Things to do

This enchanting country experience caters for every whim, whether you seek peace and serenity or feel like challenging your adventurous spirit. Our trout dams lie waiting for the avid fly-fisher, willing to rise with the sun – coffee flask in hand. If this doesn’t tickle your fancy, sleep in and awake to the sounds of abundant bird life, then bask in the sun with a captivating read.

The farm boasts luscious trees, streams running through the trout dams and bold mountains, all of which contribute to the unique variety of fauna and flora to be found in the area, including endangered species such as the Crane family, Oribi, Aardwolf and Arum Lilies. Get to the top of the koppies any way you like, just as long as you take the time to soak in the panoramic grandeur of your surroundings and enjoy a sundowner with the mountains fading into the horizon.



Whether you are a morning person who likes big breakfasts or prefer to sleep in, looking to spoil that special someone or just want a quick snack while you’re out and about – we’ve got you covered!
In our picnic range, we’ve mixed Luxury with Affordability – enabling you to get the full country experience without hurting your pocket!


Fly Fishing

Our fully-stocked dams ensure a great fishing experience for all.
Rods can be hired at R100.00 per day and includes 10 flies.
To avoid disappointment, please book your rod in advance. 

PLEASE NOTE THAT DUE TO LOW RAINFALL THE PREVIOUS SUMMER, OUR DAM’S WATER LEVELS ARE LOW. We do still have some trout stocked, but can not restock until the water levels have normalized. We have been blessed with 5mm of rainfall, thus we are hopeful that the rainfall will return to normal this summer.

R100 deposit is required for each rod and R10.00 will be charged for each fly lost.


Wattle Walk

Get out the sunscreen, put on some walking shoes and take some time to appreciate the captivating beauty of your surroundings on our nature walk. 


Die Koekepan Boma

Throw some meat on the braai and relax around the fire pit with a couple of friends at Die Koekepan boma.  The boma has its own private bathrooms and a kitchen equipped with microwave, gas stove, fridge, cutlery & crockery and portable Bluetooth speaker.  The boma hire includes wood and charcoal, and self-catering as well as catered options, are available.  Please contact us for a quote.
