In the peaceful and tranquil Boskloof valley lies the unspoiled Bovlei
guest farm, surrounded by the majestic Krakadouw and Cederberg mountains.
Bovlei is located a mere 10 kilometers from Clanwilliam.
Bovlei has been in the same Nieuwoudt family for several generations, all
farming with citrus and therefore many valuable memories have been created

The spectacular scenic beauty of the flower season is available all around
the farmhouse, but guests can also explore Lamberts Bay, Wupperthal,

available. The well known hiking trails (1/2/3 days) to Toringkop,

Self catering accommodation at Bovlei in the 100 year old farmhouse offers 4 double
