OVERVIEW

Ideal for some leisurely farm jeep track exploration and game seeing.

On your bike

The main 10km route does include some adventurous riding, because shortly after the windmill turn off, riders must jump a little fence, and then follow animal tracks to the river, which they will follow for a few hundred meters to a rocky river crossing, from where they follow animal tracks again to join up to a lovely smooth jeep track, that leads to a old wind mill. After which you back-track a short distance, before heading back to the main house.

There are 3 Long Distance options for the Endurance Mountain Biker. These routes are very safe, along super quiet karoo district roads, and will take you along some of the most breathtaking archaeological scenery in South Africa.
