Activities
Quad-bike & scrambler trails: 

Bring your own bikes for rides of a lifetime – groups & families are most welcome. The spectacular mountainous terrain of the Southern Drakensberg is the perfect setting for awesome guided trails that provide fun for the whole family. Steep mountain tracks (up to 2750m) and challenging river crossings test your technical riding skills. 

4x4 trails:
Drive the spectacular 8 passes and use Reedsdell as your base. 

Rock Art:
We will take you to visit some of our special Rock Art on neighbouring farms in the area. These sites have been well documented & published by the academic authorities on Rock Art at the University of the Witwatersrand. These trips are strictly guided and only available with the farm-owners’ permission. This is a brief visit but for a more detailed excursion, please contact our Rock Art Specialist guide, Dawn Green.

Fly-fishing:
Fish wild trout in the crystal clear Joggem River and Edgehill stream. Access to other rivers in the area can be arranged.

Birding, botany & nature walks:
The Drakensberg is a birder’s paradise. Take in the lovely sight of the Lammergeier or Black Eagle, stop to watch the Jackal Buzzard looking for prey or admire the elegance of the Crested Crane in the sunset. Wildflowers abound after the first summer rains - wild agapanthus put on a fantastic display, as do the Erica’s, gladioli, orchids and red hot pokers. These you can view within an easy walk from the farmhouse. For the more energetic, longer walks are teeming with hidden rewards – allow Tskholo to show you some of our more special fauna & flora. Take a packed picnic to enjoy at the river along your walk.

Skiing holidays:
Enjoy the convenience of skiing at Tiffindell Ski Resort (30km away) in the winter months as a day visitor. Stay at Reedsdell where you enjoy sumptuous meals and warm beds at the end of an exciting day.
