We recently spent the most delightful few days at this amazing spot on the Bainskloof Pass with our family. Named India House, it is rented out by Perfect Hideaways. We have used them a few times and they are always fabulous properties for many a family gathering.
Bastiaanskloof is a 2500 hectare private nature reserve, situated in the historic and picturesque mountain pass of Bainskloof, an hour and a half drive from Cape Town in the Western Cape.
Bainskloof forms part of the Boland Mountain Complex in the Cape Floral region, one of eight areas in South Africa designated by Unesco as a World Heritage site.
The property is situated in an area with over 800 species of fynbos trees and shrubs and has a wide range of fauna, including Leopard, Klipspringer, Black Eagles, Angulate Tortoises, African Clawless Otters – amongst others.
