Baviaanskloof, Eastern Cape, South Africa

Speekhout Farm is situated in the magestic Baviaanskloof, a World Heritage Site situated in the Eastern Cape of Southern Africa.

Our stunning mountain borders the greater Baviaans Nature Reserve, offering guests quietude, clear air and sweet water to rejuvenate and revive.

The farm is located 19 km out of the NuweKloof Pass, at the west side of the kloof - being at the start of an amazing trail through this stunning mountain valley

We are easily reached by low clearance sedan vehicles travelling slowly on some sections of the dirt road, and no need for a 4x4 to the farm

Speekhout (Kiggelaria Africana) is the wild peach tree which was used for wagon wheel spokes, with numerous specimens growing in the kloof
