Bartholomeus Klip

Bartholomeus Klip

Bartholomeus Klip is a wonderfully restored Victorian homestead on an operational wheat and sheep farm amid the 10,000 acres Elandsberg Nature Reserve in the Cape Winelands, just outside Riebeek and a mere 15 minutes’ drive from Wellington.

The Elandsberg Private Nature Reserve was formally declared a provincial nature reserve in 2008 in recognition of its importance to conservation. Its botanical value is incalculable since it preserves the largest remaining portions of two highly threatened renosterveld and fynbos plant communities.

Ten thousand acres of private nature reserve with over 500 head of game, a working farm, wheatlands, flocks of sheep and a buffalo and tortoise breeding project invite no more than ten guests at a time to enjoy walking, hiking, mountain biking, canoeing and birdwatching, or just to switch off and relax.
