Something for everyone
The remote Witzenberg Valley the property encompasses 4200 hectares of spectacular and pristine landscapes, dissected by the Olifants River Gorge. The area is predominantly Table Mountain Sandstone, which weathers easily and consequently results in spectacular rock formations. A bio-diversity hotspot, the land is part of the Cape Floral Kingdom, and is home to a number of rare and endemic floral, avian and freshwater species.
The Olifants river system has the richest collection of endemic fish species in South Africa – 10 indigenous fish species, of which 8 are endemic. The upper reaches are the only mainstream areas remaining in the whole catchment area where natural reproduction takes place. GlenDonald Cottage offers visitors a wide range of unique experiences from fly-fishing, hiking, kloofing to simply lying back, relaxing and soaking up nature at it’s finest.
