A great place for photographers.

Photographers will find many photo opportunities during the drive. Besides capturing wildlife, the surrounding mountains and veld makes the perfect setting for landscape photos. For those who want to learn more about photography, a mentor from Clarens Pro Photographer can accompany the group. Booking is essential.

The game farm is also part of the Andes Wedding Venue – allowing photographers to get creative while shooting the bridal pair’s wild side on their most memorable day.

Cycle through wildlife on our Mountain Bike Trail.

For the adventurous at heart we have a 13km MTB route from the top of a mountain back to Clarens. This fast paced route is ideal for cyclists who enjoy cycling through nature.

Cyclists are picked up at the Square on Wednesdays, Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays at 06:00 and dropped off on the top of the mountain on the game farm. From there they can pedal back to town.

A minimum of 6 bicycles are allowed per booking, and bookings are essential.

Rich in cultural history.

The farm has many caves that served as hiding places for women and children during the Anglo Boer War. You will be given an opportunity to visit these caves during the game drive.

The names of the people who hid here are carved in the walls of the caves.

Geological tours by Dr Groenewald.

Dinosaur enthusiasts can learn more about the pre-historic life that existed in the area by attending a Dino Walk with Dr Groenewald. He has proven himself as an expert in the field over the years, and inquisitive minds can learn a lot about dinosaurs and how they lived by spending as little as an hour with him.

Bookings are essential.
