Certificate of Excellence
In the Franschhoek Valley on the banks of the Berg River, surrounded by vineyards and dramatic mountain views, Klein Waterval Riverside Lodge offers friendly country hospitality in a relaxed farm atmosphere. Comfortable double bedrooms, each with their own entrance and private terrace, overlook tranquil gardens and vineyards. A delicious wholesome farm breakfast is served, and for dinner, nearby Franschhoek buzzes with bistros and restaurants. Enjoy the magnificent swimming pool or unwind on the peaceful deck alongside the stream.

Conveniently located between Franschhoek and Stellenbosch, on the R45. Very helpful owner, who will book you the best restaurants and if necessary, your next accomodation. Nice view of the mountains and a small vineyard. Clean, good size rooms.
