Climb to the top of the mountain and walk along for incredible views and awesome rock formations.
There's nothing like a cool swim for beating the summer heat. There is a beautiful swimming pool near the chalets, (but far away enough for people to play without disturbing you in your siesta), where you can enjoy a refreshing swim, or a relaxing sunbathe on the loungers.
What a pleasure to explore the reserve by mountain bike! The farm roads are perfect for a lovely leisurely bike ride, away from noisy traffic. Hire one of our bikes for the day and and explore the farm.
While you are having your stroll or riding your bicycle, you will be sure to spot either the blesbok, impala, rooi hartebees, nyala, giraffe, warthog, baboon, or ostriches, as they pronk about, graze in the bush and on the plains, or have a drink at the water hole.
* Please note no private vehicles in the game park.
Horse Riding and Horse & Cart Carriage Trails:
The adjoining farm has a selection of horses for hire. There are organised trails to suit the rider with little or no experience, to two hour trails for experienced riders. You are also very welcome to bring your own horse along.

Received lovely warm welcome. Simple but quite adequate facilities - we had no problems. We had a 92 year old with us so could not stray too far from chalet which prevented us from exploring. Probably better to visit in the summer when we can swim. I would go there again.

We had an enjoyable 4 day stay both walking on the farm and in the accommodation when it rained. Just the right level of amenities for a relaxing nature experience. Add to that the low price and the rating is excellent.
