Wildlife

On the farm you’ll find Blesbok, Red Hartebeest, Duiker (one hand reared that likes bananas), Oribi, Zebra, Black Wildebeeste and Reedbuck. Occasionally one can see a porcupine and Jackal especially at night.

For the bird enthusiast we have visiting Fish Eagles & Vultures, resident Jackal Buzzard, Owls, Waterfowl and, if you're lucky enough, you might spot a Secretary Bird.

CAUTION! Wild animals are dangerous and cannot be approached, we ask that you don't interfere with the wildlife. The animals can of course be viewed from close up while at the dam. The zebras may seem tame as they are around the cottages all the time but don't be fooled, please keep your distance.

Kindly note: Absolutely no hunting allowed.

Fishing

Two well stocked trout dams, both rainbow & brown trout. Dams feature annualy in Kamberg Fly fishing Festival.

Rod fee per day, catch and release only (R100 per day per person). Ethical fly fishing only, float tubes permissable.

With time we’re told there’ll be small mouth bass and trout available in the Springrove Dam.

Hiking and Walks

The Kamberg Nature Reserve is 30 mins from the farm, there’s a great hike to some of the best bushman paintings. They have guided walks two or three times per day and a small restaurant with scones, muffins and toasted sandwiches. They also have a small theatre where they show a documentary on the Bushman & settlers in the this area, with more information on the bushman paintings. It’s a good day’s outing for our longer stay visitors looking for a day trip.

You are welcome to walk anywhere on the farm, we normally encourage visitors to see the Inchbraekie Waterfall, the only waterfall on the Mooi River which will be inundated by the new Springrove Dam.

Water sports

Small boat which can be taken on our dam.

Swimming in summer.

In the near future we believe you'll be able to access the Springrove Dam from the farm if you have your own paddle ski or other non-motorised boating equipment.

Mountain Bike riding

On the property (8km of farm road) and surrounds.

4x4 Trails

We have approximately 8km of dirt roads and encourage you to use them with 4x4 vehicles only.
