Nature Walk

Free of charge

Trails (ranging between 2 – 9km) on the farm can be arranged with a  guide free of charge. This is a particularly great activity for families with young children that may not join the Game Walk in the reserve. It is an interpretive experience, that focuses on the small things – plants, insects, tracking & sometimes even game spotting.

Mountain Bike Rides

R550 per person 

Exhilarating mountain bike trails on the farm snake through the hills, following narrow single tracks. For casual riders a gentle free-wheel down to the village is also memorable. Bikes, helmets & gloves are available for the use of guests. Guided trails range between 2km – 20km. (R595 per person –  2024) (R685 per person – 2025)

game walk in the spioenkop reserve

Game Walks

R695 per person 

Bush walks in the neighbouring Spioenkop Game Reserve can be pre-arranged with our resident guides. These are more strenuous than the Nature Trails on the farm, as the route does not follow a set trail. Uneven, rocky, hilly terrain will be encountered and walks may last between 1.5 – 2 hours. Maximum number of people is 8. Minimum charge is 2 persons. (2025 - R800pp)

Unfortunately, no children under 12 years allowed.

Guided Horse Trail Riding

R825 per person

Trail Rides can be arranged to suit the experience and pace of the riders.  Inexperienced rides are approximately 30 – 45 minutes, while experienced rides 60 – 90 minutes. English-style saddles with snaffle bridles are used. Hard helmets are compulsory. These are provided. Rides are taken on the working cattle farm, adjacent to the game reserve, where game may be seen from time to time. Maximum weight limit of 90kg. (2025 - R950pp)

Guided Artillery Battlefield Hiking Trail

R595 per person

This is a fantastic battlefield option for families with children, since it involves a gentle stroll (5km) to the summit of Three Tree Hill, which was captured on the 20th January 1900 and became General Warren's headquarters. A shorter version (approximately 2 hours) of the Spioenkop Tour. Spectacular views of Spioenkop from the firing positions of the British. (2025 - R685pp)

Hambrook Village Excursion

R595 per person, which is donated to the Community Fund

A truly authentic experience with one of the Three Trees staff members that takes you to the nearby village (8km down the road) for a look into the lives of the Hambrook residents. Pop into the pre-school & visit someone’s home.  (2025 - R685pp)
