Activities around Wide Horizons
There are several hiking trails around the farm itself, from the easy going meander along the stream that is the sculpture trail, very popular with the kids, to serious mountain hiking for stunning views. Kids are also encouraged to assist with the daily feeding of the rabbits, ducks, chickens and turkeys.
There are several well stocked dams on the farm, tilapia and bass, which are also scenic for sundowners with rustic shack for shelter.
We are a declared conservation area, and have a demarcated wildlife area stocked with gnus, impala, zebra, nyala and bushbuck. The farm also has wonderful indigenous forest areas which are ideal for bird spotting and we have a comprehensive birdlist available.
We are surrounded by mountain roads and tracks, great to explore with your 4 x 4 vehicle or mountain bike. They are safe, scenic and can be challenging.
The area is also excellent for birdwatching, and the elusive Narina Trogon has been spotted here.
There is an aquatic rock pool and contemplation chapels in the gardens surrounding the main lodge.
Additional pre-booked activities include a one to one horse trek to really experience what the local area has to offer, conservation/ecology hike with an ex-Kruger ranger with over 30 years experience of living and working in the 'bush', night walk to the local dam with our in-house guide, and an advanced trail run (15kms) with experienced guide.
Nearby are 18 hole golf courses, adventure centres - whitewater rafting, caving, quadbiking, horse riding and excellent game reserves, plus some renowned craft centres which alone justify a visit to this tiny, talented Kingdom!
You can also just relax, enjoy the view, and relish the peace and quiet of this special, soul refreshing retreat.
