Fantastic - The golf course is a real challange and spectacular. The estate is very neat and quiet. a good place to go and enjoy yourself.

Great escape - It had been our second visit to Clarens - totally love it. Great atmosphere, lovely, friendly people, fresh air, good food, lots of art to admire - what else could you want?! Just keep in mind that many places are closed on Mondays and Tuesdays. Otherwise awesome. Went to Golden Gate Park for hikes, to Basotho cultural village and Lionsrock Big Cat Sanctuary - all well worth the effort. Security is not really an issue and that felt good after coming from frantic Joburg. You'll find some of SA's top painters and artists in some of the galeries.
