Reach Out and Be Touched

Maybe not a typical farm visit but Oudtshoorn, known as the Ostrich Feather Capital, is where you will not only meet but may choose to ride an ostrich or perhaps even take part in an "Ostrich Derby"!

A world away is the home of TV’s famous ‘Meerkat Manor’ where the meerkats have become so accustomed to human presence they tolerate close attention without fear and even allow interaction. Enjoy observation tours in the early morning when the meerkats are most active.

In search of the ‘big five’ you may find yourself if you are lucky, in the outstandingly beautiful Waterberg Mountains; the sandstone walls and tented suites of Marataba Lodge demonstrate superbly the use of natural textures in contemporary properties.

Select a guided bush walk to really feel the earth under your feet!
