Self-Catering Accommodation in the Karoo Where You Can Bring Your Furry, Four-Legged Friends

The June holidays are upon us, which means it is time to plan that long overdue Karoo road trip to Graaff-Reinet that you have been so eager to take with the kids and your partner. But what about your furry, four-legged friends? If you are like most animal-loving South Africans, then you know how hard it is going on holiday without them. Sure, you could book your canines into a kennel for a week, drop them off with a friend, or get a stranger to look after your house, but would your holiday be the same? Probably not.

Once upon a time, it was difficult to take our furry companions on holiday with us. Now, there are more pet-friendly establishments than ever, and our self-catering accommodation in Graaff-Reinet happens to be one of them. At KarooRus, we encourage a pet-friendly world, because we believe that all animals contribute to a healthy physical and emotional life. And Graaff-Reinet just so happens to be the perfect holiday town for a family with a pooch that loves adventure just as much as the kids.

As the oldest town in the Eastern Cape, Graaff-Reinet offers families, couples, and groups of friends with pets a host of things to do. From hiking in the Camdeboo National Park, which is home to 249 bird species, 43 species of mammals, and 336 plant species; and touring the Valley of Desolation, which is South Africa’s geological phenomenon; to canoeing, kayaking, and river rafting with your buddy by your side. Graaff-Reinet caters to everyone, including canines.

Walking Distance from Restaurants, Boutiques, and Markets

In the heart of Graaff-Reinet, only a mere five-minute walk from all the trendy, organic food markets, art galleries, and shops, our guest house is a modern, impeccably managed guest house that takes great pride in its self-catering accommodation. Some pet-friendly B&Bs are just better than others, and our self-catering B&B stands head and shoulders above the rest.

At KarooRus, we offer guests the choice of seven newly renovated family accommodation suites that boast en-suites, wooden floors, cotton linen and towels, a flat screen with DStv, and a fully equipped kitchenette with a dining room table and chairs. While most of our accommodation suites are perfect for families of four, our wheelchair-friendly Granaatbos and Ngunibos suites are ideal for families of six to eight people. Each self-catering suite has its own undercover parking and an enclosed braai area, making it safe and secure for pets.

Our Pet Policy

At KarooRus, we love all animals and are one of the few self-catering guest houses in the Karoo that welcome all four-legged pets, no matter the size or breed. While each accommodation suite has its own secure courtyard, pets sleep inside, which is why we request that you bring their bed, favourite toys, dog towels, basics, and treats (after all, it is their holiday too). We also ask that your dogs are free of ticks and fleas, and that their collar has a tracker or mobile number.
