Swimming & Fynbos

Eight minutes from the cottages – an easy walk – is the most beautiful, secluded, crystal-clear mountain rock pool.
It is a wonderful way to cool off in the summer especially after a walk in the mountains.  This is a magical place where you all you can do is relax and enjoy the untouched nature surrounding you.

Hiking in our Nature Reserve

With 400ht of Private Nature Reserve, there is a lot of mountain and a lot of open space!

The hiking trails through the virgin fynbos vary in length, from a short walk, a half day hike or a 8hr scramble to the top of Queen Victoria Peak!

With incredible views in all directions, the trails pass through very diverse scenery. Our farm lies between two bioms – the Western Cape Fynbos and the Succulent Karoo which in itself adds to the abundance of biodiversity.

Bird watching is popular and so far 97 species have been ticked off on the farm and mountain.  Black Eagles nest in the mountains nearby.  Fish eagles, Buzzards, Falcons and many other raptors can be spotted. You’ll hear the Nightjars every night, probably the Barn Owls and Spotted Eagle Owls too. Sunbirds and Weaver birds will dart around in front of the cottages.
