Kinmel Guest Farm Activities:
Enjoy invigorating hikes in the surrounding mountains, swim in the river or play in the rock pools, go fly-fishing, walking, bird watching and mountain biking, top that with Winter snow-skiing at the nearby Tiffindell. Savour the scenery on many famous mountain pass trails, enjoy a leisurely picnic beneath the willows down by the river, or you can simply put your feet up, relax and enjoy the splendour which the Southern Drakensberg has to offer.
Wild rainbow trout swimming side by side with elusive yellow fish abound in the Bell River, making it a fly-fisherman's paradise. Kinmel has its own stretch of the Bell River, specifically reserved for our guests only. The region also boasts a number of dams and more than 200 km of rivers and crystal clear running water in which to cast your fly.
We also are a fully functional active farm where guests and especially children are invited to acquaint themselves with a variety of farm animals. We fully support the principles of eco-tourism, defined as responsible travel to natural areas, which conserves the environment and improves the welfare of the local inhabitants.
