Bobbejaanskloof is a place of peace and restoration. The elegant Karoo-style farmhouse sits in a 150-hectare private nature reserve on a plateau at the foothills of the Tsitsikamma Mountains.
The main house is nestled in a deep U-shaped kloof where extensive conservation efforts over the last 20 years have seen restoration of indigenous flora and the return of shy bushbuck, porcupine, tortoises, storks, jackal buzzards, herons, ducks and the odd baboon.
Sitting on the generous and comfy front stoep one gazes over grassland, fynbos and forests of yellowwoods, milkwoods, ironwoods, white pear, stinkwood and Scotia pines towards Formosa Peak and the blue giants of the Tsitsikama Mountains.
At night only one light flickers in the distance and the sky becomes a blaze of stars. Peace is easily found here.
The house is on a working Nguni cattle farm, 18km from Plettenberg Bay. This is a nature reserve, and guests are asked to respect the strict conservation regulations: no picking of indigenous plants, careful consumption of water, use of alternative energy sources and recycling.
