Visitors can hike up to the top of Inkruip Peak (1380m; ±3hours up) with it’s most marvellous view over the western valleys of vineyards and wheat fields, with Table Mountain in the background. To the east you have a view over the Witzenberg Plato, Bokkeveld and Matroosberg mountains.

Game viewing, especially birds..! The black eagle and other birds of prey like the gymnogene, booted eagle and lots of smaller species are around all the time…
Or just a drive in your car to come and enjoy the view…!
ACCOMMODATION in rustic stone cottage.
The accommodation facilities are designed to cater for the differing needs of the visitor.
Of course, the farm will also cater for the city dweller who doesn't want to cook or doesn't know how to rough it! Breakfast or supper meals can be booked in advance!
One thing for sure, up there on Kleinfontein, you will experience the sound of nothing but the 'twitter' of the birds, the 'bubbling' of the mountain streams, or you can just lie in the heather and savour the scent of the mountain flora!
Accommodation in Kliphuis or at Mont Rouge offers all the mod cons, roof fans, TV, fire places... Most beautiful settings...!
So, does one need more enticement to visit?
Don't delay! Plan for that holiday weekend in the mountains!
