About Vensterklip

On the wild West Coast, just 200kms north of Cape Town, close to the ocean and the renowned surf spot, Elands Bay, lies an extraordinarily beautiful stretch of wilderness.

Vensterklip is situated on a stretch of water known as Verlorenvlei, which is one of the largest natural wetlands along the West Coast of South Africa and the only coastal fresh water lake in the country. It is a designated Ramsar site of National Importance and provides a varied natural habitat for over 240 bird species.

Nearby Elands Bay is a cult surf spot famed for its six star left breaking wave. Despite the ice cold waters, surfers from all over the world make the pilgrimage to this savagely beautiful place. With heartbreakingly beautiful sunsets and magnificent crayfish, this is one of the key places on the wild Cape West Coast.

Accommodation

Vensterklip offers a choice of accommodation ranging from beautifully restored historic cottages, dating from the early 1800’s, to luxury campsites with en-suite bathrooms and braai areas, all overlooking the Vlei.

The charming historic accommodation includes The Scott House (sleeps six, two bathrooms, wonderful large stoep with vlei views). The Pump Station is an ideal romantic hideaway which sleeps two (but can also accommodate children) is set apart from the rest of the property and commands breathtaking views over Verlorenvlei. Fish Eagle and Pelican are two adjoining historic studios each sleeping two people.

Restaurant / Dining

The Tin Kitchen country restaurant serves delicious local organic meat and fish dishes in and around a 300 year old barn. Shaded seating areas and beautifully tended lawns add to the relaxed, rustic atmosphere.

Vensterklip is an ideal spot for bird watching, kayaking, horse riding, fishing, walking, surfing, rock art, wild flowers - or just enjoying a perfect piece of wilderness.

Verified reviewvery good

Great place, we camped in the overland camping, great views and very peaceful. The ablutions were clean and fully working along with the pool and braai areas. The pizzas we had there was some of the best pizza I've had (available only on fridays). The only thing that wasn't great was that the ground we camped on was mainly just sand, I would've prefered grass as the sand got hot and got everywhere, next time I think we will rather camp on one of the private camp sites as those sites are mainly grass.

Verified reviewpoor

We booked for 5 nights and stayed 1 night - the campsite is really overpriced, compared to what you pay at other campsites. The only positive is that the staff were very helpful and friendly. We stayed in a private camp site. The facilities were run down and in need of serious renovations. The braai area was full of cob webs and not properly cleaned. The bathroom was also in need of an upgrade (but it was clean). The biggest issue we had with the camp site was that it is situated 20 metres from the main road with alot of ongoing traffic during the day and night, with many trucks passing through during the night with screeching airbrakes as they realise they need to turn of at the Lamberts Bay turn off which is right opposite the entrance of Vensterklip. So don't expect a peaceful nights sleep. Futhermore the campsites are predominantly made up of sand with a few patches of grass. The camping rates are overpriced for the facilities and the location, considering that you can go and camp for half the price at top camping facilities that is tucked away in nature far away from traffic on a main road that is 20 metres behind the campsite....
