The River View are situated in the heart of 3 World Biodiversity Hotspots in the Little Karoo. Watch the sun rise and set and the stars appear in this untouched part of the Western Cape. Another hideaway for the one-bedroomers!

The River View Cottages are three 1 bedroom cottages overlooking a sweeping bend in the Gamka river in the Matjiesvlei valley, 14km outside of Calitzdorp. Each of the cottages is unique, perfectly rustic and they overlook the water in the valley. Hideaway just the two of you- or go as a group- and enjoy the uninterrupted mountain views and the river that runs through the valley that intersect the farm.

Spend the day swimming or paddling in the Gamka river or walking along the veld trails. Explore the Karoo hills by day and spend your nights around a BBQ in the boma or in the cottage with the fire lit and the wine corked. The pristine wilderness and the sounds of the wildlife provide the best kind of calm. The landscape is perpetually green with dramatic changes each season.

The farm roads provide both leisurely and challenging mountain biking and the rivers provide guests with excellent fly and stationery fishing opportunities. the Swartberg and Rooiberg mountain ranges and excellent birdwatching.
