Win An Activity-Packed Overnight Stay For Two In Matjiesfontein

Competition closes

Until 27 October

Prize is redeemable

28 October 2020 – 10 December 2021

Total prize value

R3 780

One lucky reader stands the chance of winning a memorable trip for two to the Klein Karoo courtesy of Wine Flies.

A tiny town on the fringe of the Karoo, Matjiesfontein is perhaps most famous for its one-and-only hotel, the exquisite colonial-era Lord Milner Hotel, built in 1899. Declared a national heritage site in 1975, the town’s other attractions include a train station that’s notably a stopover for the Blue Train and Rovos Rail, transport museum, old-school post office and fire station, complete with a vintage fire engine, and an iconic pub (whose walls no doubt contain many stories).

Lord Milner Hotel Matjiesfontein

Like stepping into a timewarp, The Lord Milner feels like a scene straight out of The Grand Budapest Hotel. The staff’s fantastically eccentric Victorian-era outfits (think bonnets and bellhop hats), coupled with vintage furniture and a general feeling of faded grandeur, enhance its otherworldly charm.

Matjiesfontein Coffee House

It’s here where you’ll be spending the night, following a jam-packed day of adventures on your way to this heritage-drenched Karoo town.

The Wine Flies Karoo Desert Tour kicks off with a historical mini walking tour around Cape Town, followed by coffee (or drinks) at an iconic local pub. Then it’s all aboard your private tour bus, complete with a personal guide, before setting off towards Rawsonville for a wine-tasting, cupcake pairing and lunch at the quaint Kirabo wine farm.

Kirabo Wine Farm Rawsonville

Once lunch is done, you’ll set off towards Matjiesfontein through the scenic plains of the Klein Karoo. Upon arrival, you’ll be treated to a very quirky bus tour, where you’ll gain firsthand insight into the unusual anecdotes of the town’s unique history.

Matjiesfontein Klein Karoo

It’s then on to refreshments at the local pub, accompanied by live music, before enjoying a starlit Karoo-lamb braai for dinner, and a spooky nighttime tour of the haunted museum.

Wake up to a hearty hotel breakfast, before embarking on a graveyard visit and beginning your exciting adventure back home through the deserted Koo valley – where you’ll be shown the art of biltong making and enjoy a lunch at Oupa Batt se Winkel (the oldest farm stall in South Africa!).

Make room in your suitcase for a pitstop at Montagu Dried Fruit & Nuts HQ, and snack on your newly gathered padkos as you make your way lazily back towards Cape Town, passing historical monuments and sweeping vistas as you go.

Good to know
If you don’t win our competition, you can still enjoy this trip, with a special rate of just R1 880 per person.

    I stayed in the Matjiesfontein Hotel for one night very long ago – long before it was upgraded and became famous. Even then it was wonderful – especially since it was late on a very cold winter night. I was travelling from Boksburg to Hermanus and could not find a room in hotels in Beaufort-West and Laingsburg.
    It will be absolutely fantastic if I can experience the “new” Matjiesfontein Hotel plus all the other interesting stuff included in the tour.

When I am in the Karoo, I don’t feel pain or sick, as the climate totally agrees with my conditions. The hotel is also stunning & I love the idea that it is haunted. Would love the prize.
