Victoria West is in the heart of the Great Karoo, about 615km from Cape Town. The area boasts a fantastic variety of bird species for nature lovers with several trails, including the renowned evening walk which lends itself to a new experience and romance, especially if one is lucky enough to take advantage of the moon when full.
The Karoo is famous for our hunting facilities and a wide variety of sort after buck species. If hunting is not your sport, game viewing is available where unforgetable shots are substituted with a lens and binoculars. Bowling greens and tennis courts are available for those of you who are more interrested in social sports.
