Toerboer Jnr is all about learning through experiences and family connection. Travelling with your children, especially with an itinerary designed with the family in mind, offers a platter of new experiences: people, sights, sounds and tastes that could never be fully appreciated any other way.
Our dream has always been to welcome you to a place of our own, in each of our favourite parts of South Africa. And we are thrilled to have started in the Karoo Heartland, where we have bought, and are restoring, a 170-year-old home with three adjoining cottages. Our home in Graaff Reinet will always be open to travellers and we can’t wait to give you the warmest Karoo welcome.
