We had 6 incredible days at Bokpoort this last week and were very sorry to leave. Totally relaxing place with scenic views, very comfortable accomodation close to Clarens. The hosts Christo and Helena Roos are like family to all newcomers, so welcoming to all guests. We have been there 3 times and each time is great. Come home totally relaxed.... More

If you plan to take your caravan to Bokpoort, don't. Our Sprite Swing took hammering driving the dirt road. Granted the drought has taken it's toll on the road but we were not able to exceed 10kph on the road towing our Van. Ablutions is very very rustic. We like to camp in comfort and the ablutions is not. The... More

I recently stayed at Bokpoort as I was part of the BMW Motorrad days event in Clarens. The accommodation is exactly what is being advertised, namely rustic. But I must ad, that besides being rustic, it fulfils all your basic requirements. If it’s a 5 star establishment you want, then don’t even contemplate going. The daily rate per person incl... More

Well, if you are looking for a weekend away with a difference, Bokpoort is the place!, leave behind the high heels, make up, hairdryer, laptop and ipad and escape into a cowboy/gal experience for a few days-Bokpoort offers soo many outdoor activities on a real cowboy horse farm. Christo and helena and the two ' cutie pies' they have for... More

Breathtaking scenery and beautiful horses. Couldn't get enough. Pictures do not do it justice. Even in winter and in the cold with snow on the mountains it was amazing. The Owners are hands on and we never needed for anything! Absolutely five star experience!

The road to Bokpoort were a surprise as we did not drive a 4x4. We arrived late and wanted to make use of the restaurant but were told they will not serve us as dinner were already served. The beautiful scenery waking up to the next morning made it all worth while. The kids enjoyed the horse riding. The facilities... More

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.
