With so many activities in and around Bergrivier, you’ll never run out of things to do!
Nature-lovers would appreciate the variety of fauna and flora in the area. Currently, we have a bird list that includes 171 species–and we’re still counting! Those wanting to get active can hike or run along any of our seven scenic hiking trails. Our newest addition is an exciting 4×4 route that takes you to the top of the hills, the valley, and the river.
Choose from six different hiking trails. The shortest trail is 3 km long and take about an hour to complete, whereas the most difficult trail is 12 km in length and can take up to eight hours to complete.
This is a paradise for birdwatchers. The beautiful Knysna Loerie is seen quite often. Crown Eagles have nested in the “kloof” close by, so you often see an eagle soaring over the hills. The call of the Fish Eagle is also occasionally heard. At night you could hear the call of the Night Jar.
Many of the routes take you to the river and some offer beautiful views of the waterfall and mountain pools which is ideal for swimming. There’s also a dam at the campground for swimming.
This route consists of a valley loop, mountain loop, and river loop, and ranges from easy to moderate to difficult. Bookings are essential and we are open seven days a week.
Stargazing enthusiasts will be in the seventh heaven when viewing the clear starlit skies of the Eastern Cape.
You can use these facilities as your home base to explore the many attractions in the vicinity, or you may just want to enjoy the scenic views from the deck, or go for a hike on the many trails. Horseback riding is available nearby at Papiesfontein, 20km on the way to Jeffreys Bay. For those who are interested in mountain biking, our 4×4 route is available to use as a mountain biking route. The JBay Bike Park is only 7km away as well.
