Onse Rus Guest House
Name
Cape Karoo, Prince Albert

Onse Rus Guest House has been at the heart of Prince Albert since 1852, capturing its warm and friendly ambience under its thatched roof. Having evolved into a comfortable three star guesthouse, you’ll immediately feel at home as you slow down to the relaxed pace of country living.

 

Each of the five en-suite rooms offers their own special character, with private entrances and patios away from the main house. A sound night’s sleep awaits in comfy beds with crisp cotton and mohair blankets. Here time is suspended in the dry and crisp Karoo air. The cool sparkling pool provides a sanctuary on hot summer days. The shady garden has braai facilities and a bar. The dining room has a warm fireplace for winter, and our library in the guest lounge offers books to suit every taste

 

Breakfast is served in the garden under the trees in summer and near a roaring fire in the main guest lounge in winter. The generous Onse Rus farmhouse breakfast is a real treat: homemade muesli, fresh farm dairy products, fruit juice, bacon and eggs with mouth watering local preserves... and just wait until you taste the cream!

 

For the adventurous Onse Rus offers tailor made trips to Gamkaskloof known as “Die Hel,” a secluded valley in the Swartberg. We depart in a 4x4 vehicle and stop for a light picnic break on the way. The spectacular mountain scenery tends to lengthen the traveling time, especially for those with an interest in photography and bird life. The day is spent exploring this isolated valley, barely long enough to gain an insight into a way of life long forgotten.

 

An interlude for lunch with Annetjie Joubert, who was born and bred in Gamkaskloof, adds a personal touch to this ‘must do’ trip. Nestled at the foothills of the Swartberg is Vrisch Gewaagt. Here there is Time - time to appreciate the changing colors of the mountains, the mystery and magic of the veld plants and the rustle of creatures who dwell there - against a backdrop of eagles soaring amongst the peaks of the Mountain.

 

Take time to experience the simple beauty of Vrisch Gewaagt: this is a place to hang your hat and feast your soul.
