History

History timeline chart

Wydekloof (farm number 453) is currently owned by the company Donkerbos Farms. In 1989 a Mr Basson, the previous owner of Bergstroom Farm (then known as Sorgvliet), registered a servitude to allow MCSA access to Wydekloof and Turret Peak. The costs to obtain the servitude were split between the Tygerberg, Stellenbosch and Cape Town sections (R2 500 each). This was the only way to secure access to the area after a dam was built that flooded and blockaded the original routes and campsite on a neighbouring farm, Vredelus.
