Activities

The lodge has a number activities to enjoy and most enticing of course is the viewing of free roaming game such as Kudu, Impala, Nyala, Giraffe, Warthogs and many smaller antelope. You can also tour the reserve on foot along nature trails; you’ll be perfectly safe as there are no dangerous predators on site. The area lends itself to great opportunities for birdwatching and wildlife photography. You can take a drink to the hide and watch the wildlife coming down to the water hole after a hot day or in the crisp morning air before setting off for the day.

Bring your mountain bike along to enjoy the fairly steep and rugged trails around the farm. If you dont have a bike or left it at home ask to use one of ours as we are keen for you to explore and appreciate the natural beauty of this area.

The warm days you can relax in the sun around the swimming pool, swim or just enjoy the peace and quiet with a cup of tea, coffee or hand crafted beer or mead.

Other activities nearby include half day safari at Pumba, elephants at Kwantu, boat trip at Sibuya, walking tours of historic Grahamstown or a day trip to the beach which is only 38km away.

The Region

This region forms part of the popular Frontier Country route – so named because it was literally the 19th century frontier between the British Cape Colony and the Xhosa territories. It was the scene of first contact, cultural clashes, confusion and, inevitably, conflict. Much of what happened here set the tone for South Africa’s turbulent multi-cultural history.

Fast gaining in popularity, our small part of the world offers visitors easy access to the unspoilt beaches of the Sunshine Coast and premier game reserves in a malaria -and bilharzia-free environment. View the Big 5, enjoy our spectacularly rugged scenery, immerse yourself in our rich history and enjoy our warm hospitality!
