The thing that is always amazing about being on a farm is the sound of silence. You realise something is different – the constant hum of city life is gone and the peace and quiet is something you can really feel. That’s when you notice other, more calming sounds – the hens and their little chicks cheeping around the garden, the goats and sheep, and the many different calls from the birds lining the branches of the trees.
Sample a true taste of country life – join in feeding the animals with the children, walk hand-in-hand through the fields, watch the wildlife, learn about real people’s lives on a real working farm.
Conveniently located between Johannesburg and Durban, only 10km off the N3, Estcourt South off-ramp, it is an ideal base from which to explore the many attractions of the area.
Our thatched, self-catering, cottage is spacious and sleeps 6. It is clean, cosy and warm with the added attraction of an open fire and a private lapa. There is plenty to see and do on the farm.
The area is crime-free and the roads are safe. There are ample opportunities for hiking, biking, birding, painting, photography and farm tracks to explore.
We offer you a comfortable and homely base with many attractions a short drive away, but you can of course come here and do absolutely nothing. We don’t mind! Just imagine the peace and tranquillity, with a log fire and a night full of stars . . .
We have enjoyed having visitors from all over the world, and look forward to meeting you at Leopard’s Lair.
