Sadly Klipspringer can no longer offer short stays, however it remains open for longer stays and for folk seeking isolation and inspiration Klipspringer makes the ideal artist’s retreat.
Set high on top and in between the famous Redhill mountains with 360 degree panoramic views of the Swartberg, Klipspringer is totally off the grid, built with materials from the surrounding rocks and river. The popular Groenfontein valley and ever flowing Nels river forms the Northern boundary with Besemkop adjacent to Calitzdorp the Western boundary.
Watch the Klipspringers on the Redhills from the many decks or the fire pit, go hiking or mountain biking or explore the surrounding caves – all with magnificent views. Take a game drive to see Klipspringers, Duiker, Steenbok, Zebra, Gemsbok, Kudu, Eland, Swart wildebeest and Giraffe.
Calitzdorp is a mere 20 kms away for wine and port tasting. Take a drive through the popular touristic (Art) Groenfontein valley, Kruisriver, Redhills, Lategansvlei, Swartberg pass to Prince Albert, Gamkaskloof, Cango caves, Meiringspoort, De Rust and Seweweekspoort are all beautiful and easy day outings. Gamka Nature Reserve to the South and the ostrich farms call for another outing.
KINDLY NOTE: KLIPSPRINGER IS ONLY ACCESSIBLE TO THOSE WITH A 4 x 4. STRICTLY ONLY 4×4 VEHICLES ARE ALLOWED IN THE RESERVE.
Sedans and even 2×4 bakkies are expressly not allowed because of the steep terrain, and the damage they cause to the gravel roads, especially when wet.
Please note that in order to safely locate the house, guests meet the managers in Calitzdorp and they will then guide you up to the house in convoy. It takes around one hour so it is imperative that all guests in the group travel in one convoy please. Separate convoys can be organised by prior arrangement at a charge.

Klipspringer is a lovely spot. I really appreciated how well stocked the kitchen was, with oils, spices, vinegars, as well as all the right kitchen tools. As foodies, it was really appreciated!
Every detail of the house is well thought out and perfect. We enjoyed each and every second of our stay and we had the most peaceful time. Thank you.
Absolutely amazing long weekend. The surroundings are beyond beautiful, could never get enough photos. Lovely home, with everything we needed and wished for. Outside showers always my best! The plants, the rocks, the birds, the animals, the stars, the warm winter fires – bliss! The birding was difficult at time but when the sun came out, everything came to life. Around 40 species seen over 3 days with highlights: Fairy Flycatcher, Sentinel Rock Thrush, Cape Batis, Bokmakirie, and Cape Pendulum Tit.
We had an absolutely amazing time there, Frank and I had totally relaxed, we ate and drank far too much, which was amazing as we did not have to drive anywhere. The views and mornings were beautiful and the house was totally equipped and well managed. We loved the animals which we saw plenty of.
The place was absolutely perfect, not only a most beautiful house, but on top of a mountain, overlooking a game reserve, with stunning sunsets, outside showers, etc etc, what on earth could anyone complain about? Oh, and I have to add also, one of the best sunsets I have ever seen. Special mention must go to Brad who we wished we had invited to dinner. He was extremely kind, friendly, punctual and he always answered his phone or replied to a message straight away.
We honestly had one of the best stays yet at a Perfect Hideaways property.... everything was amazing and very carefully considered.
We LOVED our stay! Everything else was working perfectly and we would love to return!
Many thanks – had the most wonderful stay at Klipspringer. Brad was super helpful and everything went according to plan.
Our time at Klipspringer was superb, I wish we didn't have to leave. The property location is so unique - truly away from the world, surrounded only by nature, peace and quiet. Just what the doctor ordered! Loved being up in the mountains with no one else around, expansive 360 views as far as the eye could see, loved being far enough away from the highway to not hear any road noise either! The property itself was clearly very well thought out, planned and laid out when built by its owners - smart use of space and materials, outside spaces on all sides so that you can always have an outside space to enjoy no matter which direction the wind is blowing from (being up on the mountain there was a breeze most of the time, which is a blessing in itself being in the Karoo). Felt great to be off the power grid and entirely self-sufficient. Inside contents very well equipped and furnished, very comfortable beds and bedding, nothing we needed for. Moving on from the donkey to the gas geysers was definitely a good move - perfect and stable supply on-demand for all guests. What a privilege to have been able to make use of this home for our stay. There are so many personal touches and effects in the property which really made it fell like staying in someone's home, rather than a cold, sterile and sparsely furnished rental, as can often be the case. I only hope that the owner's special effects do not get damaged by other guests in the future - people can be so inconsiderate with other people's property. But we truly appreciated the luxury of feeling at home at Klipspringer, so thank you to the owners for so generously opening their second home to us. I hope we can one day return again to share this piece of paradise with others.
Thank you for having us and thanks to Brad for guiding us so wonderfully. We came to escape and escape we did. We contemplated staying for another week. Thanks again, this is truly a hidden gem, to be used again in future.
We could not have picked a more suitable place to celebrate 25 years of marriage! Thank you for sharing the wonder and beauty of nature with us! You also inspired us to dream and create something similar! God bless you and your stunning Klipspringer house!
Thank you for a lovely relaxing weekend away! It’s a true perfect hide-away! Much needed relax time and a special birthday break!
Thank you for sharing such a special piece of nature with us! Was truly magical to sit in silence surrounded by breath taking nature. We leave Klipspringer having spotted numerous wildlife and totally at peace. We will definitely be back.
Thank you so much for this absolutely incredible place! The views are BEAUTIFUL! We will definitely come back!
What a magical place! Thank you for opening your gorgeous home to us. From kudus chasing across the ridgeline at dawn to klipspringers as dusk, we have been entranced. This is heaven – long walks on dusty trails, hours by the pool in the sun. Brad and Natasha were such gracious host, welcoming us to paradise! We will return!
We had the most amazing stay here and enjoyed kicking in the new year in utter peace, surrounded by beauty! We will return shortly and recommend as much as we can. This place if of true beauty and happiness.
