Game Drives

SPECIALITIES seen on Game Drives are: Aardwolf & Springhare (on most Night drives), sometimes Aardvark, Caracal & Genet (on Sunset & Night Drives/ Night Walks).

On our 3 440 hectare property near Cradock 20 antelope species, 29 small mammal and reptile species and over 200 bird species are present (checklists available). During our summer months (October to March) several migrant bird species are found here including the European Bee Eater and the White Stork.

The terrain is covered in Acacia trees, Karoo bush (which gives our Lamb its unique taste), various types of Aloes, and grasses such as tall Red grass ( Themeda ), Bushman grass, Finger grass and Aristida.
