Activities

Guided Mountain Biking Tours:
The Karkloof is excellent MTB country and host to the biggest mountain-biking event in South Africa, the Karkloof Classic Race. We’d gladly book a guided tour for you with Hylton Turvey, the race designer. Alternatively, explore the area on your own through a series of self-guided trails in the private Karkloof Nature Reserve.

Karkloof Canopy Tour:
As this kicks off within our reserve, we’ve negotiated a 15% discount for guests of Rockwood. A must-do on your holiday itinerary!

Hiking:
Bring good hiking gear and you’ll be able to explore the reserve fully as you work your way between mistbelt forest and grassland, up and down steep inclines and over slippery rocks. Just chill out and take a leisurely stroll along some romantic farm roads…You choose.

Birding:
The area has several rare and endemic species of birds and is listed in the Roberts CD. Birding on the forest fringes and streams can offer some excellent rewards to birders. Some of the more elusive species found are the Cape Parrot, Narina Trogon, Crested Guinea Fowl (sub-species) and the Crowned Eagle.

Fishing:
There are several weirs and dams within and adjacent to the reserve which are well stocked with rainbow and brown trout. Bring your own rods.

Children’s Play Area:
Watch your kids be kids on the trampoline or jungle gym.
