Take time to search for the elusive Otter along the banks of the river, or spot any of the Grassland predators like Caracal, Black backed jackal or the secretive Brown Hyena. More than 200 birds have been recorded on this farm with sightings of Fluff tail, Fish eagles, and the long wing Nightjar. Blue Crane, Mahem and Wattle Crane are annual visitors and have bred successfully on Elandskloof. If you are more into doing it in style, let us take you on a game drive or night drive (weather permitting).

Make use of the crystal clear air, the colourful hues, and the dramatic backdrop of the mountains to capture that once in a lifetime picture. Explore a working farm and learn about stock handling, assist with the everyday chores of feeding the pluimfee.

For the avid fly fishermen we have 11 dams, varying in size with some as large as 8 hectares, regularly stocked from our own hatchery. Although we promote catch and release a bag limit of 2 fish per angler is allowed. Cook it yourself in one of our self-catering units or let us prepare it for you in our restaurant (by prior arrangement).Enjoy the peace and quiet of farm life, sit around a fireplace, see the mist roll in .

Prefer to camp? Stands have electricity points, hot water ablutions and washing up areas. Make use off our mobile braais. Firewood and ice are always available.

Take a break and let the kids enjoy the playground filled with vintage farm equipment, or splash around in the year round heated natural spring water pool or Jacuzzi. You will be very comfortable in a cottage for two, a bungalow which sleeps three, a luxurious chalet or wooden cottage for six, or in the house which can sleep 11 people. Some feature a fireplace or coal stove and all have mountain views.

These are all self-catering units for your leisure.

For the tough and adventurous we also have campsites in a lovely setting.  Camping is a popular family holiday option that frees up money for other fun adventures.  You can choose to be under the trees or by the dam.  Plug points are available as well as ice and firewood.  There is hot water in the ablutions and also for washing up after your meals.

A natural spring heats our indoor swimming pool so you can delight in a warm splash all year around. We also have a great restaurant with a playground which boasts vintage farm equipment to keep your little boisterous ones fascinated.  We encourage children to also get involved in the daily feeding of the animals on the farm.

Weddings and conference for up to 180 guests have been a huge success.  Our chef has experience working in fine hotels.

Wedding photographers are always enthralled by the crisp clear air and magnificent backdrop. This is the place for jaw-dropping photographic moments.

Combine comfortable accommodation with fly fishing, game drives, bird watching, mountain biking, a playground and long walks for a healthy family holiday.
