The Three named hikes are: Bushmen Paintings Hike, Bamboo Pools Hike and Waterfall Hike however there are numerous places to walk and adventure around the farm.
Bushmen Paintings hike is a 40min walk up and 20min walk down. From the cave you have a spectacular view of the lake and surrounding mountains. A wonderful place to picnic, have sundowners or just soak up all the beauty with your family and friends.
