Welcome to Kleinrivier

Situated in the picturesque Eastern Cape and sharing two borders with the Groendal Wilderness Area, Kleinrivier Wilderness offers you the ideal opportunity to escape the pressures of city life.

One stop allows you to explore the remote Winterhoek Mountains while experiencing the Karoo fauna and flora by simply walking in the opposite direction.

Our tented camp, stone mountain lodge and self catering chalets (Dassies) have been designed and situated to give nature lovers of all ages a unique wilderness experience. They are ideal for birders, hikers or those who simply want to relax in an beautiful, natural environment.

For those with the energy there are many trails to explore and mountain pools to swim in.

Kleinrivier is only 70km from Port Elizabeth, which makes it the perfect weekend getaway, while midweek breaks are available at reduced rates for those not tied to a schedule.

To access the stone mountain lodge a 4×4 with high ground clearance , low range and a dif lock is needed. Access to all the other accommodations is with a normal car.


Wake up to a chorus of bird calls and hear the owls and dassies call at night.
