For an unforgettable breakaway, visit our remote valley and in deep nature, recharge your body, soul and mind. For those who love hiking, trail-running and mountain-biking, there are many paths and trails. If you prefer relaxing and unwinding, come and sit in the shade on the grass and read and swim and absorb the sights of the rock formations and sounds of the birds and bees. And last but not least for night-owls, there is spectacular star gazing. Most importantly, for everyone there is the resonating silence of nature and also lots of space to have a lovely time with your family and friends. We don’t have any Eskom electricity on the farm. We only have 2 Luxury Tented Camps, 2 Log Cabins and 4 Campsites. This secluded tent located in a remote kloof surrounded by dramatic rock formation. With spectacular views of pristine fynbos and a little stream running besides ancient waboom trees. Situated between the mountains with no cellphone signal we offer you a unique experience to ease your mind and recharge your body and soul. Can accommodate 4 people each (2 adults and 2 children). Each tent is equipped with good beds & linen, towels, vintage crockery and Cape furniture. There is a gas stove and fridge/freezer a fire pit and braai grid. Solar lighting and gas geyser for an indoor shower and and outside starlight bath - perfect for a romantic get-away. The log cabins can accommodate 2 people each with an option of setting up your own tent next to the cabin for teenagers or another couple. Each cabin is equipped with linen, towels and all the basic kitchen needs, a small fridge / freezer, crockery, cutlery, pot, pan, a 2 plate gas stove, a braai drum and braai grid. With its own private ablution facilities, toilet, hot water shower and solar lights. The campsite can accommodate up to 40 people – all depending on with what camping gear everybody is camping. Each campsite has its own ablution facilities with a shower and separate toilet. Each ablution has solar lights and hot water showers. The Leeurivier runs through the farm and the closest rock pools are approximately 300-400m from the campsite-cabins. Here are a few lovely swimming holes in the river for you to enjoy.

I camped recently at Baliesgat with my rooftop tent and loved it. Marius, the owner, pointed me in the direction of a decent size swimming pool where the owners Australia Cattle dog, Lucky, followed me. That dog is a treat and I just loved him. Looking for further things to do, I explorer a narrow footpath further up the valley, and the find of the day was undoubtedly the crystal clear pool and associated waterfall about 500 m up from the highest tented camp. I will return just to go back there this time armed with a few cold beers! Amenities all worked and very peaceful and quiet. Loved it.

Balie's Gat is an amazing place for a getaway. The cabin was very clean and the kitchen was well-equipped. The scenery there is also spectacular. We were surrounded by mountains and at night, star gazing was super easy. The host, Yvonne, was super nice and was always making sure we were having a good time. I would recommend Balie's Gat to anyone looking for some peace and quiet.
