Klein Boschkloof, a lush green oasis and working citrus farm, surrounded by the Northern Cederberg – the majestic Krakakadouw on the one side and Platberg (Flat Mountain) on the other side - is situated in the unspoilt Boskloof Valley which borders onto the Cederberg Wilderness Area, a mere 9km from the town of Clanwilliam.
Architect, Gilbert Colyn, who designed many large buildings throughout South Africa, amongst others the Conservatoire of Music at the University of Stellenbosch, today still deemed to be one of the finest conservatoires in the world, sensitively transformed the badly neglected buildings, a stable, wagon shed and old farm house, estimated at being approximately 230 years old, into three upmarket cottages situated between the orange groves and with magnificent views to the mountains. At Klein Boschkloof where you are waken by the chirping of birds the silence and tranquillity can be felt.
With Clanwilliam town and all its modern day amenities a mere 15 minute drive away, Klein Boschkloof is the ideal base from where the Cederberg, Lambert’s Bay, Elands Bay, the mission station at Wupperthal, Namaqualand and many other small towns along the N7 highway can be explored.
Klein Boschkloof is ideal for a peaceful weekend away from the hustle and bustle of city life, a family get together, intimate wedding or that birthday party away from it all.
Every year at spring (August – October) the environment surrounding Klein Boschkloof changes from arid to one that share in a colourful display of wild flowers. During September the sweet smell of orange blossoms permeate the air.
San rock art, Rooibos Tea farms, the legendary Strassberger Shoe factory, nearby Bird Island, world renowned rock formations and an assortment of other places of interest are worth a visit. For the more energetic visitor, Clanwilliam offers hiking trails, swimming, cycling, mountain climbing, bouldering, horse riding, water sports and fishing at the Clanwilliam Dam. Or…….. explore the area by air from one of The Red T Company’s various aircrafts.
Clanwilliam has a very moderate winter climate with champagne evenings from May to October.
