Drakensberg area and have excellent trout streams. We have
two dams on a farm and a total of 30 km of river.
Hunting: We offer Partridge as well as Rhebuck hunting in a land that
embraces a wealth of beautiful fauna and flora. There is a
large area of land available for hunting, so you won’t be

unforgettable experience and an enjoyable hunt.

often covered in snow during June and July to the middle of
August. We also offer skiing at a nearby ski resort.
