One of the true great wilderness areas in South Africa, Baviaanskloof is a vast unspoilt region of the Eastern Cape Province. Directly translated as the ravine of the baboons, entering Baviaanskloof feels as though one has arrived in a prehistoric world, long before man left his footprint. The area has only 13 farms with some of the land completely untouched, and so ecologically diverse that there are 7 different biomes represented here.
Collectively, Baviaanskloof consists of a number of towns along the Baviaans River. The single road follows the river course for most of its 170km and crosses several dramatic mountain passes. Much of the unique plant life is found nowhere else and Baviaanskloof was recently granted World Heritage status by UNESCO.
If you feel the need to get back to nature, Baviaanskloof is a piece of South African paradise.
