Set alongside the main N2 highway, this historic farmstead has been in the same hands since 1873, the Fowlds family having both cleared the land of big game in order to farm and are now are responsible for its return. A reasonably uncommercial and personable homestead, there are just five cosy rooms, homely public areas and a pool.

Activities are centred around vehicle safaris and walking safaris on the reserve.
