Baviaanskloof, a wild,lonely valley in the Eastern Cape province of South Africa has rightly been described as Psalm 23 country. It is off the beaten track, it is peaceful, it is beautiful, a river runs through it, it is a place where your soul can be rejuvenated.
In this gallery we cover our safari from Patensie to Kudu Kaya near Cambria.
This is the eastern gate way to the kloof and winds along the river and through peaceful farms before you get to the wilderness area under the management of the Eastern Cape Nature Conservation.Beyond Kudu Kaya you very quickly get immersed in the stunning landscapes and off course once you start over the notorious Combrinck's Pass you know you have arrived.
Once you are over this daunting obstacle you are well and truly in the heart of this beautiful destination and you can just forget that the rest of the world exists...
The Baviaanskloof is in one word, well two words, simply magnificent!
Our first camping spot was at Kudu Kaya. The campsite itself is situated in a narrow gorge on the banks of the Ys River. The sheltered and shadowy lawns are a great place to relax either before or after crossing Combrinck's Pass. We will certainly camp here again should the opportunity to do so present itself.
Below are some more galleries of photos that I have taken during our trip.
