De Pakhuys Guest Farm Activities:
The farm offers a beautiful scenic drive to the top section accessible only with a 4x4 vehicle. The top section of the farm consists of 60 ha of rooibos tea lands and 260 ha of unspoilt fynbos gorges and wild flowers during season.
Hundred years old Wild Olive trees, or commonly know as olienhout trees, can be found wedged between the rocks. An old hollow rock cave can be used for a picnic or for those that really wants to "rough it", as an overnight camping spot.
Guests are welcome to stroll around the farm but two "formal" hiking trails may be followed:
Die Plaat Hiking Trail (2 hours)
This route takes you down the 4x4 track and up to Die Plaat area of the farm. The walk takes approximately two hours but can be varied for those who feel like a shorter walk. During the flower season the walk takes you through endless veldflower fields.
The walk offers beautiful views of the surrounding mountain range and the valley below. Includes San Rock Paintings.
The Waterfall Trail (1:30 minutes)
This trail takes you for an easy walk along the banks of the Brandewyn (Brandy!) River down to where the river plummets 500m into the Karoo basin, resulting in lovely waterfalls, rapids and astounding rock formations.
For the fortunate bird watcher you might spot the evasive "Witkruis Arend" raptor nesting high against the cliffs. Plunge into rock pool!!!
Sevilla Rock Art Trail (4km on route to Wuperthal).
Wupperthal is situated about 49km from the farm in the remote Tra-Tra valley on the edge of the Cederberg Wilderness Area.
