Karoo Nature Walks

The wonderful scenery begs to be explored. Guests are welcome to walk or hike through the farm and the veld or to climb our mountains and enjoy the vistas and the interesting rock formations. The walk to the fresh mountain spring is a particular favourite.

Some of our mountains are also suitable for abseiling.

A nature-lover's paradise, the farm has a great variety of aloes, Cycads, Elephant's Foot, Proteas and the rare Willowmore Cedar not to mention the miniature "Gansie". (The farm is participating in the SKEP program - Succulent Karoo Environmental Plan).

There is an interesting place where rocks have been worn smooth by elephants rubbing against them over the course of centuries.

Bird life abounds on the farm. Several hundred species were identified by a University of Port Elizabeth study-group.

Bushman artifacts have also been found on the farm.

At night, the clear Karoo sky offers spectacular star gazing.

The Groot River presents opportunities for fresh water angling as well as for swimming and rowing (subject to rainfall!).
