Get away from it all - soak up the splendour of nature where the Olifants river flows into Bulshoek dam near Clanwilliam, South Africa.

Our self-catering accommodation options cater for various tastes and budgets, including 3-star rated cottages with satellite TV and air-conditioning, a converted farmhouse, rustic wooden houses, mobile homes, caravans and camping.

A tranquil setting offers hiking trails, gentle walks, horse riding, excellent bird watching and picturesque blankets of wild spring flowers among the unique Cape fynbos. Of special interest are some very well preserved San rock paintings which can be seen in the various caves and overhangs along the hiking trails.

Water levels in Bulshoek dam are kept fairly constant throughout the year, making it ideal for water-sports enthusiasts. Power-boating, skiing, canoeing and outstanding bass and carp fishing are all popular pastimes here.

Nature-lovers will really appreciate the diversity of fauna and flora. Baboons, porcupine, steenbok, klipspringer, meerkat and otters are frequently spotted. Higher up in the surrounding mountains, hikers often encounter spoor of the Cape leopard, but due to the secretive nature of this cat, very few can count themselves amongst the lucky few to have seen this magnificent animal! Several species of raptors nest on the nearby cliffs - visitors to "Kloofhuis" can sit on the front porch and observe a pair of black eagles on their nest.

Langkloof farm, on which our resort is situated is a working farm with goats, cattle and various crops. Most children thoroughly enjoy assisting in bottle-feeding the lambs during lambing season (June-July).
