M11477 is a beautiful old manor house in Springbok, Namaqualand, at the foot of a rugged “koppie” where the first commercial mine in South Africa was started in 1852. Ideal as a stop-over between Cape Town and Windhoek or Upington, we cater for the discerning tourist and business traveller. Our bed & breakfast guesthouse is a 3 star, accredited pension and a 3-time semi-finalist in the AA Accommodation Awards. We offer excellent luxury accommodation and hospitality, something the Afrikaner people are well known for.
M11477 is a B&B guesthouse in the heart of Springbok, the centre of Namaqualand, "God's own Garden", in the Northern Cape province of South Africa. M11477 is an African Dream come true. The old manor house was lovingly restored by Petronella to its former colonial glory. With luxurious en-suite rooms where no luxury is spared and lazy afternoons can be spent around the swimming pool, enjoying a book on the verandah or under our shady old Jacaranda trees.
Springbok offers many attractions, historical sites, museums and fine restaurants. Springbok is very close to the famous Namaqualand wildflower reserves and to the remote Richtersveld National Park. Springbok is the gateway to Namibia, only 120 kms from the Orange River border.
Namaqualand is a wide and beautiful semi-desert region, dotted with giant granite boulder stacks. Between these 'koppies' the outstretched savannah lands is the home of God-fearing sheep- and goatfarmers. Springtime in Namaqualand is in August and September. Then the sandy plains become God's own Garden, when the wild spring flowers burst into a kaleidoscope of colour.
