Where is Baskloof?

Baskloof Private Fynbos Nature Reserve (310 hectares made up of 3 adjoining Erven: 789; 76 & 983/4) straddles the mountains around and behind the Conservation Villages of Misty Cliffs and 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

Situated on CF 789 is the approx. 2 hectare area from the entrance gates of Baskloof in the south to the fringe of the core nature area. Years of alien clearing preceeded  the ongoing rehabilitating the area by planting and nurturing the emerging natural species.

The Werf houses:

  • The "Huisie": the original labourers cottage.
     
  • 2 Energy efficient buildings:  The Co-Existence Centre and Workshop/warehouse.
     
  • The Waenhuise, a simple wooden structure, presently our weekend getaway.
     
  • Office caravan
     
  • Nursery
     
  • Staff Caravan
     
  • Dam
     
  • Containers



 

"In the end we conserve only what we love. We love only what we understand. We understand only what we are taught"
But we are also the only species which, when it chooses to do so, will go to great effort to save what it might destroy."
