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.

As owners of the Gannabos Quiver Tree Forest we have erected a fence to protect this conservation area for future generations. Access to the forest can be gained by contacting the owners and paying an entry fee. The forest will be open to the public during flower season with a R50/person entry fee which includes an informative brochure. Gannabos guests will have free 24 hour access to the forest. Anyone wishing to do night photography must be a guest at Gannabos unless we are fully booked, in which case, a night permit may be purchased from the owner for R250.

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