The word Baviaanskloof, although derived from the Dutch 'valley of baboons', is associated with pristine nature, narrow gorges with flowing streams, steep mountain passes, vast plains with waving grasslands and views of unspoiled wilderness.
Nature has taken its course over thousands of years to create what is today universally recognized as the Baviaanskloof World Heritage Site.
Few other places in the world hold evidence of the footprint of human history spanning over a million years. The narrow valley of the Baviaanskloof is just under 200 kilometres in length and bounded by two mountain ranges: the Baviaanskloof Mountains on the north and the Kouga mountains on the south side. The valley lies at a lower altitude than the Karoo in the north
