Bartholomeus Klip Farmhouse

Bartholomeus Klip Farmhouse is an exclusive country lodge situated on a farm and nature reserve only an hour's drive from Cape Town, near the winelands. Guests can enjoy walking or hiking in the reserve, mountain biking through wheat fields, windsurfing, birdwatching, and boating on the dam.
Since the Farmhouse is situated on one of the largest wheat and sheep farms in the Western Cape, there is always plenty of farming activity for guests to inspect. This includes the breeding of disease-free buffalo, now an impressive herd of over 50 animals.

But the glory of Bartholomeus Klip is its 4 000 hectare fynbos nature reserve, with its many rare plant species, its important population of the endangered geometric tortoise, and its herds of eland, springbok, bontebok, black wildebeest and red hartebeest, as well as zebras from the world-famous Quagga Project. The farm's enthusiastic nature conservation officer has encouraged the formation of an Eco-Schools Club at a nearby school, which makes regular visits, and leadership camps have been held in the reserve for local high school children.
