Skitterland - true style and luxury for the discerning traveler. Come inside and get a glimpse of what you can expect when you visit Sutherland’s one and only Skitterland Guesthouse.
At Skitterland it is all about YOU, because you deserve nothing but the very best. We outshine the rest by far. Sutherland in general and Skitterland in particular is not just a pretty face, oh no! Here you find not only the coldest spot in South Africa, but also the cleanest air and the biggest telescope Africa has to offer.
We do nothing in half-measures, because we go all-out to give you the very best in accommodation and cuisine. If you need assistance with booking dinners, world famous Observatory (incl. SALT) & star gazing we will gladly assist.
Luxury is the key word that best describes Skitterland. Luxury, combined with old-world charm and surroundings is a combination that is not easy to ignore or forget. When staying at Skitterland you are considered to be a guest equal to at least a statesman, and you are treated accordingly.
Friendly service coupled with fantastic catering and cleaning services will ensure an unsurpassed experience. You see, we want you to come back again and again, and bring your friends too!
At Skitterland we do not consider ourselves hosts only, we prefer interaction where you can get a glimpse into a bygone era. An era of NP van Wyk Louw, WEG Louw and other prominent figures that made the Karoo and Cape Colony the place to be a scant hundred years or so in the past, and a preferred destination ever since.
