Game and scenic drives

Enjoy the vast vistas of the Namibian landscape as you take guided drives on the farm. Game drives are conducted in open vehicles and various species such as eland, oryx, kudu, springbuck, hartebeest, steenbuck, zebra and giraffes can be seen. You may even be lucky and spot an aardvark. In the mountains next to the river, we have caracal and leopard. They are however very shy and it is extremely rare to see one. There are always plenty of monkeys and baboons around.

Bird watching

Bird watchers will have the opportunity to see various interesting bird species, like the Kori Bustard (“Gompou”), Korhaan, Namibian lovebird, Kelkiewyn (Namaqua sand grouse) and various raptor species. We have Fish eagles, Verreaux's eagles (Witkruisarende) and we even spotted a Martial eagle in a Camel Thorn tree recently. Our personal favourite bird might just be the Kelkiewyn. When it calls, whilst in flight, it sounds like someone saying “kelkie wyn, kelkie wyn” (English pronunciation: “Calkey vain.”) Translated this means “glass of wine”. Enjoying a glass of wine next to the river, enjoying a setting sun, sure is a great way of ending a day.

Walking trails

To truly experience the veld, you have to be in it. Walking takes you closer to nature than any other way of transport. Walk a game path, explore a river bed or climb Swartberg, our local highest point. The usual caveats apply. Be careful of where you put your feet. Although not common, we do have a large variety of snakes, including puff adders. Leave them be and they will not bother you. Always carry plenty of water.

Fishing & Picnicking by the river

The Graswater group of farms stretch over a large area. The river farms are about 25km from the farmhouse, so it is a bit of a drive to get there. It is best to leave early in the morning. There is always something to stop for and look at, so the trip typically takes about an hour or longer.
Ask around, as there are beautiful places to have a picnic next to the river, but you need to know where to look for them. Make sure to wear shoes, as there are plenty of duwweltjie thorns about.
There are various fish species in the Orange, with barbell and yellowfish being the most caught.
On the banks of the river you will find lucerne fields. Lucerne is an important cash crop and used for animal feed. At night the kudus try to sneak into the fields. One night we counted 36 kudus in one field. Quite a sight.

What to wear

The most important thing to remember about Namibia, is that it is probably going to be hotter than you expected. For 9 out 12 months, the day time temperature will be in the high-20’s and higher. During the winter months it can get really cold, even though the days will be nice and moderate. From May through August it can be freezing at dawn and dusk with very cold nights, we therefore recommend that you dress in layers. That way you won’t be too hot or cold.
A word of caution is in order. December to February is very hot, with daytime temperatures averaging around 40 degrees Celsius. It is a dry heat, so it is not unbearable, but it is still very, very hot. The sun is unforgiving and activities are best scheduled for early morning and late afternoons.
