Biking and Hiking

The Farm has had the CAPE EPIC cycle tour through it in 2014 and 2015…

Simply walk out the front door and make your choice. The farm is 983 hectares (2400 acres) and one can go for either short walks (around the dam or orchids) or longer trails at the back of the farm and up the mountain range. Cyclists are not permitted to ride around the orchids (they are riddled with thorns in any case). See the boundaries of the farm under the “About Us” page. There is a diagram of trails that can be used when checking into the farm.
