Go! Camp & Drive - - Weekend | Western Cape -

What are the trails like? Loop 1 is mostly a good twin-track up to a look­out point and back, but with some steep climbs along the way. Loop 2 is a bit more dif­fi­cult with tech­ni­cal rocky ob­sta­cles. Do I need a 4x4? Only 4x4s with low range gears are suit­able for the trails, but you can drive Loop 1 with high­way-ter­rain tyres and run­ning boards. Where can we stay? There’s a long list of ac­com­mo­da­tion op­tions, rang­ing from a green camp­site suit­able for caravans to bush camps, ba­sic self-cater­ing units, per­ma­nent caravans and spa­cious chalets. What else can we do? Moun­tain bik­ing, fish­ing, bird watching and hik­ing. The farm is also pop­u­lar among stargaz­ers. Costs:
