More info about Henly-on-Klip
Henley-on-Klip is a charming, rustic village situated 45km south of Johannesburg, South Africa. The Klip River (stone river) runs through the village studded with large unfenced properties set amongst green spaces.
Upon entering Henley-on-Klip, the eye is immediately drawn to vast green fields and old, established trees. One can see why the original landowner saw a likeness to his pretty English hometown of Henley-on-Thames and decided to substitute the word Thames with Klip. A weir was built in 1904 to provide space for a regatta, possibly in the hope of mimicking the UKs Henley Royal Regatta, a rowing event that began in 1839.
Henley-on-Klip strode onto the international stage when Oprah Winfrey opened a Leadership Academy for Girls in 2007 after her inspirational visit to the country in 2000. Academically gifted students are invited to attend the elite school.
The village is popular for outdoor activities and simply to enjoy a relaxed country getaway.
