Architect, Gilbert Colyn, who designed many large buildings throughout South Africa, also designed amongst others, the Conservatoire of Music at the University of Stellenbosch, today still deemed to be one of the finest conservatoires in the world, sensitively transformed the badly neglected buildings, a stable, wagon shed and old farm house, estimated at being approximately 230 years old, into three upmarket cottages situated between the orange groves and with magnificent views to the mountains. At Klein Boschkloof the silence and tranquillity can be felt.
With Clanwilliam town and all its modern day amenities a mere 15 minute drive away, Klein Boschkloof is the ideal base from where the Cederberg, Lambert’s Bay, Elands Bay, the mission station at Wupperthal, Namaqualand and many other small towns along the N7 highway can be explored.
Klein Boschkloof is ideal for a peaceful weekend away from the hustle and bustle of city life, a family get together, intimate wedding or that birthday party away from it all.

KLEIN BOSCHKLOOF FARM – EXPERIENCE AND ACTIVITIES
Klein Boschkloof Farm is situated in the unspoilt Boskloof Valley which borders onto the Cederberg Wilderness Area. The Jan Dissels River, one of the few perennial rivers in the Cederberg, from which the water supply to the farm is obtained, runs through the Boskloof Valley and has its origin at Algeria in the Southern Cederberg. The water is unpolluted and fit for human consumption.
Klein Boschkloof Farm has approximately 3500 orange trees from which 300 tons of oranges are harvested annually. Oranges are harvested in May (Navels) and September (Valencia). Most (70%) of the citrus harvested at Klein Boschkloof Farm are exported through a local packing agent
Other activities include swimming in the complex pool, mountain biking, star gazing, birding (black eagles are regularly seen soaring the sky). Small game such as Klipspringers, Steenbokkies, porcupines, and even mountain tortoises are often spotted when walking/driving down the Boskloof Road. Baboons are regularly seen and heard. The complex pool is surrounded by indigenous shrubs and trees – the red flowers of the Weeping boer-bean trees (Schotia brachyptala) attracts many of the beautiful malachite sun-bird.
A vast number of hiking trails are in close proximity - or simply take a stroll up into the Boskloof Valley.
Fresh crayfish (in season) and fish can be purchased from the quay at Lamberts Bay or Elands Bay.
Every year at spring (August to October) the Boskloof Valley, Clanwilliam and Namaqualand shares in a colourful display of wild flowers.
