So much to do

Buitenstekloof Mountain Cottages offers various activities on and around the farm: Early morning and just before sunset you may encounter the klipspringer pair or other small game coming down to the water.

Birdwatchers will enjoy viewing the nearly 100 different bird species on the farm, ranging from the Witkruis arend to the lovely suikerbekkie. Or watch the antics of our four-footed friends as they roam the mountains.

Mountain biking


You may do some cycling on the various farm roads enjoying the splendour and variety of fynbos and succulents, the Beestong route meandering around our vineyards, and in the kloof - bring your own bike…



Children and adults alike will enjoy the various tortoises, ranging from the small rooipensie going on walkabout, to the old giant mountain tortoises,
often grazing on the lawn at Pomegranate Homestead – hence the Leopard Tortoise sanctuary…

Fishing & swimming


Spend a relaxing time at the dam with a fishing rod, row in our boat (paddle provided) or cool off in the dam or in our natural mountain pool, surrounded by indigenous trees, while you listen to the song of nature…

Kloofing & Hiking


Various routes for young and old, ranging from a relaxing enjoyable stroll through our Engeltjiesbos, a hike to the water fall or Bakenkop, or the quite strenuous hike and climb to the summit of the majestic Langeberg mountains…

Picnic Hike


Take a stroll or hike in the kloof through the various poplar groves, & our Great Grace Grove, to the giant old oak tree, probably planted by the very first owners. You may even take a picnic basket for a picnic under its canopy…

If you wish your children to think deep thoughts, to know the holiest emotions, take them to the woods and hills, and give them the freedom of the meadows; the hills purify those who walk upon them.

We had a wonderful, peaceful and rejuvenating time here. This is really a precious SPACE. We so enjoyed the dam and taking long walks amongst the fragrant mountain.
