OUR HISTORY

  • Now, 15 years later, the ground work for the eco lodge was laid under the watchful eyes of the locals which include Kudus, Duiker, Baboons and more.
  • Wolwekrans farm has been in the Schoeman family for more than 20 years and we would like to share this amazing piece of earth with every visitor.

  • 4 star review  Enjoyed the extreme off-road challenge to get there. Arriving at a beautifully set chalet that is well catered for and homey. Spectacular views and just the break needed.

  • 5 star review  I'm not sure that any Google review can truly capture the magnitude of this experience. There are only two words needed to describe Wolwekrans EcoLodge: exceptional and awesome. The luxury tents are very well kitted, and perfectly suited to a tranquil off-the-grid breakaway. You will enjoy blissful peace and quiet in a prestine mountainous environment, listening to nothing but the whispers of nature. Thank you for giving us an unforgettable break from the rat race!

  • 5 star review  Loved the stay. Stayed in the glamping- tent accommodation which was really clean, stocked with all the utilities you required (minus wood and ice- bring that along). The view is exquisite. Family friendly, but not really for very young kids- there’s no fence. The fountain hike is perfect for families. Overall the perfect spot to recharge and connect nature and family.

  • 5 star review  We spent our 30th Wedding Anniversary weekend at Wolwekrans Eco Lodge. Very interesting access road, some 4x4 involved, just up our alley. Breath-taking view from our tent house. Constant calming sound of the waterfall. Mesmerizing star filled evening sky. Special thanks to the Wolwekrans family for the lovely Anniversary gift. We thoroughly enjoyed every moment in this lowveld jewel!

  • 5 star review  We loved it. The welcome was warm and friendly from both Ane and Floors. We even got some bread dough to use in the "varkie", which was a nice touch! The cottage was clean and comfortable with everything one could need. The patio with braai and seperate boma overlooks the picturesque Schoemanskloof. We'll certainly be back!

  • 5 star review  This was the most stunning location and we had a lovely time. A cautionary note on the hiking trails though... the mountain trail is suitable for experienced climbers only. It's a very steep, slippery and frankly dangerous climb but the views are well worth it. It would be a good idea to take some extra gear with. The forest trail is not a forest trail. Of all the names that the lodge could have chosen, forest is simply not true. All of the trails are poorly maintained and you feel like a real jungle explorer hacking through overgrown grass and thorn bushes. Don't get me wrong, it was an absolutely gorgeous spot, perfect for a peaceful getaway. Thank you for a wonderful holiday.

  • 5 star review  Most special & breathtaking long weekend away at Wolwekrans. Thank you! Everything was absolutely beyond 5 stars.. From the caring management and constant assistance from the delightful Floors & Ane, to all the magnificent hikes around the property..to a waterfall and even up the Schoemans mountain (yes we made it!), to the breathtaking views at our very own remote challet (even in the shower!), the entire family absolutely fell inlove with Wolwekrans & Schoemanskloof & we cannot wait to be back! Thank you so much to Nedine for assisting the booking so greatly and making a plan for us as it was a secret getaway for my fathers birthday. Such an hospitable place!! Highly recommend for any families , couples or solo adventurers looking for an offline weekend in the magic mountains. This is certainly a very special hidden gem.. Ps- a little reminder for anyone who does have a 4x4; be prepared!! The 30 minute road up was no joke and a bit of an adventurous steep Jeep track of its own as you’d need to know some serious 4x4’ing skills to maneuver!! Make sure not to arrive too late at night like we did! However, Wolwekrans do organise for you to safely park at the bottom & get a lift up if you not sure (another bonus of this special place)!
