Bush Walks

This activity provides the perfect opportunity to get in touch with and learn more about the smaller flora and fauna in the reserve. The walk usually lasts an hour to an hour and a half. Whether you are looking for a gentle stroll or a more strenuous bush walk, we happily tailor bush walks to your fitness levels and requirements.

The beauty of nature is best enjoyed on foot. Guests are encouraged to traverse the reserve on our nature trails to take in the details during this sensory safari pastime. Aloe Ridge, Fig Tree, and the dam are some of the major landmarks for walkers who are keen to hit the trail. For the best experience, we recommend walking with one of our knowledgeable field guides, whose insights fill walks with wonder and interesting new facts.
