Historical sites:

Stone structures are found on very high points with excellent views on the flats below the mountain. There is a great possibility that the structures are remnants from either the 1st or 2nd Boer War. It is highly possible that Boer forces who were known to erect ‘blockhouses’ and cairns, erected these structures in order to spy on troop movements in the area. Not only were there excellent views from the structures, but it also provided the necessary protection against enemy bullets.


  • Fly-fishing for rainbow, brown and golden trout (catch and release);
  • Bird-watching; and
  • Scenic walks to battlefield structures and the indigenous forest.


Accommodation is offered in two self-catering, fully serviced and spacious en-suite cottages with two bedrooms each, or one cottage with one bedroom, en-suite. All the cottages have their own fireplaces.
