Avg per night

Bergplaas Nature Reserve is a private nature reserve situated in the Sneeuberg mountain range of the Eastern Cape, South Africa. In 1998, Princess Irene of The Netherlands acquired the property and embarked on a fifteen-year journey to restore the land to its original pristine habitat. The reserve covers an area of 7,000 hectares of rehabilitated wilderness, offering magnificent views of open plains, mountain streams (which flow during summer rainfall), 300-million-year-old rock formations, and trails made by various wildlife species.

The reserve is located at an altitude of around 1,700 meters, and its indigenous flora contributes to the hidden magic of Bergplaas. The accommodation on the reserve is self-catering, with a minimum stay of two nights required (a surcharge of 40% applies for a one-night stay). The accommodation options include:

The Guesthouse: This is the largest unit, ideal for families or groups, accommodating up to 12 people. It features six spacious rooms, a fully equipped kitchen with an oven, two fridges, and a fireplace, a lounge area with a library and indoor fireplace, and a private porch overlooking the Sneeuberg mountain range.

Hill Cottage: A private cottage on the hill slopes, with a private pool, sleeping up to three people. It has a fully equipped kitchen, a lounge area with a comfortable sleeper couch and fireplace, and outside pit fire with braai facilities. This cottage is perfect for couples seeking a romantic and secluded getaway.

There is also a charming self-catering cottage that can accommodate up to three guests. It contains an en-suite bedroom with two single beds (or an optional king bed), a fully equipped kitchenette, a lounge with a sleeper couch, and an indoor fireplace.
