Woodcliffe is a 1000 ha cattle farm extending into the upper slopes of the Southern Drakensberg in the north Eastern Cape and is situated 22km from Maclear. Nearby is the remarkable Naude's Nek pass, at 2 620m, the highest mountain pass in South Africa.

On the slopes of the Southern Drakensberg near Maclear, where the valleys and waterways cut and gouge their way to the sea, can be found what many describe as the ultimate 'eco' experience.

At Woodcliffe the peaks of the high berg soar to touch the sky. Cascading waterfalls laugh and chatter through the stunning riverine landscapes, where indigenous forests cling. Here the call of birds without number chase the sound of city life. Woodcliffe is a delight for the ecotourist, hiker, artist, photographer, birder and fisherman.

Woodcliffe is a treasure for those who enjoy the enduring majesty of high mountains and lush valleys.
