We were a couple of friends who camped at Bokpoort before and after doing a hiking trail. It suited us very well as it is close to Golden Gate and not too far from Clarens either. Although we only got to sleep over for two nights, it was still memorable with the beautiful surroundings and horses grazing. The two nights...

Had a very nice stay at Bokpoort Cowboy Ranch and was very well looked after by management. Beautiful scenery between the mountains and nice place to set up tent for a overnight stay and not situated far from Clarens or Golden Gate. Lots of activities to do! Will certainly visit again in future. Thanks!

The owners are not very helpful or friendly. Dirt road and nothing really to see or do. DON'T GO WITH A TENT. The wind will blow you away. Very very primitive. No television. Dogs bother you. make yourself ready for lots and lots of flies.

bokpoort, Owner at Bokpoort Cowboy Ranch, responded to this review

You forgot that i told your son not to put up the tent in the camping area, but next to your chalet, so it would not blow away if you and them took my friendly advice. And by the way im not the one who creates the wind. This is a cowboy ranch if you know, so normally at a...

The "road" to bokpoort is poor, but navigable. The horse riding is great fun in Western style saddles, the scenery amazing and galloping across the rolling grasslands gives you a true cowboy experience. For the price and work they're put through , I would have expected the horses to be better fed. The bits are also very harsh and seemingly...

Firstly, I would like to make it clear that this review is only with regards to the Bokpoort venue, the bar and the Horse Back riding activity as I did not overnight here. The area is about 5 minute's drive from Clarens central. The road (which is unpaved) is easy to reach as there are numerous signs showing the way....

Came to Bokpoort for their two hour outride and loved every minute of it. The horses are well taken care of and are calm and gentle. The ride is easy so if you're a beginner you will still manage easily. You can go at your own pace and if you want to canter and gallop you can stay upfront or...

We phoned and inquired about a caravan site. We were informed that the road was fine for towing a caravan. Unfortunately this is not so. The road is awful for towing a caravan, we travelled the 4km at about 10-20kmph. We arrived and I proceeded to the reception, where I waited for 10 minutes calling out in the pub, diningroom...
