From The Travelling Tortoise there is a scenic circular run, or cycle road of about 14km that takes you under the cutting of the rRd Stone hills.
A short walk from our gate will take you fields of ostrich - about 1000 in number.
A car drive of 10 minutes will take you to cutting through the Swartberg known as Meiringspoort. This is the main attraction of the area.
The drive takes you through stunning geological formations. Half way of the 21km is the spectacular waterfall. The deep pool formed from the ever flowing fall is a favorite for swimming.
