day trips

Join us on a guided nature drive through the Elandsberg Nature Reserve, or join resident chef Louise Gillett for an inspired journey of locally inspired dishes for brunch, lunch or dinner. Or here’s an idea … do both!

Guests are welcome (pre-booking essential) to come and enjoy the morning with us visiting the Buffalo Breeding Project and the Quagga Breeding Programme, and tracking the rare geometric tortoise in our wonderful 10 000 acre private nature reserve, escorted by our qualified guides in an open game-viewing vehicle. Guests can see antelope species unique to the Cape, such as bontebok and Cape mountain zebra, as well as many others such as eland, springbuck and black wildebeest, and numerous indigenous plants, birds and animals. In addition to nature drives, the kitchen of Bartholomeus Klip is renowned for serving world-class cuisine and is open to serve a variety of meals when visiting the farm.

Rates are per person and all packages are subject to availability | Booking is required two days in advance.

Guided Nature Drive
ZAR 355

Guided Nature Drive

Enjoy a nature drive through the 10 000 acre nature reserve. The drive sets off through the gate and across the river into the reserve, entering a completely different world from the farmlands and gardens of Bartholomeus Klip. You might head towards the mountains towering up in front of you, or along the road to the grassy plains area where herds of black wildebeest and springbok tend to congregate. Fynbos surrounds you with its rich and varied plant life full of interest, where at any moment you might spot a zebra from the quagga project, a rare plant or perhaps even a strikingly patterned geometric tortoise. In the springtime there will be thousands of wild flowers and streams of running water everywhere, and in summer the heat and dryness will tell you that you are unmistakably in Africa.


INCLUDES 2 hour drive into the Private Nature Reserve with qualified guide / Activities booklet, bottle of water / Coffee or tea on arrival. From 10:00am only for day visitors.
