ACTIVITIES

SANDBOARDING:

 Have you ever picutred yourself standing on the top of a dune and see yourself sliding down on a sand board.  Feel the wind blow through your hair, while there is nothing but serine beauty surrounding you.  We will show you the ropes at the lodge and you can go at your own pace with the sand board.

GUIDED BIRD, FYNBOS AND WETLAND WALK:

Take a walk in our 235 hectare large property which is home to over 170 different bird species, with a variety of different environments, such as a 3,5 km private beachfront, 2 vast stretches of dunes, wetlands, woodlands, river deltas and a variety of fynbos.  There is a dedicated trail for this walk.  The guide will take you along the trail and show you all that is to be seen and a whole lot more (minimum of 2 persons)

HORES RIDING: 

Explore the Coastal Reserve and private beach on one of our free roaming horses.  Even beginners can enjoy this bucket list experience as an experienced guide will join you on your ride through the dunes and "fynbos". The more experienced rider can have a breathtaking gallop along side the waves of the Indian Ocean.

DUNE SAFARI:

Relax and enjoy a drive through our wetlands, lagoons, woodlands and fynbos on our open safari eco friendly vehicle.  We stop at the highest point of our property to enjoy the unimpeded view of Slangbaai, the Indian Ocean including the 18 century Cape St Francis lighthouse - a good 15km away while enjoying birding and whale watching.  This activity includes a snack stop on the beach.

MOUNTAIN BIKING:

A real challenge!  Explore 235 ha of nature on a mountain bike as the trails go over dunes, through the river and on the beach.  A good health condition is needed!  An option is the 22km ride on dirt road to St Francis, or discover the roads to the west.

FISHING:

Fishing can be done from the beach front or at the rocks within walking distance from the lodge.  Bring your own fishing equipment and catch your own Cape Salmon.

DEEP SEA FISHING:

For the more adventurous ones, we can arrange a deep sea fishing experience from Port St Francis on the Indian Ocean.  Yellow fin tuna and marlin are often caught in the winter months while red roman and geelbek are the summer catches of the day.

HIKING:

Four different well marked hiking trails have been set out on the Coastal Reserve.  They are marked with different colours and vary from 3km to 7.5km.  Breathe in the fresh air of the "fynbos" and listen to th sounds of nature and extensive birdlife.

RIVER KAYAK:

Explore our property by kayak.  Meander down the river and onto the beach.  See the sights of our horses, buck and a variety of bird life, such as the Kingfisher and the Adrican Fish Eagle.  The option is available to anchor the kayak and enjoy a picnic at one of our private decks.

SWIMMING:

Try to keep your head above the water in the waves of the Indian Ocean, but be careful of the strong current, so don't go to far!  After a refreshing splash in the sea, enjoy a real swim in our freshwater swimming pool and catch a bit of sun for a nice tan.

PICNIC:

To look after your appetite, we recommend a picnic on one of our viewing decks.  Our friendly staff will gladly prepare a delicious picnic basket for you.  Just let us know when and where, one of our experienced guides will bring the basket to you on horseback!.

GEO - CACHING:

Explore our property with our clues to reach the "gold mine".  If you are keen your first clue is .....where the river and the dune meets, you will be looking for a treasure chest.  The point of Geo-caching is to replace an item of equal value into the boxes.   You may end up waling away with a South African treasure.  Within the chest you will receive your next clue.  Have Fun!!

TOWNSHIP TOUR:

Take a guided tour through Umzamuwethu.  Visit the creche, where you'll be able to meet all the township's little ones.  Experience what the local schooling system is all about.  Enjoy a tantalizing cup of tea served by the locals and join the children for lunch.  Stroll in the streets and meet the locals.  (Minimum of 2 persons)
