About Klipfontein Cottage
Klipfontein is an extensive cattle ranch of typical African rolling savannah hills against the backdrop of the Drakensberg Mountains. This is the perfect stop over for weary travellers. The farm is ideally placed for a quick exit from the N3 National Highway, near Estcourt. Our farm entrance is only 1 km from an N3 interchange. We are also midway between Johannesburg and the Natal coastal resorts. We are situated a few km north of Estcourt Shell Ultra City Petrol stop on the N3 highway and 20 km from Winterton.

Giants Castle Nature Reserve with its historic Bushmen paintings and caves has much to offer.
