Pack your paints and lose yourself in the beauty of the Karoo landscapes. Bring along your Photography equipment…the Karoo light will enthrall you. Wonderful opportunities to photograph vegetation, sunrises, sunsets, macrophotography, and of course the animals you come across.
Board games, Scrabble, Chess, Backgammon, card games, puzzles offer plenty of ‘old fashioned’ family time together. We are also able to host Duplicate Bridge groups / tournaments of 8 individuals.
Often our guests’ favourite experience on the farm. Karoo delicacies beautifully packed, mostly produced on the farm, homemade ginger beer; gin and tonic, wine or a cold beer. Sitting out in the veld, taking in the vast expanse of vegetation fill’s one’s soul. Food also taste much better when eaten outside than inside! Charged at R450 per picnic basket which can feed 2-4 people (family with children U11 years).
Guided 40 minute amble up to Kudu Rock, with a chance to spot our rare Arabian Oryx; might even be lucky to see Kudu coming to the waterhole in the evening. Spectacular view across the veld. Great Sundowners spot (no charge).
Extensive hiking opportunities on the 15 000 hectare farm. Easy walking...more strenuous hikes...very hectic hikes into Tronkkloof Gorge which will require a degree of fitness. Backup support always available.
Relaxing hours of “Stoepsit”. An important part of a luxurious farm stay are the hours spent on the farmstead Stoep, watching sunrise with a coffee in hand, taking in the vast expanse, the quietness, farm sounds, enjoying a glass of wine, or watching the evening skies. Expose yourself to this magical pastime.
Immerse yourself in reading; we have a collectors' library of books on the Boer War, as well as many interesting books on the Karoo. Discover these topics while relaxing on the "stoep"...
The Milky Way can be seen in the Karoo like few other places in South Africa, possibly on earth. Use an App to identify stars as they appear.
