Kliprivier is a small settlement located between Vereeniging and Henley on Klip.

The main item of interest to a visitor is the "Witkop Blockhouse". This blockhouse was built by the British army during the Anglo-Boer war and is one of around 50 left in South Africa. Sadly it, and the surrounding area, have not been well maintained and the state of the Witkop Blockhouse is of concern to many locals.
