Intimate & private celebrations

A birthday, an engagement, renewal of your wedding vows, or just time to get together with the friends and catch up on all the stories, memories and future plans, in a private, intimate and remote location amidst a nature reserve, working farm and antique interiors. If this sums up just about the perfect setting for your next celebration, then Bartholomeus Klip is your first choice!

Go for long walks in the nature reserve, up to the mountains, or take a picnic and settle somewhere under a tree, near the zebras and wildebees. Or gather around the braai at the deckhouse, and nibble on burned marshmellows while reminiscing about past, present and future with a golden sunset blinking in your eyes.

Memories are not only shared, but made, at Bartholomeus Klip. We have space for up to 16 guests - 6 in the free standing Wild Olive House, and 10 in the Victorian farmhouse. If you rent all beds, we can guarantee exclusivity at a special rate.
