The Owl House Backpackers offers you a clean, bright, welcoming home from home in the heart of Nieu Bethesda. It is on the main street, a five-minute walk from the Owl House.
Sip sundowners in the garden and watch the sky fill with stars. Curl up next to the wood-burner and enjoy the carefully selected backpackers' wines. Treat yourself to the home-made bread and cottage cheese, or braai some delicious Karoo lamb with fresh herbs picked from the permaculture garden. Take a dip with the goldfish in the dam; hire bikes and explore the Karoo. Book tours to Bushman Paintings, Fossil walks, the Mountain Zebra Park and the Valley of Desolation. And, if you decide to stay for a while, catch up with the outside world every now and then on the Internet...
