Experience the enchantment of Clarens nestled in the majestic arms of the Maluti Mountains & Rooiberg Mountains

It’s not for nothing that Clarens is widely acknowledged as the Jewel of the Free State. The valley at the foothills of the Maluti Mountains and held in embrace by the Rooiberg Mountains, is one place that really belongs on any nature lover’s bucket list.

For that matter, those who love history and those who enjoy the great outdoors, should also be sure to add this breathtaking village and valley to their bucket lists!

The Rooiberg Mountains, known in English as the Red Mountains, are very aptly named for the sandstone formations that bring to life rich shades of ochre, orange, yellow, brown and pink as the sun shifts through the day, making sunrises and sunsets absolutely spectacular.

Occasional thunder storms set the stage for stunning displays of lightening against the backdrop of the Maluti Mountains that’ll take your breath away, without even having to leave your room at Clarens Eddies!
