For the avid fly fisherman try you hand at catching wild rainbow or brown trout on the 3,5km of pristine river frontage.
Test the river strength and rapids with our comfortable tubes on a mild 1½ hr journey – fun for all ages, or the more adventurous challenge of 4hrs for the less faint-hearted. Book an hour’s Archery lesson in Robin Hood’s little forest and get the adrenalin rush of hitting a bulls eye!
Recharge and explore the beautiful mountain scenery on horseback, go on a guided Bushman’s rock art hike, hike into the world heritage site, birding, fauna and flora tours or explore the legendary Sani’s Pass - best 4x4 experience in South Africa and have a Maluti beer at the highest pub in Africa!
