Breathtaking landscapes, rare insects, birds and plants, the Tankwa Karoo is a nature photographer's dream. At night the Milky Way is clearly visible streaked across the sky and makes for magical photo's. Come test your photography skills here!
GAME DRIVES & SELF DRIVES
View our wild antelope, be shown medicinal plants and taught about the Tankwa Karoo's history and significance as an ecosystem. These drives take about 2-3 hours since the game farm is large (8500 ha). R 150 pp in a group or R 300 per single person (subject to availability). If your vehicle allows you can do a self-drive on the reserve. Just be mindful of the plants and keep in the designated pathways.
RIVERBED BRAAI OR PICNIC
Pack in your grill, some beer, boerewors roll or two and have a braai in a dry riverbed. Better yet, pack a picnic lunch and make a day of it!
NATURE & GUIDED WALKS
Spend some time alone in the veld and you might spot some interesting plants and animals. You can also book a guided walk for your group at R60 pp (groups of 10 or more only) and take a 1 to 2 hour walk with one of the staff who will tell you a bit more about the interesting fauna and flora of the Tankwa Karoo. Look at plants, tracks, ecological niches and open your eyes to the beauty of this landscape.
HUNTING (IN SEASON)
Ecological Hunting is performed only in season and is facilitated by our PH. Prices and availability vary each year as we do not hunt for sport, but for maintenance purposes only. Contact Andréour PH for more information.
CYCLING & MOUNTAIN BIKING
Bring along your bike and take a ride on the reserve and get some exercise in the fresh air. There are sandy trails, rocky climbs and steady meanders.
Sadawa has a abundance of bird species. Look for them near our dams and watering holes or along the riverbeds. Tankwa Birding booklets are also for sale at R 20 each.
See the Karoo in a different light - or no light, but that of the moon and stars.
