Mooiplaas Guest House is on a family-run working ostrich farm and is a great place to get away from it all and relax in the heart of the Little Karoo. With the commercial ostrich farms, Cango Caves, Cango wildlife ranch and Meerkat Magic Conservation Project, the Little Karoo is a popular stop off for families, and Mooiplas is a very family friendly property.
The dining room offers fine local cuisine and serves a full breakfast, picnic baskets on request and a four course dinner menu.
