We stayed in Appaloosa. We won't return in a hurry (nor advise anyone else to stay here either). I cannot think why anyone would want to spend time here. We knew the accommodation would be basic (judging by the rate pppn) but basic is not the same as dilapidated. The unit itself is fairly tired: a broken toilet seat, paper... More

We have been camping there over Easter 2015. Accommodation prices excellent. Setting, excellent, although the camping area is, in my opinion, seen by the owners as a bonus even though they only have two chalets and a dilapidated dormitory. Everything else ridiculously expensive, in fact I think it's a rip off, e.g. clay pigeon shooting five shots (with a pump... More

Fantastic setting with beautiful views and very quiet. We camped at Bokpoort and although quite basic, it was everything we needed and very reasonably priced. Helena spoiled us rotten on the Saturday night with an excellent braai! Will go there again.

Spectacular riding, tough little horses that scramble over rocks like goats - so surefooted, herds of wildebeest, eland, reedboc and bleesboc in the mountains around us, and at times close to us, with buzzards overhead. Odd glimpses of meerkats and jackals. Mountain streams were crossed, or enjoyed as a stop. Cliffs and wonderful rock formations. This trip far surpassed my... More

Beautiful setting and great service. Fantastic horse trails between the mountains of Clarens with well trained horses. They'll definitely see me again soon as it was one of the best trips I've had thus far! 😀

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
