Bev and Duncan Bonnett
Rhino Retreat Clarens is based in the heart of Clarens, the jewel of the Free State SA.Situated a mere 950m from the vibe of the town centre, but secluded enough to offer you a quiet retreat.With breathtaking views of Mount Horeb and the Maluti Mountains in Lesotho, you are bound to relax. Whilst we can accommodate up to 8 people, we welcome smaller groups too! The house is rented per day, irrespective of the size of the group (under 8).
Duncan and I have always had a passion for the outdoors, fresh air and beautiful mountains. We chose Clarens to build our holiday home so we could share this with our guests. Not only does Clarens offer the perfect holiday retreat, it offers many activities in and around the town. A good stop over for a trip to Lesotho!
There too many fabulous restaurants to list, as well as several art galleries, gin tasting, craft beer and plenty of activities including golf, hiking and extreme sports.
