Things to do

Activities – on site

  • Rest & Relaxation.  Enjoy the absolute Silence!
  • Jackie’s Holistic Massage Treatment - book a treatment with me in advance of your stay
  • Archery – book in advance with Andre for an introduction to field archery 
  • Clay Pigeon Shooting - only suitable when the whole farm is booked by one group (noise factor)
  • Hiking & Walking - a variety of gentle strolls to a more strenuous hike
  • Bird Watching – Prof Ryan (Percy Fitzpatrick Institute) recent comment " I saw 91 species in the immediate vicinity of Assegaai Rest, and another 23 down to the R60 (all in the same atlas pentad). As I mentioned, the juxtaposition of fynbos, Karoo and forest/thicket vegetation results in a rich mix of birds including 3 woodpeckers, 4 kingfishers, 6 pigeons and doves, etc. It also has the greatest density of Southern Tchagras that I've seen in the W Cape. I've never seen Victorin's Warblers rubbing shoulders with Layard's Titbabblers and Fairy Warblers."
  • Assegai House :
  • Rainy day? Kist in the lounge at has some board games and cards

  • Have a shower with a view - in the wild fig tree
