With an extra two weeks of scheduled lock down in place, taking us to the end of April, we’re doing our best at running a completely empty guest house. There is always much work to do, and we need to ensure that our cottages are not falling prey to a vociferous nature. We’re running taps, switching on geysers, opening windows, checking for bats, etc… to keep the nature taking back while we turn our back.
We’re also looking at the future, when hopefully we’ll be able to reopen Wolverfontein, and welcome our beautiful guests back into the Klein Karoo. The slow return to the new normal will not happen overnight, but we feel positive that we’ll be ready for guests seeking respite from cabin fever conditions.
With the massive decline in international visitors, mostly due to travel restrictions imposed on international flights, we hope to see an upsurge in local tourism.
We’re especially interested in exploring long term bookings for an artists in residence programme. If you’re a writer, or a fine artist, we offer a wonderful seclusion from a world unhinged. The added bonus is that we’re ideally situated in a remote area, giving you ample opportunity to be outdoors without compromising any social distancing rules that may still be in place.
There is also a friendly well stocked SPAR, and excellent pharmacy in Ladismith, which is our nearest village.
The pandemic will not be going away in a blink of an eye, and the rules of lock down may change overnight, so in this regard we are open to negotiating rates should this occur.
Please contact us directly for more information regarding our artists in residence programme, as we plan to be open again beginning of May 2020.
