Williamsburg Mountain Reserve

Williamsburg Mountain Reserve is testimony to the unspoilt beauty of the Langkloof Mountains that border the spectacular Prince Alfred Pass. Nestling in a hidden valley, surrounded by lofty mountains this magnificent farm enjoys an old world pace of life. Much of the farm is a working farm, with sheep and cattle grazing on lush pastures. To venture further you will meet inquisitive Springbok or the Grey Rhebok. On our 3000 ha are two charming Cape cottages, fully equipped but retaining the charm and grace of an era passed. Although deceptively quiet with only the birds and insects to disturb your reverie, there is much to do. Game is plentiful and birds are abundant. We also offer walks following streams to lofty outlooks, 30 kms of spectacular 4x4 trails to inspire whether by 4x4 or mountain bike. Trout fish our pristine dams in the early morning to the call of the Fish Eagle . A favourite destination of birders and star gazers or simply a place to listen to your soul. Never a place to forget. Proud member of the Keurbooms Conservancy.

  • "Escape to Scenery and Silence"

    03 January 2014

    "Our recent visit to Williamsburg was friendly, clean, comfortable and low-key, but very relaxing. Kransberg cottage had everything one could wish for. Some of the hiking trails proper looked a bit overgrown - must be a 4x4 enthusiast's paradise!"

    "We only stayed one night but wished we had more time to spend there. It cottages are excellently equipped and manage to marry a rustic feel with modern convenience. We will definitely be going back another time."

  • "The location is stunning"

    19 January 2009

    " We were looking for peace, quite and solitude.At Williamsburg we find them all in ample proportions.The location is stunning being set in the mountains, well "off the beaten track" and at the end of a branch road serving a couple of farms.This is definitely back to the silence of nature and remote farm living.You can hear the valley breath. Kransberg Cottage was homely and contained just about everything one could possibly need.There was not a single item that we did not find available.Nigel Williams was an excellent host and was attentive.He was on site when we arrived (about 30 mins late due to poor road conditions and slow travelling) and briefed us on the farm and what was available in respect of walks and 4x4 trails. Most especially the thing we appreciated was his very obvious commitment to the development of the Keeurboms Conservancy and its leopard friendly management ethos.We wish that all farmers and custodians of the wild places had such similar vision. In conclusion we give this a good 5* rating in meeting our needs.I cannot say this about many of places we visit.If people want to jol, party and be self centred then Williamsburg is not for them."
