Rob Le Roux was a perfect host. Very attentive and always looking to make sure that we were comfortable. If you want to get away from it all, this is just the place for you. One is completely off the grid at the end of a Rob's private valley. We made the drive from Kareedouw not in a 4x4 and...

We appreciate the positive responses from our guests. Each and every guest is special, and so we try and treat them accordingly with the warmest hospitality that has made the Baviaanskloof region such a popular destination for visitors. Good food, clean comfortable accommodation, warm hospitality and tranquility in this wilderness region are the hallmarks of Baviaans Lodge.

Built out of rounded river stones, the cottages also sport a cosy fire place for those winter evenings. Food is all homemade and make...

Our host provided knowledgeable and interesting information about the SAN paintings he took us to view. We also took a lovely walk to a beautiful gorge for a swim. Food was good. Accommodation is clean and adequately comfortable. We were however disappointed with the sense of neglect that is evident with the property and gardens. The pool is a murky...

We do apologize to those who visited us over the last December/January who may not have found everything as what we would normally expect our guests to find when visiting us. We take a lot of pride in the presentation and upkeep, but due to the extreme circumstances, this was not possible over this period. December 2nd till the 15...
