It would be hard to find a better way to describe Anna and Chris Whitehouse's place than the site's own description: 'we seek to promote the wonder and enjoyment of God's world'.Whatever faith you have, even if it's purely in the natural beauty of this planet, you'll find Philipskop captivating.
Set along the mountains of the Klien River, you'll love the mixture of forest, secret valleys, rivers and caves. The activities on the reserve are really inventive: they have a geocaching route which is challenging enough to keep you busy for a morning but can be done with a smartphone's GPS and a guided walking trail to visit the only know rock art in this part of South Africa.
There are ample fun and naturally-available things to do, such as climbing in the Picnic Tree, or having a go on the Gum Tree Rope Swing. On offer are a collection of six detached self-catering cottages which are the size of houses as you can see! All filled with light, high ceilings and wonderful views across the reserve. Prices start at R1 400 ($98 / £78 / €94) per night based on two sharing. www.phillipskop.co.za
