Blesfontein (South 32º28.077’ , East 20º26.160’) is situated 28 km South West of Sutherland in the Northern Cape. About 5 km from the homestead is the escarpment of the Roggeveld mountains. When you stand at the picnic site on the edge, you will have a breath taking view of the Tanqua valley and Cedar Bergs in the distance.
On Blesfontein you may see Blesbok, Springbok, Duiker, Steenbok, Grey Rheebuck, Zebra and Black Wildebeest.
Several smaller species like the African Wild cat, Lynx, Mongoose, Porcupine, Black back jackal, Suricate, Rock rabbit (Dassie) and the Skunk occur on the farm. We have seen more than 30 bird species and several reptiles.
The tame farmyard animals are harmless and friendly. Although all the animals are fed regularly you are allowed to feed them at any time of the day.
Self catering accommodation available from R 200 per adult per night.
