About Clarens Tourism Forum

Clarens is nestled peacefully in the bowl of the Rooiberge with breathtaking panoramic views. The surrounding mountains hold the historic memories of the area, beginning in a richly recorded prehistory that includes the discovery of the oldest, intact dinosaur embryos ever uncovered; exhibiting natural San rock-art in gigantic caves and on cliff faces; through fraught times and famous battles and concluding with our modern day. The famous rock formations in and around Clarens are named and used by villagers as part of their orientation; The Titanic, Mount Horeb and the Hol Krans, to name a few.

Art Galleries
Clarens hosts 23 art galleries which is more than any other town in South Africa. Aspirant artists in the village are well located for the best tuition by eminent residents and well established artists.

Successful art classes are regularly hosted and attended by people countrywide. One of the great pastimes when visiting the village of Clarens is strolling from one art gallery to another, buying art.

In addition to the Ash River rushing from the Khatse Dam to deliver pristine water to the Vaal, it affords exclusive, perennial and heart-stopping rafting experiences for adventurers visiting Clarens, ranging from rigorous outdoor adventures, to golf, fishing, riding, tennis, squash, hiking, birding, mountain biking, white water rafting, swimming in the waterfalls close by, joining a tour of the important prehistoric sites, visiting the battlefields, strolling through the village stopping to add to a collection of handmade knives forged by our knife maker, being treated in one of our day spas and listening to music performed by local musicians.
