Where is Baskloof?

Baskloof Private Fynbos Nature Reserve (310 hectares) straddles the mountains around and behind the Conservation Villages of Misty Cliffs in the north and to 3 kms south of Scarborough, on the M65 south.

Table Mountain National Park continues the pristine nature area as the northern boundary as well as to the south to Cape Point. The entrance to Baskloof is on the far south side, directly off the M65, the tourist route to/from Cape Point.

The "Werf", Garden & Infrastructure

...is the approx. 2 hectare area from the entrance gates of Baskloof in the south to the fringe of the core nature area. So badly denuded and disturbed an area that it was necessary to embark on a large and ongoing landscaping rehabilitation project. Years of alien clearing preceeded rehabilitating the area, beginning in 1998 by planting Protea repens, Leucadendron xanthoconus , L. saligum and L. laureolum grown from seed collected in the area. As well as some hybrid species of proteaceae , erica's, aloes and mimetes from other areas in the Cape. We continue to plant and nurture the emerging natural species....

The Werf houses:  the "Huisie", the original labourers cottage which has been restored and is available for self-catering accommodation; the managers “Waenhuis" cottage and 2 new energy efficient Buildings:  the Workshop and the Co-Existence Centre.
