The jewel of South Africa’s wilderness area, the Baviaanskloof Conservancy, borders the historical property, Zandvlakte, in the centre of the Baviaanskloof Valley. The area is internationally well-known for its biodiversity. Relics of ancient cultures are still hidden in these vast mountain ranges. You will feel like you are everywhere and nowhere at the same time.

Guest farm facilities

Dinner and breakfast are available by prior arrangement only. Food and beverages should be purchased before departure, as shops in the valley carry only the bare necessities. All guests eat in the dining room in the house with all the other guests at one table.


The lifestyle at Zandvlakte is informal, relaxed, barefoot and quiet. There is a swimming pool at the homestead and guests can enjoy rural late nights around a fire, walking, bird watching, reading and relaxing.
