OVERVIEW

Langdam-in-Koo is situated on a fruit farm in the Koo valley. Our accomodation overlooks the Langeberg mountain range with spectacular views and a natural farm-style atmosphere. Pear Tree cottage is situated close to the original farmhouse built in 1912. Apricot and Almond Suites are private romantic suites in the original farmhouse. Camping is also available in a private pine forest. 

On your bike

 Two formal hiking/mountain biking trails exist, namely:

The Eagle Trail - 2.3km (circular) with starting elevation of 967m, peak elevation of 1057m, ending elevation 967m.

The Tortoise Trail - 2.8km (one way) with a starting elevation of 984m and ending elevation of 1436m.

Otherwise, just roam the trails of the farm at your leisure from flat and sandy to rocky and challenging - entirely up to you.

Off the bike

Relax on the farm at the lapa, paddle on the dam, go for a relaxing walk through the orchards. Or be adventurous and take a hike up the Langeberg mountains. Two large dams offer large mouth bass of excellent quality. Fishing rods are available for hire. Catch and release only.
