Review: Kiepersolkloof near Rustenburg, South Africa

All good things come to an end, and unfortunately, this was also the case for our big road trip in South Africa. For 3 months we’ve been driving through the country visiting all those wonderful places, but we made sure to leave a special treat for the very end of our trip. The couple of days before we would fly out of the country, we spent at one of the world’s largest naturist domains: Kiepersolkloof.

How to get to Kiepersolkloof
Kiepersolkloof is located about 45 minutes drive from the city Rustenburg in the North West province. If that name doesn’t ring a bell, better points of reference are probably Johannesburg and Pretoria, which are both about 2.5 hours away.

Johannesburg is also home to South Africa’s largest airport, OR Tambo, which has direct connections to many major airports around the world. This is also where most foreign visitors will have their first steps on South African soil.

It’s impossible to get to Kiepersolkloof via public transport, so you’ll need a car. Preferably one that’s a bit off the ground as the last part of the road is a dirt track that’s all but smooth. There are plenty of rental car offices in OR Tambo airport. We chose an alternative solution and arranged this part of our trip with Joxilox Tours.

Coming from OR Tambo airport, you want to take the R21 north continuing on the N1 north in Pretoria. North of Pretoria, you connect to the N4 direction Rustenburg. Once you get past Rustenburg, you want to start using your GPS.

Where to stay at Kiepersolkloof
With a domain of more than 200 hectares, Kiepersolkloof is one of the largest naturist resorts in the world. But this doesn’t reflect the number of accommodations. There are only 15 villas on the domain which are all privately owned. Less than a handful of these are being rented out to visitors.

We stayed at The Manor House, which had a very large bedroom with 2 double beds. There is a large, fully equipped kitchen and a private bathroom with a bath. We never took a bath here though, because right outside were the outdoor showers of the campsite which we could appreciate a lot more during the warm summer days.

The most popular accommodation option for local guests is the campsite. There are several camping pitches in the central area close to the swimming pool, but there are also others further away for those who really want to be surrounded by nothing but nature.

What to do at Kiepersolkloof
Nature is everything at Kiepersolkloof. Thanks to its huge domain, there are endless possibilities to enjoy nature in all its forms. We especially appreciated the many different hiking trails. For those of …
