  • Gorgeous off the beaten track. Fabulous chalet for 2 families wanting to disconnect from life and connect with each other. The hot tub was a hit! Spacious and very well equipped. Will definitely go back

  • Well the road up the mountain is definitely not for small cars, which made our day as we love off roading and 4x4 adventures. It was definitely worth every moment getting to our destination. I highly recommend this place for people to get away from their busy lifestyles. I will definitely be returning for a break from everyone and everything. It's peaceful and quiet, with only the sounds of nature. Definitely food for the soul. It was like we were above the clouds, looking over mountains and very private.

  • We had a memorable weekend at Wolwekrans! The view from our tent was spectacular. It is so nice to stay in a secluded place where you feel alone with nature. To have your own private boma and a -hot tub (which we enjoyed as a plunge pool during the hot day) is an added bonus. We did the hike up to the mountain top and the scenery from up there is well worth the challenging route. We highly recommend Wolwekrans to anyone that wants a retreat-like getaway and/or adventure. Thank you Sarah for your friendly service.

  • A hidden gem in the mountains of Schoemanskloof. There is only about 3 houses and then a newly erected canvas tent that I believe sleeps 4. The house was beautiful with a breathtaking view. Different hikes for different abilities. It is self catering so best to get everything you need before as coming up and down the mountain is tricky. You'll need a 4x4 to get up but the managers can also get you up there if you don't fancy trying yourself. We had a wonderful stay but we went in winter so dress warm as it gets freezing.

  • It's definitely a must in your lifetime. The road leading up the mountain forms part of the whole far-off into nowhere feeling. It's a fairly steep climb to the top, and a high clearance 4x4 or 2x4 with diff lock should be able to make it up (depending on the 4x2 drivers' ability and confidence). Everything you require in the chalets is there.

  • We had a wonderful stay at Wolwekrans Eco Lodge. Place was beautiful and had everything we needed - even in the kitchen. Enjoyed the hot tub, and also went for a swim in the pool. The view was spectacular. Will definitely not recommend using a 2x4 to get to the chalet, and this was part of the off-grid experience. Loved it.

  • We visited Wolwekrans for the 4th time and it was perfect as always! Breathtaking views and peaceful- just the place to go to escape the city. The chalet was super neat and clean. So much work has gone into maintaining and improving Wolwekrans- the addition of the outdoor hot tub is amazing! Sarah and Daniel are absolutely incredible and so helpful. Sarah has put in many hours of hard work with the horses and it was lovely to see the progress since we were last there in April. We hope to be back again!

  • A Heartfelt Thank You to Sarah Clark for check in on us on arrival and during our stay when a storm hit, she make sure all your needs are fulfilled. From the Complimentary Bottle of Bubbly, the dough in the fridge to make your first night a breeze, so delicious. You definitely need a 4x4 but our 2x4 made it as well. The View.....incredible and private. The luxury Tent, the hot tub, the Boma everything made our anniversary a romantic memory. Thank You Sarah and Team!!
