About Kleinrivier Wilderness

Situated in the picturesque Eastern Cape and sharing two borders with the Groendal Wilderness Area, Kleinrivier Wilderness offers you the opportunity to escape the pressures of city life.

Kleinrivier offers campsites and chalets entwined with nature that provide a unique wilderness experience for nature lovers of all ages. Black Eagle Camp offers tents hidden between the trees with lovely views of the river. Stone Mountain Lodge has spectacular views over the Karoo and surrounding mountains, boasts a lovely swimming pool, and can be reached by a 4 x 4 or hiking trail only. Soetdorings Camping Site is situated around a man-made rock pool under the trees and has a covered lapa with a stove and fireplace. Dassiekrans Self-catering offer three private chalets, each with a private plunge pool. All accommodation has bathroom facilities.

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.

Safari: Guests with their own 4x4 are welcome to undertake game drives into the game camp and up the mountain to the plateau. Better still there is a range of hiking trails for all abilities with labelled trees and stunning scenery.

                                  We stayed in Dassie 1 and it was PERFECT. We wanted for nothing. Piping hot shower with a view - birds checking you out through the sliding door! We sat around the fire in the fire pit and braaied and talked and checked out the stars until late. We so enjoyed a visit from a very brave robin who enjoyed our crumbs and the same from a little field mouse (I think - some type of mouse) who dashed out from the bushes to pick up a chip we'd dropped. We took a walk up a path and discovered Black Eagle Camp - cannot WAIT to come back with the kids and experience that - what an adventure!We wish we...

                                  What a gem did we find in Kleinrivier. Unexpected luxury in a rustic environment. For tired city souls this is as good as it gets. Quiet, peaceful, only natural sounds, watching the sun colour the cliffs. The cottage with its shower with a view was a lovely surprise. Thanks Dion for your friendliness. Tertius and Christa

                                  We spent two nights in one of the Dassiekrans chalets. It was a beautiful secluded setting and the chalet was lovely and modern. There are a number of great hiking trails - though we only tried one - and an awesome rock pool, filled by a spring, that is perfect for a dip on a hot summer's day.As birders we were impressed by the array of forest species that we could spot from the balcony. We were even treated to some cracking views of a Knysna woodpecker! Well worth a visit.
