Nestled in the Kouga Mountain range, Bo Kouga Mountain Retreat
provides the ultimate getaway from the chaos of modern city living.
Here on this 300 hectare mountain retreat you can explore nature at its best. Your stay promises laid back days of tranquility amidst fauna, flora and starlit nights.
Here you will find dramatic landscape, sensational panoramic mountain views and cool streams. Nature lovers will love Bo Kouga Mountain Retreat where birds fly in abandon, wild flowers carpet the countryside and the occasional leopards roam the mountain ravines.
We offer peace and quiet where you can set your own pace. Swim, walk, hike, or just laze around your cottage, the choice is yours. A third of the farm is unexplored mountains, which is ideal for hiking and discovering other vegetation and streams.
A wonderful experience is the excellent 45 minute walk though the Game Camp (with Springbok, Eland and Zebra) to the secluded permanent Waterfall where you can enjoy your own picnic, swim and relax surrounded by nature.
The farm buildings and accommodation have been extensively renovated. The interiors are well appointed with your utmost comfort in mind. Some of the out buildings date back to the 1860’s including two of the four cottages. We are ideally situated between the Garden Route, R62 and the Baviaanskloof. A country vacation at its best.
