Cederberg Guest Farm in the Sneeuberg Conservancy near Citrusdal
Boschkloof is situated in the Sneeuberg Conservancy, bordering on the Cederberg Conservancy; a vast wilderness area with dramatic mountain scenery, untouched Cape fynbos and an abundance of indigenous animal and bird species. Sightings of baboons, dassies (rock rabbits), otters, small deer and Black Eagles are not uncommon, with the protected Cape Leopard being more elusive.
