We are in Cambria, 45 km from Patensie, on the road to Willowmore, at the entry to the Baviaanskloof Wilderness Area. The chalets and campsites are both located on the working citrus farm “Ysrivier”, owned by Petrus and Helene van der Watt. Enjoy our hospitality in a safe environment. Day trips into the adjacent Baviaanskloof Nature Conservation Area to view wild animals and the magnificent scenery can be arranged.
Petrus and Helene will be happy to show visitors who are interested around on the 230ha farm and introduce you to what goes on. Visitors can see and/or participate in the farm’s business, such as orange picking, potato and tobacco sorting and so forth. Ninety hectares are under irrigation, half being devoted to citrus and the remainder to tobacco, potatoes, wheat, lucerne etc.
There are hiking trails that take one through indigenous vegetation and gorges. Options are leisurely walks, 8 hour hiking trails, mountain and rock climbing as well as swimming in rock pools. It is quite an experience to walk through indigenous bush continuously crossing the pristine mountain stream. A large variety of birds, including Knysna Loerie’s, can be observed with the naked eye as well through binoculars both on the farm and whilst walking.
