Area Attractions

Bushmen Paintings : the only known painting of a dassie on Schaapplaats Farm, a 20min walk from Kiara Lodge Fertility Caves : This is the biggest overhang in the Southern Hemisphere. It is a spiritual gathering place for various tribes and religions for over 800 years - People go there to pray and the area is considered as one of South Africa’s most sacred places. Golden Gate National Park : The park derives its name from the brilliant shades of gold cast by the sun on the park's sandstone cliffs, especially the imposing Brandwag rock, keeping vigil over the main rest camp. This 11 600 hectares of unique environment is true highland habitat, providing home to a variety of mammals & birds. Ribbokkop, the highest point in the park, reveals a breathtaking tapestry of red, yellow and purple hues as its warm shades merge with the cool mountain shadows towards evening. Definitely a hiker’s paradise! Mushroom Rock : Situated on the Clifton Farms a mere 3km from Clarens on the Fouriesburg Road Qwa Qwa National Park and Basotho Cultural Village : The village showcases the traditional Basotho tribe and takes you on a historical journey through the years of the South Sotho tribe. The National Park is mainly a hiker's world, but this park of 22 000 ha not only has a diversity of fauna, but also offers the discerning bird-watcher a rich variety of species. Indigenous fauna adorns the rolling, grassy plains, while Eland, Zebra, black Wildebeest, Blesbuck, red Hartebeest and Springbok go their way undisturbed. The abundance of veld flowers in Spring and Cosmos in Autumn makes a visit more than worthwhile. Surrender Hill : Surrender Hill is a historical site where more than 4000 Boers, under General Marthinus Prinsloo, surrendered to the British during the Anglo-Boer War. Surrender Hill is a memorial to fallen British soldiers & Boers. Situated about 10km from Clarens on the Fouriesburg Road. Titanic Rock : Clarens was incorporated as a town in 1912, the same year that the 'unsinkable' Titanic was launched. Tragically, the Titanic did sink and the event was a major topic of discussion for many months. During this time, a resident of the newly established Clarens, looking north from the little town towards Naauwpoort Nek, saw the prominent rock feature there and suggested that it looked like the Titanic, which is what it has been called ever since. Titanic Rock stands, sentry-like, to welcome and protect all who visit the village. Ash River Outfall: Forms part of the award-winning Lesotho Highlands Water Project – that supplies parts of Gauteng with sufficient water and forms part of the Vaal River System.
