Where you'll be

Orangekloof is a beautiful protected area situated at the northern end of the Hout Bay valley. It is a remarkable, ancient gorge with waterfalls in season, dramatic scenery, afrotemperate forest with majestic trees such as the yellowwood, assegaai and ironwood, all tucked into this most magical and serene gorge. Due to its uniqueness and sensitive flora a maximum of 12 people are allowed in each day. This place leaves me in awe eachtime.
