ACTIVITIES IN THE AREA

The following are some of the activities which guests here have enjoyed in the past. Some activities are here on the farm, some are nearby. Some activities are included in the self catered rate, some are extra. Prices on request.

Horse Riding
We can arrange a wide variety of riding activities for our guests at Horizon (world famous horse riding establishment see www.ridinginafrica.com), which is situated on the Triple B Ranch. These include outrides into the bush, riding with game (including giraffe, if you're lucky), cattle mustering, Polocross (a simpler and, some say, more enjoyable form of polo), Western games (all sorts of semi-competitive fun on horseback). Horizon cater for all types of riders, novices to experts, just 7mins from Boschdraai.

Ant's Nest Game Drive
Ant's Nest was recently voted as one of the top 101 destinations worldwide by Tattler magazine and Abercrombie and Kent. That I strongly agree with this has nothing to do with the fact that Ant is my brother-in-law, well not much. Actually, we find that time and again our guests rate Ant's nest as their top game viewing experience. Even though it doesn't have lion and elephant, its stunning and varied scenery, plentiful game and knowledgeable and friendly guides make it a great outing. Cost dependent on numbers. 40 mins drive from Boschdraai.

Entabeni Big 5 Game Reserve
Entabeni Safari Conservancy, "The Place of the Mountain", is situated in a 22 000 ha malaria-free reserve and boasts five ecosystems. Experience scenic helicopter flights, stargazing in the observatory, sunset lake cruises and a variety of game viewing activities. Situated 75km from Windsong.

The Goat Farm
This tiny farm has won top awards in French cheese competitions. Guests visiting are able to watch the milking, pet adult and baby goats, and all get to sample (and purchase is you want) various delicious goat cheeses. The farm has relocated to the roadside, between Modimolle and Vaalwater. It is approximately 40 min drive away. Close on Tuesdays.
