Clarens Village Conservancy

The mountains around the village are part of the Clarens Village Conservancy, and are protected by locally employed Rangers who help preserve the natural beauty of the area, clearing MTB and Hiking paths, and most importantly, maintaining the indigenous nature of the area. The Conservancy dam is a much loved swimming spot among locals when the summer heat bakes the sandstone, and it’s the perfect way to cool down after a long hike through kloofs and caves up to the top the world.


The surrounding geology shows millions of years of the earth’s timeline in its layers and colors, bands of sandstone and basalt sandwiching the red mud of ancient seas and dinosaur fossils, and the rock art of the first men are all in abundance in the cliffs and caves of Clarens.


Beyond the village there is a wealth of history and adventure in the mountains around Clarens and the Golden Gate Park just down the road.
