This sanctuary offers an escape from the hustle and bustle of urban life. Immerse yourself in tranquillity as you traverse pristine mountain fynbos, seek shade under riverine forests, or wander through tropical Karoo thicket. Witness the majestic thunder of kudu and marvel at the leaps of klipspringer from one boulder to another.

The self-catering accommodation (including stone chalets and glamping units) features a fully equipped kitchenette, indoor seating, dining area and fireplace, along with a private bathroom. Each unit is strategically positioned to optimise the stunning views spanning across and up the Kleinrivier Valley.

Kleinrivier Mountain Escapes Setting

Kleinrivier Mountain Escapes offers an idyllic retreat for hikers, birdwatchers, and those seeking a peaceful getaway in the beautiful Eastern Cape province of South Africa. The absence of the Big 5 ensures a safe environment for solo exploration along the numerous trails. The Kleinrivier gorge offers breathtaking scenery, with inviting pools to cool off during hot summer days. Visitors may encounter various wildlife such as klipspringer, kudu, impala, and wildebeest while exploring.

Venturing into the remote Winterhoek mountains offers a chance to immerse oneself in the lush Karoo fauna and flora. The mountains are dotted with a diverse array of fynbos species, totalling thousands. Additionally, five species of antelope inhabit the area naturally. Reptiles, particularly the 'Bloukop koggelmanders,' dominate this arid landscape, often crossing paths with hikers along the trails.

Kleinrivier Mountain Escapes impact highlights

They acquired the property 17 years ago when it functioned as a commercial farm. Over the years, all farming activities ceased in order to restore areas affected by overgrazing. Internal fences were removed, and indigenous game species were reintroduced to the land, fostering a natural habitat. Although not operating as a game farm and refraining from promoting such activities, hunting is strictly prohibited. The property now hosts various wildlife species like wildebeest, impala, kudu, waterbuck, and nyala, all reintroduced by the owners. Additionally, they have actively undertaken invasive species removal, targeting plants like pines and wattles, to encourage the growth of native vegetation. Kleinrivier Mountain Escapes accommodations also runs off solar power.
