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 in a pristine mountain environment.

Good news, all of you waiting for the river to flow and the waterfalls to plummit – WE HAVE HAD RAIN. (Feb 2020)

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.

The newly renovated Pepper Tree Cottage is perfect for guests who like all the home comforts and offers sweeping views over the nearby dam where a throng of birds roost every evening. 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. Plan a road trip from the Baviaanskloof to Addo elephant park and use Kleinrivier as a stop over in between.

To access the stone mountain lodge a 4x4 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.
