Apart from the various activities such as bird watching, hiking and mountain bike trails, motorcycle and 4ื4 routes and team building activities, the farm also has some zebras and very rare flora. Very recently a very rare species of aloe plants (Haworthias marxii), was re-discovered and named after Mr Gerhard Marx.
There are currently only two localities known where this species is found, the first being Drielingskloof, where about 30 plants can be found in the cracks of a small hill and the second population being a small family of nine plants found on Wagendrift Farm. These plants are of the most difficult Haworthias to recognise as one might easily walk right over it without noticing it. They grow very deep and are hidden underneath dead leaves and small Rhinobush twigs as well as in between rock cracks.
Please note that no smoking is allowed on any hiking trails due to fire hazard.
