The famous Cango Caves is also just a short drive away. We run a game breeding operation and can organising sightings for the guests, weather permitting.We are situated on the original farm De Kombuys, where the Cango Caves were discovered. This is an historical area and perfect for a peace and quiet away from city life yet close enough to the City.
Safari: We run a game breeding operation on the farm and we can organise sightings of the animals provided it is weather permitting and outside breeding periods. We do however not offer game drives at this stage.

Romantic: We are completely off the beaten track offering privacy in the beautiful mountains. Two original fireplaces creat a cosy, romantic setting.
