Klawer is a tranquil, beautiful little Cape West Coast town, which lies on the banks of the Olifants River and is nestled in amongst the Matzikamma Mountains. 

Klawer which means clover was given its name due to all the wild clover that used to grow here prolifically.  

There’s so much to experience in and around Klawer such as river rafting on the nearby Doring River, hiking on trails where San rock art can be viewed and visiting the Klawer Wine Cellar, where exclusive wine tours and tastings can be done.

From late July to September the area is covered with flourishing wild flowers, and is one of the reasons, other than wine, that visitors come here. Klawer is the central point from which places such as Lambert’s Bay, Strandfontein, Vredendal, Clanwilliam and Vanrhynsdorp are easily accessible.
