Whenever I think of Bokpoort I think of horses, wide open spaces, majestic mountains!! Oh, this is truly a piece of paradise, especially if you have ever had dreams of being a cowboy or cowgirl, living in the old "west"...this is the place of living out that dream!! Bokpoort is the kind of place where you can go and feel... More

This "Cowboy Ranch" run by Christo and Helena is a great place to chill for Sundowners at your self-catering house, or join them for hot rock venison dinner, or maybe a mini potjie. We stayed 4 days and every day was different- also visiting Arty Clarens and throwing quad biking in the mix, together with our horse-riding adventures. Accomodation isrelatively... More

I can highly recommend doing the two hour horse trail on Christo and Helena's stunning horses; I had only ever ridden as a child at guest farms, about 40 years ago, and probably only a maximum of half a dozen times, but yearned to ride again. I was apprehensive about getting on a horse, never mind going on a horse... More

Wow! We had an extraordinary experience at Bokpoort! What was planned as a horse ride for my daughter and her best friend, turned out to be the best experience in Clarens ever! Whilst the children were out we waited in the cosy bar, built with sandstone. It reminded me of a bygone era where people gathered to share their joys... More

I've been to bokpoort with a group of friends during our road trip, we finally arrived after a long day driving and they welcomed us so nice and friendly and hospitable, it was awesome. We all went tired of the trip and they directly offered to cook dinner for us, and it was so nice and delicious much better than... More

On our arrival the 4 horses were ready and allocated according to our experience to ensure we were all comfortable. This was important as we had a 12 year old that has never been on a horse before. We then followed the guide who took us on a scenic route and throughout we felt relaxed and comfortable under the supervision... More

What is so unique about this experience is that you are taken into the mountains on horse back for the hunt. You don't need to hunt if it's not you thing, there are many other activities. If you do hunt, no unethical hunting will be allowed, which I appreciate very much. You work for your trophy. This is a farm,... More

Good fun, a nice relaxed environment with an excellent view of the surrounding mountains. Owner is friendly and accommodating, we had a mix of camping and a group dorm to ourselves. A lot of activities to do both in the farm itself, and within the area of Clarens. Braai areas are provided and although the campsite was very busy, no... More

If you are visiting Clarens and need a place to stay, look no further. Bokpoort's owners are probably the friendliest and most helpful hosts we have encountered. Their prices is more than reasonable considering what is included. We stayed in the chalets which had heaters, electric blankets, fully equipped kitchen, nice shower and private braai. They also have camping sites.... More

We went to Bokpoort during the April holidays and were pleasantly surprized by what we got. If you are looking for the authentic cowboy experience with awesome views and amazing hospitality, this is the place to go. Its economical, and truly makes you one with nature. It takes you from the city bug's life to being in the most placid... More
