A private nature reserve of over 3 500 hectares, Moolmanshoek was developed from a conservation area into a natural heritage site.

It is situated in the district of Ficksburg in the Eastern Free State at the foot of the Witteberge.

Enjoy the rich wild- and bird life or experience the hiking trails on and around the farm.

Fishing in the clear spring water or experiencing breathtaking views from horseback are but few of the activities available on the farm.

For the adventure lovers there is the Visierskerf 4 x 4 Eco-Route and a variety of hiking trails.

Relax in the thatched-roofed restaurant, with its excellent cuisine and bar facilities ending off your day in one of the luxury modern sandstone suites for a peaceful night`s sleep.

Steeped in rich history dating from before the Great Trek, the farm is skillfully managed by its friendly staff.

Moolmanshoek Private Game Reserve charges a Resort Entry Fee of R75 per person.
R800.00 pps

We were very much impressed by everything. The rooms were special as were the scenery, game drives, very tame game, friendly service and good food. The whole farm oozes peace and tranquility.
