Things to Do

Whether you are here to relax, just chill, or keep the kids busy, we cater for both.

  • Water sports include superior fishing, bass, carp, kurper, catfish... all waiting to test your fishing skills.  We prefer the catch and release policy, unless you want to buy the fish which you have caught, in which case we will clean and package the fish for you.

  • Please enquire at reception for prices.  We have several canoes which you can use to fish off, or simply paddle with a rod and reel in your hand, and watch the setting sun...  Beautiful!
    Bring your own tackle and bait.

  • Game drives; please arrange and book at reception.  The drive lasts about 2 hours.
    See if you can spot the following; Kudu, Nyala, Blue Wildebeest, Giraffe, Waterbuck, Blesbok, Klipspringer, Duiker, Gemsbok, Eland, Zebra, Ostrich, Impala, Red Hartebeest... and many different bird species and typical bushveld flora.  A most enjoyable experience.

  • Nyala walking trail; get your hiking boots on and enjoy a lovely walk through the game farm.  All the above animals are to be seen, the experience is so much better on foot.  Have a water bottle handy, and take a hat/cap and sun screen lotion, it can get really hot out there.  The terrain is fairly steep, but not difficult to walk.

  • Outdoor sports include; Putt-Putt, Volley Ball, Outdoor Chess, Walks in the Resort where you can spot our resident herds of Springbuck, Blesbuck and Impala.  See if you can spot the Black Impala.  Many bird species that visit at different times of the year can be seen, including Fish Eagles and Egyptian Geese.

  • Feed the fish in the dam, they will be thankful.  Fish food can be bought from the shop.

  • Braai beside the hot and cold swimming pools, a lovely way to prepare lunch for the family.
