About the neighbourhood
The farm Doornkloof remained uninhabited by humans for over 30 years after the last almond farmer left in the fifties and until the land was bought by professor André Rabie in 1981. He had a private nature reserve declared shortly after. Today, this small reserve provides refuge and renewal for its naturally occurring wildlife and for a select few human beings.

We provide plant-, mammal- and bird guides, and binoculars for identification of the former. Take a short drive next door to have a beer and a scrumptious meal at Saggy Stone Brewery. It's better to book over weekends. The Rooiberg-Breede River Conservancy network of MTB trails (over 70 kms) starts near Doornkloof and I'm happy to get you a permit.
Getting around
The dirt road leading to the lodge is more suitable for vehicles with higher ground clearance like an SUV or bakkie, but four-wheel drive is not necessary.
