Cloudskraal is situated on the edge of the escarpment, 820m above sea level, thus, as the name implies, we often spend time with our heads in the clouds. Our hiking trails boast with spectacular views over the Knersvlakte.
Experience the tranquillity, of sitting on the escarpment with just the mountain breeze and the call of the black eagle as your company.
For the bird lover the many dams and wetlands provide an excellent habitat for numerous bird species. We are privileged to have large flocks of flamingos on our wetlands, and occasionally the spoonbill and lesser pelican is sited.
Our farm spans 3 vegetation types, namely Succulent Karoo, Cape Fynbos and Renosterveld.
Cloudskraal is one of the oldest farms in this region, the first buildings date back to the late 1700’s.
The guesthouse is a newly built sandstone house with a thatched roof and a lovely stoep that overlooks a dam with a great variety of water birds and a poplar grove with bulbinella, arum lilies and snow drops, during spring on the forest floor.
