There are four cottages, Geelhout, Tierhout, Olienhout and Melkhout. Melkhout and Geelhout each has a large double bedroom as well as a second room for three guests with 1 additional bed in the lounge (6 guests in total). Tierhout and Olienhout each has a large double bedroom as well as a second room for five guests with 2 additional beds in the lounge (9 guests in total). Extra beds and a baby cot can be added if required. The kitchen is fully-equipped with a fridge, hotplate, microwave, electric frying pan, toaster and kettle.
A gas geyser supplies hot water for the shower and basins. Smoking is prohibited in the houses. The spacious lounge provides enough place for puzzle-building or reading. Each cottage has an outside braai and the lapa offers a shady place where guests can gather around the braai. (wood available) A huge natural swimming hole will offer a welcome respite during the summer months. Regretfully we cannot allow pets as this is a wilderness area.
The campsite is a large grass-covered area surrounded by shady, indigenous trees. Five double electric points provide electricity to the campers. There are two communal braai areas for our guests: the lapa offers a shady place where guests can gather around the braai and the fire pit is ideal for long night time “kuiers”. Campers can also make use of individual braai drums. We have wood for sale.
There are specific camp sites that can be booked in advance (Loerie, Hoephoep, Tarentaal, Fisant, Swie and Neddikkie), but when a group books the terrain, the campers can pick and choose where to pitch their tents.
The road to inniKloof is maintained and caravanners have no problem getting their caravans to and from inniKloof. The camp site is close to the cottages and this is handy when a large group wants to make use of inniKloof.
We have wood available for sale.
The Klein River flows from the Stinkhoutberg to join the Gamtoos River at Hankey. The narrow valley provides a sanctuary for a wealth of fauna and flora.
The valley vegetation is Afro Montane forests with yellowwood, milkwood, cape fig, forest elder and white stinkwood trees. Valley bushveld is found on the northern slopes of the mountains with boerboon, aloe ferox, mountain aloe and cactus like Euphorbia Grandidens.
Bushbuck are numerous and you might encounter one early in the morning. Monkeys and baboons might be heard. Because of the dense bush you will not see the bushpigs and caracal as they are mainly nocturnal animals. In summer be on the lookout for snakes as this is a wilderness area. Water monitors will also be around in the warmer months.
Hankey (12km) was established in 1826 and is the Gamtoos Valley’s oldest town. It was named after the Rev. William Alers Hankey, an ex-banker and the secretary of the London Missionary Society (LMS).
Patensie (25km) In 1876 the farm “Patentie” of 3000 morgen was awarded to David Keyser jnr. In 1852 the farm was sud-divided and in 1858 Patensie was declared a town. The name Patensie has a Hottentot origin and means “lêplek van die beeste” (where the cattle lie).
Loerie (25km) Nowadays known for the annual Naartjie Festival in September. The VW National Rally uses the area surrounding Loerie for most of the offroad stages.
