Welcome to Gannabos - Home of the Quiver Tree

Do you need an escape from the busy city life to spend some time alone with nature in its purest form?

Visiting Gannabos you will find what you have always been looking for - that special place in the heart of the Hantam Karoo where hospitality, peace and tranquillity soothe your soul.

It is the ideal getaway for nature lovers, hikers, star gazers, photographers and those longing for an authentic Hantam Karoo experience. Come and listen to the sounds of birds and wildlife and enjoy the breathtaking views of a mountain range covered with majestic quiver trees. This beautiful farm is the home of the largest quiver tree forest in the world.

Gannabos is part of the famous Rondekop/Naresie wildflower route, which is world renowned for its wildflower season. It is situated 35km outside Nieuwoudtville, which boasts a stunning waterfall, glacial pavement, bulb nursery and flower reserve. We are 50km from Loeriesfontein, well known for its Windmill Museum; 90km from Calvinia with its museum, historic Hantam House and the famous giant post box. Gannabos is also the perfect stay over for anyone travelling to other destinations such as Augrabies Falls, Richtersveld, Tankwa Karoo and the Kalahari.

PLEASE NOTE: There will be a limit set on the number of photographers and/or visitors entering the quiver tree forest between 18:00 and 06:00. A permit from the owner will be required at a cost of R250 per person should you be keen to experience the forest between these hours. Guests at Gannabos and Kareeboom have the privilege to come and go as they please, free of charge.

Please remember that as the quiver tree forest is situated on the farm, it is private property.
