Baviaanskloof - Steytlerville - Willowmore - Rietbron

Set in the Karoo Midlands, the Baviaans area features majestic mountains rising from rolling plains, with lush green valleys providing stark contrast. With stunning sunsets and clear, starry nights, the Baviaans offers a taste of life at its unspoilt best.

The area encompasses the World Heritage Site of Baviaanskloof and the Karoo towns of Steytlerville, Willowmore, Rietbron, and Groot Rivier and is located in the Eastern Cape Province of South Africa.

Known for small stock farming and for the richness of its endemic plant species, its interesting cultural heritage and its abundance of bird and animal life, the Baviaans area holds ample opportunity for outdoor recreation for both the adventurous and the less adventurous tourist.

While the areas’ natural splendour attracts nature lovers from around the globe, this is not all it has to offer as artists and entrepreneurs flourish under the Karoo sun and create points of interest well-worth the journey off the beaten track.

Offering a number of different routes, the area is the perfect destination for both short and long breaks from the city.

The Baviaans is the ultimate destination to experience the best nature has to offer in its purest form and life as it was intended to be lived.

Due to its rugged nature, the Baviaanskloof, Rietbron, Steytlerville, Willowmore and Grootrivier areas cater for both the adventurous and the less adventurous tourist. Visit our "what to do page" to read more.
