10 NEARBY ACTIVITIES FOR NATURE LOVERS

Eikendal Lodge combines the splendour of the Western Cape Winelands, with luxurious accommodation, guaranteed to delight discerning traveller. Situated on a working wine farm, offering spectacular surroundings, guests of Eikendal are spoilt for choice when it comes to local activities and attractions.

Our top 10 choices for those who love the South African countryside:

  1. Explore the Vineyards

    Eikendal is known for its excellent quality wines, which include wonderful red and white varieties. Enjoy a guided cellar tour, and a comprehensive tasting of some of our signature wines in our stylishly appointed tasting room. Guests of Eikendal Lodge are also invited to be part of the fun and adventure that goes into producing a bottle of Eikendal’s finest whilst participating in the picking of the grapes. Enjoy the warm African sun and the cool Winelands breeze while being part of an integral, ancient process.

  2. Jonkershoek Nature Reserve

    This reserve covers a total area of just a little over 145 square kilometres and is settled at the foot of the Hottentots Holland Mountain Range. The reserve is ideal for those that have a keen interest in the local flora, as well as for avid bird-watchers. It is home to a wonderful variety of avian species and will prove most rewarding for those who remember their binoculars.

  3. Hiking, Walking and Cycling Trails

    There are a number of beautiful trails through the nearby mountains and nature reserves, including the Jonkershoek Nature Reserve. These range from short, easy strolls to more challenging hikes that require skill and fitness to complete. The views from these trails are absolutely spectacular and promise lifelong memories and stunning photographs. Road cyclists can explore the Cape Winelands comfortably by bike, while mountain bikers will love venturing out in the mountains and vineyards for some exciting and scenic rides.

  4. Scenic Flights

    The hum of the engines and the never-ending natural expanses make scenic flights over the Cape Winelands an absolute must. These formal tours showcase the breath-taking beauty of the area from a brand new perspective.

  5. Fly Fishing

    The dams of Eikendal are brimming with a variety of exciting fish to keep avid fishermen busy for days. Relax on the banks and wait for bass, trout and kurper to nibble, or indulge in a fly fishing lesson, conducted by Flywaters’ professionals. They will assist in bait choice, techniques and plenty of fascinating information about the area.

  6. The Cheetah Outreach Foundation & Anatolian Livestock Guarding Project

    This wonderful programme is determined to raise awareness in the community and to protect and preserve the cheetah, which continues to be hunted. It is community-based, and partners with other international cheetah organisations to achieve the best results. Education is of utmost importance. One of their subsidiary initiatives is to breed Turkish Anatolian Shepherd dogs, which are trained to keep sheep away from cheetahs on farms all over South Africa. This eliminates the perceived need for the farmers to shoot the cheetahs.

  7. Giraffe House Wildlife Awareness Centre

    This sanctuary protects and cares for a range of animal species, offering educational tours to groups of visitors. Interactive sessions allow visitors to touch and play with some of the animals. There are fabulous picnic facilities as well as a play area for the little ones. This is a great place for families who enjoy spending time in nature.

  8. Slaley Farm Market

    Enjoy the outdoors and the abundant produce of the Western Cape at the Slaley Farm Market. Browse the stalls and stock up on organic goods, homemade treats, fresh bread, gourmet coffees, local wines, and much more. The market is open on the last Sunday of every month.

  9. Horse Riding

    Enquire at Eikendal Lodge about several options for horse riding in the area. These are picturesque, and allow you to explore the area at a comfortable pace, while enjoying the serenity of interacting with one of these gentle, but powerful animals.
