About Kleinrivier Mountain Escapes

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.

Accommodation

Our Tented Camp, Stone Mountain Lodge and Self-catering Cabins (Dassies) have been designed and situated to give nature lovers of all ages a unique wilderness experience.

Wake up to the sound of birds chirping and dassies scrambling over the rocks overhead.

See individual unit descriptions and photos below to assist you with making your choice.

Activities & Attractions

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.

Pepper Tree Cottage

This newly renovated cottage overlooks our dam and is one of the best spots to sit and watch the sun set as the fire blazes and a glass of red wine rests lightly between your fingers. There are three bedrooms, one has a king and a single bed, one has a queen bed and the other a single bed. The bathroom is fitted with a shower, toilet, and washbasin. The living area is large enough to accommodate a larger group than the 6 that can sleep in Pepper Tree, so if you are planning a celebratory weekend with a few friends book in here and make this your rendezvous point. The kitchen is well equipped with a 5 plate gas hob but the only electricity is 12V for the lighting and fridge.

My husband, 5 year old son and I had a magical 4 nights at Kleinrivier. The farm is incredible with so many amazing hikes to choose from and options to swim. Dassie 4 cabin was peaceful and private - a perfect escape from the city. Next time we’d like to book Black Eagle Tented Camp - it looks phenomenal.
