Loads of activities abound for the adventure seeker, from horse riding, shark cage diving and river cruises, to whale watching, birding and fishing.

Simba, the friendly farm manager, is always available and is fantastic with kids. This idyllic piece of land is equally enticing to kids and adults.

The farm provides the perfect escape from reality, yet it is only a stone's throw away from Stanford Town and the wider Walker Bay region. 

The cabin is pet friendly - your fur baby will not forgive you for leaving him behind!
