The Baviaans Kloof Nature Reserve is an area of pure nature close to Port Elizabeth, which is not very known to travellers and visitors to the Garden Route.
It's worth a visit because of the untouched landscape, the road adventure and the unspoiled culture of Eastern Cape farming.
Kloof is Africaans and means gorge. "oo" is not spoken like an "u", but like "ua". Baviaans is a baboon. So the Baviaans Kloof is the gorge where the baboons live.
