Osfontein Guest House

These antique stone corbelled houses appear only in the Karoo in an attractive small area. They were the first houses built by the Voortrekkers in the early 1800’s. Due to a shortage of building materials such as wood in the Karoo they built the houses entirely of stone, even the roof, which was well insulated, being warm in winter and deliciously cool in summer.
