  • Tia Ghee tented Camp, Quagga Restrooms & Baviaanskloof Tours
    The valley of the Gamtoos River in South Africa's malaria-free Eastern Cape is the western gateway to the Baviaanskloof Wilderness Area. Less than one hour's drive from Port Elizabeth and even less from Jeffrey's Bay, a short way from the village of Patensie en route to the Baviaanskloof, there lies a tranquil bush camp in thick indigenous forest offering tented accommodation - Tia Ghee. Tia Ghee is catered and fully equipped so as to make it as straightforward an experience as possible.
  • Kudu Kaya Chalets
    We are in Cambria, 45 km from Patensie, on the road to Willowmore, at the entry to the Baviaanskloof Wilderness Area. The chalets are both located on the working citrus farm "Ysrivier", owned by Petrus and Helene van der Watt. Enjoy our hospitality in a safe environment. Day trips into the adjacent Baviaanskloof Nature Conservation Area to view wild animals and the magnificent scenery can be arranged.
  • Kouga Wilderness
    Kouga Wilderness is a family run farm and the Ferreiras has been living on “Kleinrivier” since 1815. It is a working farm with apricots, citrus, sheep and vegetables. You can enjoy nature in the scenic Kouga mountains on the border of the Baviaanskloof World Heritage site. The farm was originally split up into 3 parts, “Onderplaas”, “Kleinrivier” and “Bo-plaas”. Bo-plaas became the property of Nico and Melodie Ferreira in 1988. On this part there was an old farm house that was sadly falling apart. The idea of having a guest house started here, but was only realised in 2000 when the house was finally restored to its formed beauty. Soon after the owners had their first visitors it became a hot spot for mountain climbers, hikers and nature lovers. In 2004 the ablution facilities was built and 8 camp-sites was put up under the shades of 4 big old oak trees. In 2005 a big lapa followed where there have been many weddings since. In 2007 the owners decided to built the “River chalet” and in 2008 the “Heuningkrans chalet” followed.
