Beautiful escape and amazing nature. Sunset on the hill is something to experience! Thank you for creating a place of tranquillity.
12 January 2017 - Cherise and Jacques
Great stay. Peaceful and quiet escape. Thanks!
7 January 2017 - Gundula and Maria
Just what the doctor ordered! Who knew luxury can come in such a humble package. It was truly a privilege to stay in the cottage. Thank you for allowing us to be guests on your farm/nature reserve. Keep up the conservation good work. It is people like you who will make the telling difference in the long run. Regards.
29 December 2016 – Morne, Johannesburg
Thank you for accommodating last minute bicycle tourists. What a wonderful, pleasant surprise at the end of a long, dust, hot ride! Ready to appreciate Baviaanskloof after a great rest. Thank you for the geology books – a pleasure to read by candle light. Wish we could stay longer – and hope to return. Thank you for your conservation efforts.
5 December 2016 – Steve and Mel, Madison, WI USA
Thank you so much for having us stay here for 3 weeks, it has been a real treat! Learning about all the different birds and looking through the camera trap footage of the leopard has been wonderful! The kids are bonkers (especially Charlie!) and the stars at night are incredible! All the best for the future and the research here! PS : thanks for the birthday cake! What a great place to turn 25!
December 2016 – Josey and Alex, UK
Have been volunteering for Krista and the Rockjumpers. Blue Hill is absolutely stunning, especially at sunrise! I really enjoyed my time and this climb, accompanied by Cape Rockjumpers. Cheers.
10 February 2016 - Christinna, Switzerland
Beautiful… as always! But not getting any easier.
This place is an inspiration as well as all the people I’ve met here. First time in SA, couldn’t have asked for more. Cheers to The Number One Ladies Rockjumper Agency!
24 December 2015 – Jenny from Canadia
Inspiring views in an inspiring part of the world. Thank you Alan for keeping this place special and wild. First Australian on Blue Hill ?
7 June 2015 – Ivan, Melbourne, Aus
Magnifique vue en haut de Blue Hill! Un temps magnifique malgré l’hiver. Merci Alan et Anja pour cette découverte. 1er Français à gravir Blue Hill, bon pour être dans le Guinness World Book. Un petit pas pour l’humanité, mas un grand pas pour moi!
7 June 2015 – Augustin from Montauban in France
Stunning views from the top of Blue Hill. Spotting Cape Rockjumpers at the top made it extra special. Thanks Alan for the opportunity to do such a lovely hike!
19 May 2015 – Brian Haslett
Great hike, up to incredible views! Searching for the elusive Hottentot Buttonquail.
19 May 2015 - Dale Wright, BirdLife South Africa
I followed a bird (or the idea of a bird) and found myself on top of Blue Hill. It was worth it for the stunning views!
19 May 2015 – Daniel Cloete
Thank you so much for a wonderful stay. Best wishes to you and your family.
4 May 2015 – Mary and Leigh Dale, USA
Thank you so much for an incredible 5 weeks. We have loved every minute and are really sad to be leaving! The food is delicious, kids are hilarious, and Chutney is just adorable (even with his biting...) you have all been incredibly welcoming and we've learnt a lot about the area and wildlife. We've really enjoyed being in such a remote place away from civilization – many hours have been spent staring at that unbelievable night sky! We're really going to miss you guys and this place. Good luck with the business and research – we look forward to see the results. Take care and keep in touch.
25th March 2015 – Ruby and Dan (Dassie + Cape bunting)
The Sugarbird Valley Loop hike was the highlight of our 2 night 1 day stay. It is so quiet, once can hear one's heart beating. The vegetation, rock formations and birdlife is amazing. The meerkat's antics were heart-warming. What a lovely start to the new year!
1 January 2015 – Bernadette and Len, Pretoria
What a stunning view, I love how the clouds stream over the mountains like glaciers in the distance and how from up here I can see where I was watching for Rockjumpers in Sugarbird valley. A beautiful day.
21 November 2014 - Christina
We just love this quiet here. So different from the hustle and bustle of city life. The cottage is absolutely perfect. Our bed was super-duper – had a very good quiet night's sleep – nice and warm with enough blankets. My husband made a huge fire in the fireplace and I sat till very late reading James Herriot – one of my favourites for many years. Thank you, Alan and Anja – you've really made a very good job here. May God bless you and your children forever.
9th October 2014 – Philip and Wena
Die vier Tage hier bei euch waren wunderbar! Nachdem wir 6 Wochen lang rast- und atemlos durch 7 afrikanische Länder gereist sind, fühlten sich die ruhigen, sonnigen Stunden auf der Terrasse des Cottage tatsächlich (endlich!) wie Urlaub an! Die gemeinsame Zeit mit euch, mit dir, Anja, ließen mich ganz vergessen, dass wir uns tatsächlich seit 5 Jahren nicht gesehen hatten! Du bist um Vieles zu beneiden hier, die wunderschöne Umgebung und die unendliche Ruhe. Ich hoffe, dass wir uns bald wiedersehen, auch wenn wir auf verschiedenen Kontinenten leben. Ihr seid auf jeden Fall immer in China willkommen (falls du mal Sehnsucht nach einer Megastadt bekommen solltest). Vielen Dank für alles und genießt das Leben in diesem abgeschiedenen Paradies!
19 August 2014 – Sandra + Graham
Thank you, thank you Alan and Anja, for sharing a little of the peace and beauty of you haven. What an incredible fam! It's been a privilege to stay here and start to slow my city pace down to farm pace. The quietness is like medicine. This was just the post PhD break I needed. With the exciting fireworks to boot! Thanks for your company and care. I hope to see you again, without such a gap this time. Also that by the time I return you have a thicket of happy Proteas in the river bed. Warmth and care to you all.
17 July 2014 – Wendy Foden
First time on Blue Hill for everybody of us. Adrien and Jessey want to go again next week (without Hannah) to break the record. Beautiful view!
Adrien, Jessey and Hannah
What a privilege and treat to cohabit this beautiful mountain for a few hours, along with its amazing, courageous plants and all these ancients rocks. Thanks Al and Anja for sharing it with me. Congratulations and thank you for all the rehabilitation and care of this global asset.
15 July 2014 – Wendy Foden
First time in South Africa and first time volunteering abroad. Having a wonderful time at Blue Hill Escape and will take beautiful memories back to Edinburgh.

Doing my internship at Blue Hill Escape for 4 weeks. Amazing windy view! You have to go to the top of the Bloukop if you are staying at Blue Hill Escape! Cheers and GO Holland + Chutney + Alan.
22 May 2014 - Ted Lennaerts
Elena and Charlie’s first time up Blue Hill. Mommy and daddy very tired!
4 May 2014 – Alan, Anja, Elena and Charlie
Everything we loved was here. Lovely clean cottage, magnificant bird-watching, awesome hiking and rock formations, plants, etc, etc. Thank you very much.
4 May 2014 - Danny and Christine, Somerset West
The silence is so "still". Lovely spot hope we can come back and do some walks. Thank you!
19 April 2014 - Mike and Carol
Dette er virkelig et fantastisk omrade og fantastiske folk. Anja og Alan (+ Elena og Charlie) er opriktige og äbne. Mens vi var her oplevede vi stor natur og god mach. Vi häber engang at vi kan returnere hertil. (Danish)
Dear Anja and Alan, you are both wonderful hosts and sincere people with a foolproof attitude towards life and living in the "wild". We enjoyed our stay very much. The nature around here withholds many adventures not yet discovered and realized. Beautiful light, "mystical" animals luring hither and dither. Birds singing high and low, the eclectic feeling of observing a wildcat! The cottage was a fantastic place to relax and set back time, living a life with few worries and fresh air ad libitum. We had some intriguing walks around the area, scouting for wildlifeand feeling the heat drenched air penetrating both our clothes and minds. The believe here - we think - is that cold times are coming. With winter nights lacking centigrades, curtains drawn to preserve heat, firewood continuously heading for the burning furness of the oven, animals retracting to a cold mode of survival. This we would like others to experience!! As Northerners (Norway and Denmark) cold is an attraction :-), the constant thought of keeping warm that demands attention, night and day, yet when resolved the life out here gives one so much in return, an inner sense of calmness and tranquility that quickly fills the hours. We are definitely coming back, and hope for others that they also take the chance of living this life of simplicity.
10 April 2014 - Bente Siv Steinhovden and Knut Hillers
Bernhard, Helmut und Udo fanden dieses wunderschöne Tal trotz Navi. Was für ein Glück, denn die Freundlichkeit und Herzlichkeit der Wirtsleute haben uns für alles entschädigt. Zu erwähnen sind noch die nette Unterkunft und das gute Essen. Wir wünschen den beiden für die Zukunft immer ein volles Haus. Ich komme wieder!
19 January 2014 - Bernie aus Somerset West
Wonderful. One night is not enough. We really hope to come back in future!
27 December 2013 - Blackie, Edith and sons, Rustenburg
SUPER SUPER, from the moment we arrived we were at home, the Swartberg is the home away from home, we enjoyed our stay and will surely be back. Thank you for the friendliness and chats. Elena and Jessica and James sure had some fun. Sorry for the broken shells. We hope to see you guys soon.
16 December 2013 - Dorian, Mariette, Mare, Jessica and James Phillips, Benoni, Johannesburg
Really great breakaway for us - thanks for your hospitality! Highlight was to find those elusive rock art pictures... - wonderful. Hope to see you (in de Rust?) again.
26 November 2013 - Ruth and Jeff
Vielen Dank für drei erholsame Tage bei Euch, eine tolle Geländewagen-Tour (Chris), nette Gespräche und tolle Pasta. Wir empfehlen Euch weiter.
11 November 2013 - Katrin, Tichi und Baby Sophie
Wir hatten wunderschöne Ferientage mit Euch. Das Cottage hat viel Atmosphäre. Tritt man vor die Türe, dann ist man mitten in der Natur. Man kann morgens um 7 Uhr bereits seinen Morgenkaffee in der Morgensonne auf dem Bänkchen auf der Terrasse genießen, den Vögeln lauschen und dem Gesumme der Bienen. Am Abend kann man den grandiosen Sternenhimmel auf dem gleichen Bänkchen bewundern. Herrliche Wandertouren, die gute südafrikanische Kost und der exquisite Wein hoben unsere Stimmung. Dazu rundeten die freundlichen und aufmerksamen Gastgeber unseren erholsamen Afrikaurlaub ab. Dazu kommt, dass nach einem Regentag schnell die Sonne wieder trocknet und wärmt. Bestimmt kommen wir wieder.
4 November 2013 - Karl und Elfi
Beautiful and peaceful! Quiet and serene! Lovely walks and cozy fireplace! Thanks for your hospitality!
22 September 2013 - Lidia and Micky Milne, Hermanus
We have really enjoyed ourselves! The hut is really clean and cute and the fireplace is really warm! Didn't have time to do all the walks, we'll have to come back and do them some other time. Love the hot water bottles and the view. Nice and peaceful out here, WILL BE BACK!!!
8 July 2013 - Peter, Colleen and Molly Ryan
It was a wonderful 2 days. Very excited by finding Leucadendron
sorocephalodes and Paranomus esterhuyseniae. New to the current Outramps
Group. Climbed Mt 1496 m instead of Blue Hill which leaves something for
next time. We'll be back in spring. Thanks to Chris, Elaine, Anja and
Alan for your great hospitality. Good luck with the new baby, Anja, and
"sterkte" to Elena.
15 May 2013 - Di, Jean, Bill, Gail, Rusell - Outramps CREW Group, Southern Cape
What a lovely break away! The silence certainly has healing
power, birdsong and nightsounds sweet lullaby. Stars a mindblowing roof
and mirror to our small existence. Keep up the conservation and rehabilitation

We came from Namibia to help Alan towards qualifying for his ringer's

A beautiful tranquil place, a number of bird species we had not ringed
before and a most enjoyable few days.

After a three hour drive we ended up in this unusual place. We were very
excited to get to the house as they caught a leopard for it to get a radio
collar on and to free it afterwards. Sorry that we missed it by one hour,
especially as my husband is going to stay three weeks with the "Cape
Leopard Trust" as a volunteer and sponsor. Another bonus was that
a ringer stayed on the farm to teach Alan how to ring small birds, this
was quite interesting for us. So we decided to extend our stay as we liked
it so much. Did some very interesting birding with Alan, made beautiful
walks and enjoyed the hospitality of Alan and Anja. A pity we had to move

And the best of all was no cell phone reception, so no one could get hold
of us!!! Thanks so much!!
