CLANWILLIAM | SOUTH AFRICA
A SECLUDED OASIS
On the rooibos and buchu farm, Lambertshoek, at the foot of Engelsman se Berge (Englishman’s Mountains), you will find Boegoeberg.
This great escape is perhaps best known for its 4×4 trail, that attained Top Ten status in Drive Out magazine’s iconic guide many years ago. Drive, ride or hike to the summit, and you can see Graafwater, Elands Bay, Lambert’s Bay, and Clanwilliam, on a clear day.
The camping area, with its well thought-out lapa, ablution blocks, abundance of shade, power points at each site, and a huge swimming pool, are some of the reasons why Boegoeberg is loved by families, couples, and single explorers. Boegoeberg also offers rooms, cottages, and rough, secluded accommodation on the mountain.
Lambertshoek is renowned for its rooibos tea and buchu, the latter which grows in the mountains. To reach the buchu, multiple mountain tracks were formed over many decades, and this is how the 4×4 trail originated.
