Nature & Game Drives

 

MORNING NATURE & GAME VIEWING DRIVE

Join us for the morning to explore the far reaches of our reserve. The program departs at 09h00 daily. A leisurely drive enjoying the fresh outdoors and looking out for the various antelope species that are found on the reserve. The drive takes you along the Red House Trail where many animals gather, and we stop briefly at The Red House to see the ruins of the first settlers to the valley. Then we head into the mountains to see some spectacular examples of Cape Folding Mountains, stopping at a dam teeming with wildlife, for refreshments and light snacks. From the view point, you can spot many species of waterfowl and maybe hear the Fish Eagle cry.

Selfe drives

 

SELF DRIVES

Guests with appropriate vehicles are welcome to explore the reserve in their own vehicle. (high clearance vehicles, 4X4’s or LUV’s)

We have some 4×4 routes (approximately 3-4 grade) but these still need to be developed.

No Night Time Driving is allowed on the reserve. Drivers are required to observe a self-drive protocol which will be provided when you check in.  There is a small road-maintenance levy of R100 per vehicle for self-drives.

Some areas of the reserve are restricted to minimize human impact.

Hiking and Nature Walks

 

We have several different hiking trails which suit all level of fitness from short walks to day trails.  The trails are demarcated and because we do not have “The Big Five” on our reserve, guests can safely hike without the concern of running into dangerous animals. Guided hikes at small nominal extra charge can be arranged at Reception.
