Bartholomeus Klip, 75 minutes drive from Cape Town, is a luxurious Victorian manor situated on 6500 hectares of land, comprising a large arable farm and a private nature reserve. Here, rolling wheat fields meet pristine fynbos (the wonderful flora native to South Africa) at the foot of the Elandskloof mountains. Fish eagles call overhead and shepherds guide their flocks over the wide open farmlands.
The farm house has five beautifully and individually decorated en-suite bedrooms, exceptional cuisine and unique attention to detail. Relax in the tranquil gardens, swim in the spectacular circular pool, row or windsurf on the lake-sized dam, explore the working farm, cycle through the golden wheat fields or head off into the fascinating winelands. The wonderful picnic baskets are legendary. Evening game drives within the private reserve will reveal herds of bontebok, eland, blue and black wildebeest, springbok, gemsbok, red hartebeest and cape mountain zebra. You might also visit the quagga breeding programme before relaxing with a sundowner at the foot of the majestic Elandsberg mountains.
