Kleinmond lies on a lagoon at the small mouth – hence the name meaning ‘little river mouth – of the Botriver on a narrow strip of land hugged on the one side by the Palmiet Mountain range and on the other by the Atlantic Ocean. Kleinmond is within easy driving distance from Cape Town, along the scenic coastal road known as R44 or Clarence Drive. Kleinmond is a peaceful little village endowed with some of the coast’s most natural beauty. It lies within the UNESCO declared Kogelberg Biosphere, which supports over 1 600 species of fynbos, of which 150 are endemic.
