Verlorenkloof started off as a dairy farm and has grown to also offer accommodation.
Our accommodation has done so well that we now boast Gold Crown status with RCI. We are looking to expand on our Agritourism so that we can reach a greater market, including overseas tourists. If we can achieve this we can boost our accommodation and our uplifting and employment of our local community.

    Aspect Rating Notes
            Accommodation circle1 The 23 well equipped Crofts (small, modest dwelling built with local material) are private, spacious and well located on the 1600 hectare property. Each offers various sleeping arrangements, mostly ensuite with space for up to 10 people. Serviced daily. Internal fireplace and outside braai lapa. Self-catering with optional meals from the main lodge.
            Safety circle1 Verlorenkloof is surrounded by mountains and rivers. There is only one access road controlled with either remote or manned security access. No alarms or burglar proofing in Croft houses. Long relations with staff (all living on the farm) dating back to several generations. Biggest risk is probably the vervet monkeys.
            Leisure activities circle1 Fly-fishing in trout dams, hiking and mountain biking on well marked trails, birding, botany, archaeology, swimming in rock pools, guided horse riding. Trail and road running.
            Farm activities circle1 Verlorenkloof is a busy, working cattle and dairy farm with their own products such as yoghurt, labneh, feta, and freshly baked bread. Visitors are encouraged to interact with staff members and participate in all the daily farm activities, including visits to the dairy.
            Value for money circle1 The exceptional accommodation options spread over the natural splendour with panoramic views of the area. They offer reasonable rates for both timeshare owners or occasional rentals.
