Accommodation rating: Superior

Built in 1820, Klippe Rivier was once the family home of past-presidents Steyn and Reitz. Located on a farm outside the town of Swellendam, it was abandoned and fell into a state of disrepair until it was bought recently, restored and nurtured into a gracious country retreat that is a National Monument. The dining area, library and lounges are situated in the main house and the original "Waenhuis" (wagon house) and stables have been converted into six luxury bedrooms preserving much of the original character of the old building. On the ground floor, three spacious bedrooms each have an open fireplace and dressing room. The three loft rooms upstairs are under thatch, offer mountain views and have private balconies. All bedrooms are air-conditioned and have en-suite bathroom facilities. There is also a secluded cottage for the more romantic, with its own fireplace and private garden.
