Deep in the Langeberg mountains faraway from the hustle and bustle of city life, you will find Simonskloof Mountain Retreat. Situated 50 km from Montagu in the Western Cape Province of South Africa, only a 2? hour drive from Cape Town.


Simonskloof is a tranquil and remote mountain retreat and offering three self catering cottages and 8 shaded and secluded campsites. The bush style showers are heated by donkey boilers and with the clean and comfortable compost toilets add to our down to earth and eco friendly set-up.

Kloofing and Abseiling in the Nuy River Gorge are available as well as 60km of Mountain Bike trails and a network of over 45km of adventurous hiking trails.

Over the years we?ve created a network of hiking trails leading up the mountain to panoramic lookout points up to 1300m and with views into the Nuy River Gorge. Our border collie, eagerly guides you on your hikes. The ultimate one, the Gecko Trail, is a multi day trekking adventure traversing the Langeberg.

For swimming our farm dam and the little rock pools are the perfect places to cool down in the Summer heat and also a perfect location for bird watching.

For the ultimate wilderness experience try: Bushwhacking, abseiling, boulder hopping, swimming, and bivouacking under the starry full moon sky ? this is in short the most adventurous Kloofing?in the total solitude of the Nuy River Gorge. Further more there?s a guided 60m Abseil on the edge of the gorge and over 40 km of MTB trails to keep you fit.
