The Padloper is named after the smallest Tortoise in South Africa. This cabin may be smaller

than the others, but it is large in character. It sleeps 2 people.


Set high over the hill it is the perfect private getaway. It is almost hidden by bush and surrounded by the most beautiful views. Newly refurbished and retro in style, it has all the features and feel of living in a cabin built 60 years ago. It does have a few modern additions, like hot water on tap, lights and a fridge powered by the abundance of the Little Karoo sunshine.


It’s only about 500m from the bottom of the hill but a 4x4 is essential for the climb.


By prior arrangement with Jeff, he can transport up there.
