Description

Boskloofswemgat is a beautiful small farm in the unspoiled Boskloof Valley, some 10km from Clanwilliam, at the foothills of the Northern Cederberg Mountains.
The farm offers self-catering, thatch-roofed cottages and a prefab cottage, all situated on the banks of the Jan Dissels River with beautiful views of the surrounding mountains.

It is the ideal place for a family getaway, or a romantic weekend. Explore the farm roads on foot or mountain bike, fish and swim in the unpolluted river and be awed by the stars in the clear night skies above you.
Make this your base and explore the Cederberg, the coast at Lambert's Bay, Wupperthal, Namaqualand and Clanwilliam from here, or simply relax and enjoy the peace and tranquillity of nature around you.

  Little Pondok in the mountains
(South Africa)   Rory Kelly 26 September 2014
A beautiful mountain setting in a Old typical African " Pondok" which was perfect for Janice and Myself. Clean Comfortable, and could be used as a central point to do day tours from.
