Situated in the picturesque Eastern Cape and sharing two borders with the Groendal Wilderness Area, Kleinrivier offers you the ideal escape from the pressures of city life. Redefine the word “tranquillity” as you explore pristine mountain fynbos, rest in the shade of riverine forests or stroll through Karoo tropical thicket . Be startled by the thunder of kudu breaking cover and amazed at how nimbly klipspringer leap from boulder to boulder.
Kleinrivier is a paradise for hikers, birders and those who simply want to escape other people for a while.We have not introduced any of the big five so it is safe to walk and explore our many trails on your own. The scenery in the Kleinrivier gorge is spectacularly beautiful and there are frequent pools to tempt you in on a hot summer day. If you are lucky you may encounter klipspringer, kudu or other game that we have introduced.
Accommodation options include lodges, chalets, tents and campsites, each entwined with nature, each offering a unique wilderness experience.
* Indoor Fireplace
* Swimming Pool
Explore the remote Winterhoek mountains while experiencing the Karoo fauna and flora by simply walking in the opposite direction. The mountains are clad in this unique flora comprising literally thousands of different fynbos species. Five species of antelope occur naturally. Reptiles are king in this dry environment, most common are the 'Bloukop koggelmanders' which scuttle out of your way on the trails. The accommodation is ideal for birders; if you are not into exercise then just wait on your deck and the birds will come to you. For those with a little more energy there are a number of trails to explore and mountain pools to swim in.
