There is more than 30km’s of trails which can be explored either on  hiking or by mountain bike. These will take you to any one of the estates six dams, or up to the “ Roof Of Africa” a savannah – like plateau 300 meters above the level of the homestead. Here you can find rare Oribi, and mountain Reedbuck as well as common Reedbuck and Blesbuck. The silver backed jackal, porcupine and various smaller predators can also occasionally be spotted.
