De Herberg in the friendly Karoo town of De Aar in South Africa, is an excellent bed and breakfast and guesthouse. The town is centrally situated on the main railroad lines between Johannesburg, Port Elizabeth, Cape Town and Namibia, and for a long time the junction at De Aar was the second busiest in South Africa.

De Herberg prides itself on superb service and the establishment boasts 3 stars from the Tourism Grading Council of South Africa. Guests are accommodated in 12 fully serviced rooms, all en suite (and provided with soap, shampoo, shower cap, body cream, towels and shoe sponges) and equipped with air-conditioning, DSTV, electric blankets, mini bar, heaters, telephone and internet facilities. One of the rooms provides self-catering facilities. Free room service is available at De Herberg in De Aar.

Food is one of the things De Herberg takes very seriously. A fully licensed restaurant, reasonably priced and with mouthwatering steaks is on the premises – so you don’t even have to drive a single kilometre after a lovely Karoo meal.

De Aar owes its name to the many underground water reservoirs in the area. It is an area with a rich and interesting history. Olive Schreiner, the famous writer and feminist, used to live in De Aar and found the clean Karoo air to be very healthy. This part of South Africa also saw action during the Anglo-Boer War and you can visit the Garden of Remembrance where many British soldiers killed during battle are buried.

The area around De Aar has many examples of Khoi San rock engravings (especially on the two farms Brandfontein and Nooitgedacht. The De Aar area is also popular for hunting, as pastime popular among many South Africans. You can also visit Sam Mooi who makes African drums and watch a pulsating Xhosa dance exhibition.
