Clarens Eddies is the gateway to a world of breathtaking views and exhilarating adventure.

There is a holiday destination in South Africa that offers breathtaking views of mountain range upon mountain range framing trees that change hue throughout the year as they loom over wild flowers and fynbos that cycle through metamorphosis in character and shape as each season gives birth to the next, a destination that is the essence of what a holiday to get away from it all really means and to still indulge in excitement and adventure, this is Clarens in all her glory!

The energy of the surroundings and the people of Clarens all vibrate together to create a picturesque village that is an eclectic mix of art, gifts and food, making a stroll around President Square one that could hold you captive for hours as you browse through shops that display everything from pottery to candles and ethnic art, and everything in between.
