraal was truly a fantastic hideaway – the homestead gives a magical, vast view over the valley – we had lazy afternoons on the lawn playing croquet and following the entertainment of the baboon troops in the distance, morning coffee on the veranda paging through all the wonderful books and watching the birdlife, and evenings were spent at the firepit chatting and stargazing — the farm allows you to take long strolls on the country roads to get in touch with nature — the house offers it’s old charm to be explored while all the leisurely details synonymous with the Perfect Hideaways' standards were well endowed — Chris was a perfect gentlemanly host and the staff were only a pleasure to have for extra help

    We have had a fantastic few days here at the farm. Wish we didn’t have to leave – will surely be back in the future. Sally, Chris and the staff were outstanding. Thanks for everything.
