Things to Do

FISHING - The dam, on which the cottage is situated, is stocked with both bass and trout therefore offering all seasons fishing opportunities.
RELAXING - At the end of a perfect summer’s day spent fishing or simply just lazing about, sipping sundowners on the comfortable verandah will leave you with a sense of total relaxation. A book, a glass of red wine and a lovely roaring log fire on chilly winter evenings, is just the perfect way to end a lazy day.
HORSE RIDING - Explore this beautiful area of the Biggarsberg on horseback. Wonderful out rides can be arranged with Andrea Cronje from a farm close by. Andrea is passionate about her horses and her guest riders, taking care that every rider and horse are well matched. Andrea ensures that an exciting, happy and relaxed ride will be enjoyed by all.
BIRD WATCHING - Thatcher's offers abundant bird life for the nature lover and the avid birdwatcher alike. Over 75 different birds have been identified. Come and see if you can add more to our list.
THE BIG 5- Right on our doorstep! The Nambiti Conservancy, a wonderful new conservancy, in a malaria free area, offers game drives for day visitors. Booking is essential and subject to availability. Early morning, and evening drives are available with teas/coffee and snacks included in the fees.
WALKING- Both easy and more strenuous walks are available on the farm. Enjoy the breathtaking views of the farm and the outlying areas from various vantage points.
