Piekenierskloof Mountain Resort

Lori Carter – 01.04.2022
I can think of no better resort for weary parents to bring their little ones for a getaway. Kids are entertained by highly qualified staff while parents relax by the pool or try their hand at one of the many exciting outdoor activities. Afterwards, sample some of the many wow-worthy meals meticulously prepared by the resident chefs and their talented staff. Piekenierskloof is far enough away from the city to instill a sense of getting away, whilst at the same time being within easy driving distance from prominent towns and cities, as well as an international airport. If you haven’t made the trip out to this incredibly gem tucked away in the Cederberg yet, you’re seriously missing out! My daughter, Olivia-Yvette (6), wholeheartedly agrees that this is the best fun spot ever!

Magda coetsee – 01.04.2022
