The drive to Bosch Luys Kloof was an adventure in itself. Meandering through the Seweweekspoort with the swirling rocks above and then crawling down the original Bosch Luys Kloof Pass, built in 1860 for the width of a single wagon, I couldn’t help but wonder what was waiting for me at the end. Sheer beauty, remoteness and tranquility would sum it up! Gerhard and Ans have lovingly spent over 20 years returning the 14000ha back to its original form and creating a mini-refuge for nature-loving guests to explore. With 4x4 routes, mountain biking, trail running, walks of varying distances and difficulties, and game drives available too, you are guaranteed that no two days will be the same. The chalets built from natural materials with traditional thatch roofs are the perfect place to unwind with baths that boast spectacular views of the veld; or an outdoor shower if you want to get even closer to nature. The outstanding team prepares all your meals and before dinner you will be welcomed at the bar, made from old railway sleepers, which opens onto the pool area. With two watering-holes mere metres away, your chances of combining sundowners and game-viewing are high. This really is a special place hidden away near the Gamkapoort Dam so make sure you give yourself enough time to explore the surroundings and enjoy Gerhard and Ans’s wonderful hospitality.
