BRAND NEW Eco Karoo Lodge which is nestled at the foot of majestic Joostenberg mountains to the west and endless great plains to the east, at the Northern tip of the Great Karoo. Eco Karoo Mountain Lodge is situated in the middle of the 4200 hectares Farm Knoffelfontein with it’s unique vastness, peace and tranquility. Eco Karoo Lodge is 100% off-the-grid, offering solar power and freshly pumped aquafir water. The Eco Karoo Mountain Lodge has a beauty of its own waiting for you to experience.

The space
The Farm name Knoffelfontein (in english, Garlic Fountain) was given to the farm in 1910 because of the natural spring found just behind the Eco Karoo Lodge, and home of the Tulbaghia violacea (Wild Garlic flower) growing freely on the farm.

The Hottentots and Bushmen, the last Stone Age people, shared the “Place of Great Dryness”

The Karoo, an ancient semi-desert area is a natural wonder of endless plains and intriguing rock layers. Rich fossil beds, spanning over 600 million years set the Karoo apart from any other place on earth and make it the curator of many secrets of evolution.

Several rock engravings dating from the Anglo-Boere war are scattered throughout the mountain range.
The Karoo is home to the largest variety of succulents on earth. Here you can find the richest desert floras in the world, and 40 per cent of these species are not found anywhere else on earth.

I'm a born and raised city girl, from Gauteng, who married a karoo farmer. The Farm Knoffelfontein (meaning garlic-fountain), is in the heart of the the Karoo, Luckhoff. My Husbands family has been sheep farming in this incredibly hot but exceedingly beautiful part of the Karoo for generations. With Eco Karoo Lodge, we wanted to do something that that would contribute not only to the farm, but to the community as a whole. With the lodge, we add new value to the farming business, create new job opportunities and offer a unique exclusive and Proudly South African experience.
