The 1825 De Aap Farm Lodge which is nestled among the Swartberg Mountains has been lovingly restored to its former glory and modernized for 20th century comfort.
The De Aap Farm Lodge and Private Nature Reserve borders the awe-inspiring 121 000 hectares Groot Swartberg Nature Reserve which was declared a Cape Floral World Heritage Site in 1997 with it’s unique vastness, peace and tranquility.
The closest town is the quaint Klaarstroom (originally called Klahre Stroom in German which means clear stream) situated on the north end of the truly majestic Meiringspoort pass which cuts across the magnificent Swartberg Mountains.
The De Aap Lodge and Private Reserve forms part of a historic, culture rich area with trendy towns like Prince Albert and De Rust on your doorstep. The Karoo has a beauty of its own waiting for you to experience.
