About DanielsHoogte Private Reserve

DanielsHoogte is a working farm rich in fynbos and situated at the top of Aurora Mountain, approximately 800 metres above sea level. This hidden gem boasts spectacular views of St Helena Bay on the beautiful West Coast as well as the farmlands of Piketberg to the east. On a clear day Table Mountain is visible in the far distance.

DanielsHoogte offers a relaxed country getaway, far enough from the hustle and bustle of city life. We have three self-catering mountain cottages situated in various locations on the farm.

This private reserve boasts much fauna and flora to be appreciated by any lover of the outdoors. It is a bird watcher’s haven, with 85 different bird species having been sighted thus far. The Protea Atlas Project has identified several endangered and endemic protea species in the reserve.

Hikers and cyclists are able to explore and enjoy the natural surrounds with many rocky outcrops and bushman paintings to view. You can cool off in one of our dams on a hot summer's day. Please note there is a minimum charge per night for Aristea, Chink and Disa apply, hence we advise guests to request the appropriate tariffs.

The welcome from the owner wasn't overly friendly. He moaned because i was 8 minutes early!! I would have been quite happy to wait but his abrasive attitude was not what i was expecting. Then complained because i didnt pay the balance in cash. He had told me i could pay in cash but i didnt know it was a requirement, rather than just an option. The safarinow email prompted me to pay the balance electronically and i didnt query it.

We loved it...bundu bashing walks...black eagles soaring....and endless stars....great experience to camp in a cave....food for the soul.....a amazing place with us.

There are few campsites where one can stay in a natural cave which is accessible by road and has hot and cold running water. We particularly like the fact that the campsite is secluded. There are no neighbouring campers, one has the whole mountainside to ones-self. Other highlights are: A good sunset view of the sea, beautiful natural vegetation with a wealth of birdlife, great protection from the wind, a large and spacious cave and a wonderful area to explore for the bold and adventurous scrambler of rocks.

Far above the restless world below, even in high season, this beautiful farm offers peace and quiet rest to those looking for a proper break-away.The accommodation is very basic, thus may not be everyone's cup of tea, but we enjoyed the clean simplicity. It was fun preparing food on an in-house braai fire in a century old house. Personal touch from owner to ensure any requirements are looked after.
