Berghoff fynbos farm in the Olifants River Mountains above Porterville offers four fully equipped, self-catering chalets for breaks from city life.

The chalets all have panoramic views over the mountains and are a short two hour drive from Cape Town.

Disa, Erica and Barbi are in close proximity to a one hectare dam stocked with Clanwilliam Yellowfish, sawfin and the odd old rainbow trout, whilst Klipspringer has its own farm-style reservoir for cooling off in the summer.

The chalets all have a built-in braai on their stoep and indoor fireplaces for chilly nights.

They are located far from the main roads on the mountain, guaranteeing a quiet, relaxing stay. Wildlife abounds, with many rhebuck, klipspringers, grysbokkies, baboons, porcupines, black eagles, Cape spotted owls and elusive leopards.

Guests are free to hike around the 390 hectare farm, either along the farm roads or through the indigenous fynbos to our waterfall.

For the flora enthusiasts there's plenty to see, as we're home to a small population of Erica abietina (subsp. petraea) that's not found anywhere else in the world. Marvel at the distinct scent of buchu, often unnoticed amongst the myriad plant species but quick to give off its odour when touched, or get down on all fours and admire the insectivorous Drosera with their sticky bug-trap leaves.

Mountain bikers can test their skill and endurance along the roads through the protea plantations, or up and down Dasklip Pass, one of the most under-rated of South Africa's mountain passes in terms of sheer beauty.

Our mountain is home to annual paragliding competitions, including many international championships. Those less inclined to physical exertion can kick back on the stoep with a book or cold beer and admire the changing colours of the distant Kouebokkeveld and Skurweberg mountains.
