Overview

Welcome to Stonebreaker Country Lodge in Cango Valley's picturesque Schoemanspoort , 15 km from Oudtshoorn on the main road (R328) to the world famous Cango Caves . Stonebreaker Country Lodge is centrally located in respect of all tourist attractions such as the Cango Ostrich Farm (2 km), Cango Wildlife Ranch (12 km), Swartberg Pass (18 km), Rust -en- Vrede Waterfall (16 km) and Gamkaskloof. The thatched Lodge is fitted with modern conveniences, elegantly furnished en suite rooms with an African ambiance to make you really feel at home. Listen to the peaceful murmur of the nearby river while you relax in the sparkling swimming pool with unspoilt views on the surrounding mountains. A half hour walk on the registered succulent trail, will work up your appetite for a hearty traditional farm-style breakfast. Lunch and dinner are also available on request . We will give you personal attention and unique Klein Karoo hospitality. Don't be surprised if from the nearby mountains, you hear the distinct whistle call of the Klipspringers in the moonlight or at sunrise.


Schoemanspoort is half way between Oudtshoorn and the Cango Caves. Surrounded by mountains and the Grobbelaar's River runs through the valley. The name "Stonebreaker" originates from a Stone Breaker Machine ( England ), which was used until 1962 at the quarry on this property. Stonebreaker Country Lodge was built in 1997 consisting of thatched buildings to blend in with nature. The main theme is African with special attention to luxury. Stonebreaker Country Lodge is situated in a very safe environment.
Not one criminal incident has occurred!

Delicious farm style breakfasts are served either in the African dining room or on the open air deck or on the thatch covered stoep . The views are magnificent - with star studded skies at night.

Light lunch and dinner can be served on request, as well as a traditional barbeque on the stoep . Three-course meals consisting of five types of meat including ostrich fillet, or a home cooked dinner with leg of Karoo Super Lamb, Bobotie , Kudu steak, Ostrich Neck and other Ostrich dishes are also available at the cosy Old Mill Restaurant across the river.

Experience the hidden fascinating valley first hand where a small proud community lived in isolation for more than 100 years. Access was only on foot or horseback, and harvests of dried fruit and wild honey were carried out by pack animals. Fortunately a road was carved into the valley in 1962. Two hours of scenic driving let you enter the valley with Elands Pass, dropping nearly 1000m to the valley. Gamkaskloof, now a nature reserve, is approximately 20 km long and 600 meters wide.


Guests are accommodated in modern thatched chalets with twelve (12) luxurious big en suite rooms. Our charming honeymoon suite promises you a special unforgettable experience. Privacy is ensured - the units are at least 15 meters away from the main complex, and has covered porches with uninterrupted views of the majestic Poort .

Double (Cloud 9 Superior Comfort), single and family rooms are all en suite. Rooms are all equipped with DSTV, Tea/Coffee facilities including rusks, hair drier, clock radio, own bathroom with large glass-shower, towels etc., electronic heating as well as roof fans. Bar fridge stocked with wine, beers and soft drinks per norm.

Having eight double rooms, two family rooms and two single rooms we ensure personal attention and heart-warming hospitality, with picturesque mountain and landscape views while you hear the peaceful murmur of the river.

Guest Comments

Guess my stay would've been much better, if was not the following:

> The info booklet states that one can eat at Old Mill restaurant across the road, which seems to not be valid anymore since I was turned away with the reason they don't cater for people who don't stay with them, so I had to drive the +/- 15km back to town to get dinner.

> Roof was leaking after the hard rain - luckily I got home in time to move the bed from where the water was dripping down.

> After the rain the water was a brown colour and remained like that throughout, even after having the tap running for about 5 minutes and thereafter running the shower.
