Gariep Gardens Guest House is situated in the Gariep Dam holiday village and is approximately half way between CT and Johannesburg and only a 5 minute drive from the N1 Highway.

Gariep Dam Village was voted tourist town of the year in 2010. Exciting and yet crime free.
It is the ideal place to break your journey and enjoy the most beautiful surroundings as well as the crisp clean air of the Great Karoo. Ideal for the weary travellers or those wanting to break away from the city rush! Take a minute to look up at the clear night skies and realize that this is truly a special place. Trillions of stars, see the "milky way" and hear the silence and enjoy!!

Gariep Gardens is appropriately named due to its lush gardens, vines, fruit trees and stunning pool and lapa's.

It is absolutely ideal for the weary guest looking to break their journey - or those just wanting to break away from the city rush and spend some time enjoying the activities the area has to offer.

Gariep Gardens is made up of 3 very private, yet different units with each unit having its own parking bay and access to the fully enclosed pool and lapa area. Each unit has its very own private Lapa and braai area and we certainly believe that Gariep Gardens has the best that Gariep Dam has to offer.
