About Brooklands Reserve
Brooklands Reserve is a 600HA privately owned family run game farm in the MALERIA FREE, Eastern Cape area of South Africa. Booked for your exclusive use, you will experience the African bushveld and witness our wildlife roam in a diverse variety of habitats, from grasslands, river frontage, mountain cliffs, valleys and dense forests.
If you have a love for the great outdoors - Brooklands is a must. Young, old, families, group of friends, team building groups or couples looking to relax.
There is an array of wild game on the farm such as Giraffe, Zebra, Nyala, Waterbuck, Kudu, Mountain Reedbuck, Blesbuck, Rooihaartebees, Impala, Duiker, Bushbuck & Warthog to name a few.
The birdlife on Brooklands is highly sought after with birding enthusiasts coming to see the Narina Trojan, European Honey Buzzard, Scaky-throated Honeyguide, Black Cuckooshrike, Green Pigeon, Crowned Hornbill, Crown Eagle and Fish Eagle to name a few. Recently we witnessed a Crown Eagle making a baby Impala kill - although sad, it was an insight into nature afforded by few.
Whilst the cottage is rustic, the rooms are comfortable made up of three bedrooms and three bathrooms.
The kitchen is well equipped to ensure your stay is as peaceful & relaxing as possible.
There is a small patio with a comfortable seating area, dining table and kettle or wood braais. One delivery of braai wood will be supplied per booking. Additional braai wood can be ordered at additional cost.
Mountain biking, trail running, nature hikes, game viewing, river fishing (tag and release), canoeing, bird watching, swimming in the reservoir pool or the river, tennis, reading your book under a tree, having wild fun or meditating! There is something for everybody to enjoy. All equipment, I.e. bikes, fishing rods etc to be supplied by yourselves.
Every city dweller needs to fill their ‘well-being tank’ with the outdoors. Brooklands is truly a special place. You will be amazed at what nature has to offer - whether it’s a weekend, a week or a month - you will smile, laugh and feel grateful for what South Africa has to offer. Including our famous Rooster-brood which can be arranged by prior request.
* Rooster-brood is a traditional South African bread roll baked on an open fire and are truly delicious as an accompaniment to any meal - or as per our sons' favourite way of making a small hole in the top and drenching it with honey!
It is our greatest wish that every visitor leaves Brooklands with a full, happy and peaceful heart.
