Jovali is a highly recommended property for self catering in Clarens for tourists visiting the Thabo Mofutsanyana region.

About Jovali

Jovali is situated on four hectares of the most stunning countryside surroundings only six kilometres and less than 10 minutes from the Clarens Village. There are two self catering units, each beautifully and tastefully appointed and accommodated at ground level quite separate from the main house. It’s sheer convenience, comfort, privacy and space afford you the ideal getaway to relax and enjoy the countryside.

Clarens Self Catering

Each studio unit (sleeps 2 to 3 persons) has a room with a view and is completely self contained with:

• Luxurious bedroom with Queen-size and day bed
• Comfortable sitting area with DStv
• Dining table and four chairs
• Under floor heating
• Fully equipped kitchenette
• Bathroom with bath and shower
• Patio with table and chairs and Weber braai (charcoal provided)

Experience the constantly changing moods of Mt Horeb while relaxing on the patio overlooking the mountain and the Golden Gate Valley, or go for a walk down to the perennial Klein Caledon River or on one of the many trails in the area. At night enjoy what could be the best view of the Southern sky, all the while soaking in the blissful quiet, peace and tranquility.


Clarens is a small hamlet situated in the Eastern Free State, South Africa. Clarens is renowned for its spectacular sandstone cliffs, mountainous scenery and sandstone buildings. The village is an artist's Mecca with 17 resident artists and 19 art galleries. This picturesque village bestows a European sense of being overseas.

Numerous restaurants and shops are there to fulfil almost anyone's needs. A short 20 kilometre drive takes you to the Golden Gate Reserve where you can see wildlife such as blesbuck, wildebeest, zebra, birds of prey (in particular the Cape Vulture and the Bearded Vulture). Clarens is a haven for the adventure seeker - white water rafting, horseback riding, quad bike treks, abseiling, mountain bike tracks, 4x4 routes and hiking plus a new 18 hole golf course.

A more leisurely activity is offered through fly fishing and star gazing - one of the best views of the southern night sky in South Africa.

Aukeline is a wonderful host. Quiet, secluded, safe, big open space to go walk and a small stand by the river to go and enjoy ultimate quiet. Clarens center is around 2km away. I highly recommend this as an option for accommodation.
