The Baviaanskloof Wilderness Area lies approximately 120 km west of Port Elizabeth and comprises of approximately 270 000 hactare of unspoiled, rugged mountainous terrain. Starting in the east at Komdomo, the road leads through the rugged beauty of the "Grootrivier" Gorge on its winding path through this pristine conservancy, all the way towards Willowmore in the west. A total distance of about 203 km. The area offers a wide range of eco-recreational opportunities as well as an unique wilderness experience! The Baviaanskloof is an UNESCO World Heritage Site as it was elected as one of the reserves to represent the Cape Floral Kingdom (fynbos) as a UNESCO site. The area is absolutely awesome and a nature lovers paradise. Unfortunately the road through the valley is only accessible with a high clearance 4x4 or offroad motorcycles.
