Farm Safari and Wine Tour

For an intimate, personal, non-commercial experience, we take you away from the hustle and bustle of the city and take you to a private nature reserve where you will experience impeccable farm style hospitality, peaceful country atmosphere, delicious food and see and learn about the many different animals on the reserve.

You will enjoy a delicious farm fresh hot and cold brunch in a beautifully restored Victorian homestead. This will be followed by a wonderful game drive learning about and spotting the various antelope species such as Springbok, Cape Mountain Zebra, Wildebeest, the Quagga and Bontebok among others. You will also learn about the buffalo breeding programme as well as the Quagga breeding project.

One of the highlights of the game drive for me, is visiting the geometric tortoise nursery. The babies are so vulnerable that an army of ants could carry them away. Learn what the farm does to protect them.

After we enjoy our wonderful farm safari we head for the beautiful wine valley of Wellington and discover this beautiful hidden gem. You will enjoy an afternoon of wine tasting and a bite to eat if you are hungry. This tour will also be great as a family tour.
