Duiwekloof - A Wilderness experience without having to rough it to much!

Duiwekloof is a small wilderness campsite in the western region of the Baviaanskloof.

There is no electricity so make sure you bring camping equipment such as gas lights and stoves.  Else just enjoy a braai under the starry skies of the Eastern Cape.

This is the best maintained, cleanest, neatest wilderness campsite that I have ever seen and can really recommend it even to people not normally into roughing it.

The ablutions are basic and consists of a pit latrine ( With a difference!) and a bush shower to die for!

Water is is heated by gas so you can really enjoy the experience of an open air shower in the wilderness!

There are also a few chalets where you can stay, a games room and a small rock pool to cool off in during the hot summer months.

In my books, one of the best things about the Baviaanskloof is that it so out of the way. This leads up to the next best thing...

...it is quiet with no crowds cluttering up the scenery and making a lot of unneccesary noise.

 Here, you can walk in nature, enjoying the solitude, just being human again and being able to camp in this little corner in the Baviaanskloof is certainly a privilege that you remember forever - another Magical Southern African Safari moment!

How to get to there...

Directions from Patensie: 

Please note that you will need a 4X4 vehicle to safely negotiate the section over Combrinck's Pass in the Baviaanskloof wilderness area. From Patensie travel east on the R331 to Andrieskraal. Just before Andrieskraal turn right on the R332 to Cambria. Keep left on the R332 past Cambria. Once you are through the wilderness area the going gets a lot easier. Even if you are not stopping for sightseeing the trip will still take at least 5 hours. If you are towing an off road trailer, it will take even longer. Follow the R332 until you reach your destination on the right.

Directions from Willowmore:

Head south on the N9 for about 5km. Turn left on the R332 to Baviaanskloof. The roads makes a split after 29km. Keep left on the R332. After approximately another 17km arrive at Duiwekloof on your left hand. You do not need a 4X4 vehicle on this route.
