I ♥ Beaufort West

I ♥ Beaufort West

Hi, I’m Elsolique from Old House Guesthouse in Beaufort West in the Karoo.

Beaufort West IS BEST KNOWN FOR its unique Karoo hospitality.

GET YOUR PICTURE TAKEN AT the Chris Barnard Museum; Chris Barnard was the famous heart surgeon who performed the worlds first heart transplant.

THE BEST Karoo PICTURES CAN BE TAKEN AT the Karoo National Park.

OTHER HAPPY SNAPS AT our beautiful pear trees on the Main Road.

WHEN THE WEATHER’S GOOD, I LIKE TO be outside in the fresh Karoo air.

WHEN THE WEATHER’S BAD, I LIKE TO visit friends.

I THINK THE BEST TIME OF YEAR TO VISIT IS in the winter, BECAUSE our summers have extreme heat.
