Why Glen Harry is the perfect stopover retreat?

Why Glen Harry is the perfect stopover retreat?

Traveling down south but scared you’ll die of boredom before you get there?  We are perfectly located halfway in-between Johannesburg and Cape Town, offering a charming farm stay before you hit the big city. If you are going on a road trip you might as well as make sure it’s an experience to remember!

After a day of traveling there is no better place to unwind and relax, than staying just 1 hour outside of Graaff-Reinett. Glen Harry is located 8 hours from Johannesburg, 7 hours 30 minutes from Cape Town, and just 3 hours 20 minutes from Port Elizabeth.  Once you turn off the N9 it may feel like you are driving into the middle of nowhere, as the road follows the meandering Sunday river to Glen Harrys’ secluded oasis.  This picturesque drive sets the rustic tone and ambience for that’s to expect over the valley.

Upon arrival, you will be greeted by warm smiles and a complimentary drink as you take in the best stargazing South Africa has to offer. After sleeping the night away in a wilderness chalet, it’s up to you if want an action-packed few days or a lazy stay. Our beautiful salt-water pool is the ideal place to lie back, take in the sun, and listen to the silence, broken only by the sounds of birds and nature. What can be more relaxing on your short stopover stay than watching a couple of giraffes pass gently by or seeing a herd of antelope move up the hill as they graze.

We offer short stays from just 2 nights, to give you the chance to fully recover from the drive and experience the wonders of the Karoo. Traveling with a furry friend, not to worry, we are also dog friendly.

Make sure you take in the wonders of the Karoo with a short stay at Glen Harry, before heading onto your coastal destination.
