We cater for the CASUAL HIKER...and the enthusiast with energy to burn! The 7.5km circular KUDU ROUTE hugs the foot of the mountain and gives you a good workout and appreciation for our slice of the famous Bushveld.

 

For the more energetic you can hike our mountainous 6-11km BLACK EAGLE ROUTE and enjoy the panoramic views towards Botswana and the Waterberg. Expect sightings of kudu, mountain rheebuck, zebra, klipspringer, resident black eagles, and much more. 

Remember your water bottle, suntan lotion, snacks, camera/cell, binoculars, Bird Guide (if that's your thing!)...or leave it all behind and do some serious TRAIL RUNNING!

We offer half-day "brown river rafting" on the picturesque Crocodile River. Enjoy a vigorous work-out, or drift down the sluggish current and surprise a wide variety of bird-, fish- and wildlife enroute! Ask our farm manager for a drop-off / collect date/time. We got two kayaks that fit 4 big or 6 small enthusiasts!

Remember water, snacks, suntan lotions, a hat, old clothes and be very careful with cellphones and camera's...its calm rafting BUT a swim or two is to be expected! Bring your own kayaks for bigger groups.
NOTE: There are very occasional sightings of crocodiles and even hippos and this activity is completely on your own risk.

R600/trip (Max 4 guests, unless own kayaks)
