  • "Wat n pure karoo-bederf"

    23 August 2017

    "Jakhalsdans is n egte karooplaas met pragtige luukse eenhede. Vanaf die intrapslag word jy hartlik ontvang en beleef egte karoo gasvryheid, selfs die honde is vriendelik! Jakhalsdans is n plekkie wat jy nie mag misry as jy die mooi Loxton Area besoek Nie. Maak ook seker jy bestel die karoolam braaipak om op die stoep te braai, wat n bederf!"

  • "The Karoo at its best"

    28 December 2016

    "We were warmly welcomed after a long drive from Johannesburg. Our self-catering unit in the cottage was very spacious, with a lovely patio overlooking a dam. Birdlife is prolific, with a flock of the endemic Black-headed Canary entertaining us on the bushes behind the cottage. The next morning we had a leisurely breakfast, and then set off down the road to Beaufort West. We did not see another vehicle for the next 90 minutes, and revelled in the endless Karoo vistas. Definitely a place to be remembered; we promised ourselves more time when we return to this beautiful area."

  • "Ware Karoo gasvryheid"

    28 September 2016

    "Jenette het ons met absolute gasvryheid verwelkom en ons verblyf onvergeetlik gemaak deur die wonderlikste aandete te voorsien. Die dennelanings, springbokke, zebras, skape en pragtige tuin het ure se afleiding verskaf en die 2 lieflike honde het ons stap-uitstappies baie opwindend gemaak. Die akkomodasie was voortreflik en die beste van ons 2 en half weke toer deur Suid Afrika."
