Bosvarkie Bush Pub, Calitzdorp

Bosvarkie logo

As far as bush pubs goes, the Bosvarkie must surely be one of the neat­est bush pubs that I have ever seen. To say that this pub/​campsite is immac­u­late would be a gross understatement.

The whole place has been hand built by Mac and his fam­ily with dead trees found in the area. This gives this pub a really great “feel” with­out mak­ing any­thing look messy.

The camp­site has six de-​marked sites on beau­ti­fully man­i­cured lawns. There is also two per­ma­nent car­a­vans that can be rented for those that are not so keen on doing the “tent thing”. If you decide to use the car­a­van option, all you have to do is bring your­self and with prior arrange­ment the guys at the pub will even do all you meals for you.

Appar­ently they are very well known for their sump­tu­ous steaks, but unfor­tu­nately we did not have enough time to try it.

Mac has grown up in the area, so there is not much that he is not aware of hap­pen­ing in this region. Speak to him to find out where the best fish­ing, pic­nic and 4×4 spots are.

The Bosvarkie also boasts with a stage, where they have hosted bands such as DJ Ossewa.

If you are in the Cal­itz­dorp area, and have time on your hands, do your­self a favour and take a detour past the Bosvarkie. Not only will you get to see more of our beau­ti­ful coun­try, you will also see one of the best kept secrets in bush pubs for many miles around.
