What to do
The Yellow Aloe Guest House offers guests the convenience of being close to the bustling town of Clanwilliam but provides the serenity and privacy offered to those who venture into the quiet surrounding mountains.
Each guest room, cosy corner and garden nook is uniquely designed with a personal touch and tells a tale of relaxation and rejuvenation. We invite you to reconnect with nature and explore one of the country’s most spectacular landscapes with the peace of mind of having a gentle, luxurious place to return to at the end of each adventure-filled day.
We have information available including maps of the hiking trails in the Cederberg, areas of interest and knowledge on what to see, and what to experience and enjoy in our immediate surrounds.
There’s no place like this place anywhere near this place… So this must be the place!
Where you’ll find us
Yellow Aloe is situated in the main street of Clanwilliam, alongside historical buildings such as the old jail, Clanwilliam Wild Flower Church, Ramskop Nature Reserve and the town’s popular museum and art gallery. The rooibos factory shop, as well as the internationally known Strassberger shoe factory, are within walking distance of the guesthouse’s entrance, as is the tourism office which is situated across the street.
Avid boating and fishing enthusiasts are a short drive from the entrance to Clanwilliam dam, and nature lovers are without a doubt spoilt for choice when looking for walking trails and nature hikes to explore within the world-renowned Rocklands bouldering/rock-climbing area of the Cederberg. The Cape Nature protected areas of the mountain range are pristine and make for breath-taking photographic backdrops for those visitors who wish to simply relax and breathe in the natural beauty that surrounds them well capturing snapshots and memories to take back home.
