About Blue Hill Escape Nature Reserve

Blue Hill Escape offers self-catering accommodation on a 2300 hectare nature reserve, in the Kouga Mountains in the Western Cape. The property lies to the west of the Baviaanskloof Wilderness area and shares two borders with the reserve. Breakfast and dinner are served on request in the owner´s family home (booking essential).

The double bedroom is large and bright, with easy access to the comfortable lounge area and kitchen facilities. The modern bathroom with a shower and a bath, has a view of Bloukop Mountain and the nearby sand-olive slopes. Braai facilities are available in the communal garden.
