Heavenly Hamlet Lost in Time and Tranquility
Time stood still in this pristine rural community where artists and farmers both tap creative energy from the rich soil and fertile hills and dales that sustain a myriad rare plant and animal species.
A scenic 25 km drive from Gansbaai en-route to Cape Agulhas brings you to this tranquil hamlet where a versatile group of homefolk mainly live off the abundantly yielding cattle farms and horsesteads bordering ever-changing landscapes of vineyards, olive plantations and multi-hued fynbos flower-farms
One can easily miss the quaint village fringing the marshy Bushman’s River. A small selection of artsy, popular eating places boasting locally produced cuisine, wines and artwork, as well as a general dealer store, the historical B'bos church and a charming generic styled little community centre are the only signs of human society in an oasis of untouched natural beauty.
Anchored in sprawling landscapes of flowering fynbos and forest-clad hills and valleys with mountain streams feeding the diverse fauna and flora, the area offers stunning trails for horse-riding, hiking and 4x4 drives through a lively bird- and animal kingdom.
The serene valley is also inspiration and home to an acclaimed artist community and the Baardskeerdersbos Boereorkes. The popular B’Bos Art Route is open to visitors on selected open-weekends. Come treat yourself to exquisite artwork and true country cuisine and hospitality at the home studios of local artists and crafters in striking natural settings.
