Creating new experiences and activities at Kamerkloof
Our GUESTS who visit Kamerkloof are stunned by its combination of natural beauty and history – the abundant biodiversity, the thriving flora and the undisturbed habitats in an area with great history. One look is all it takes to understand why people come here the first time, but our approach to conservation and preservation explains why people come back time and time again.
96% of the property is completely undisturbed, with the beauty of the Baviaanskloof allowed to shine through so you can experience and explore the untouched beauty of the landscape. Kamerkloof is very much a place where farming and conservation work hand in hand. Kamerkloof and Studtis community will serve to complete your education on the history and people of the Baviaanskloof. P.H Nortje, one of South Africa's acclaimed authors, was born in this area, and his epics 'Voetpad se Kloof' and 'Die Wildedruif Val' are dedicated to the life and struggle of the people of the Baviaanskloof.
The historical Anglo-Boer War 'Voetpadsekloof' trail has been restored to its former glory. The trail is available for Kamerkloof GUESTS only. Among the highlights is the 'Damsekloof' slot canyon adventure trail with chain ladders. Both trails can be reached easily from all the accommodations at Kamerkloof. Take a donkey cart ride from Kamerkloof to the springs at Sewefontein and see the vast, gnarled, wild fig trees. If you are interested in the paintings left by the San and Khoisan, such art can be seen through prior arrangements with Kamerkloof Management. Spot Verreux (Black) Eagles from your patio, learn about the history and heritage of this historical place and see the shepherds bring in the sheep every evening with a chance of seeing a newborn lamb.
And for those who want to learn and discover more, the Kamerkloof Heritage Centre offers insights and knowledge about the Baviaanskloof and the farm. For those who interpret the phrase family holiday literally, Kamerkloof provides a variety of activities designed to bring the entire family together. From board games and various games at Studtis Huis to short trail expeditions and day-long adventures spanning the complete spectrum of the farm and special areas of Kamerkloof to appreciating nature and life on an olive farm, the possibilities are truly endless.
