Things to do

Activities – on site

  • Rest & Relaxation.  Enjoy the absolute Silence!
  • Jackie’s Holistic Massage Treatment - book a treatment with me in advance of your stay
  • Archery – book in advance with Andre for an introduction to field archery 
  • Clay Pigeon Shooting - only suitable when the whole farm is booked by one group (noise factor)
  • Hiking & Walking - a variety of gentle strolls to a more strenuous hike
  • Bird Watching – Prof Ryan (Percy Fitzpatrick Institute) recent comment " I saw 91 species in the immediate vicinity of Assegaai Rest, and another 23 down to the R60 (all in the same atlas pentad). As I mentioned, the juxtaposition of fynbos, Karoo and forest/thicket vegetation results in a rich mix of birds including 3 woodpeckers, 4 kingfishers, 6 pigeons and doves, etc. It also has the greatest density of Southern Tchagras that I've seen in the W Cape. I've never seen Victorin's Warblers rubbing shoulders with Layard's Titbabblers and Fairy Warblers."
  • Assegai House :
  • Rainy day? Kist in the lounge at has some board games and cards
  • Retire to the hammock with a good book
  • Have a shower with a view - in the wild fig tree

What's News

Ons het so lekker ontspan en 'recharge' na 'n mal week in die stad.  Wens ons kan elk naweek kom kop skoonmaak tussen die berge @AssegaiRest. Baie dankie.

Dankie vir die mooi wat julle met ons gedeel het. Plekke soos hierdie los 'n spoor op mens se herinneringe wat deel is van 'n journey na binne.  Mag baie lig, lewe en vrede julle droom vlerke gee.

Wanda & Mark - 16 June 2015

By far and away the best pet friendly accommodation yet!  We enjoyed the wonderful big shady garden and the peace and quiet. Our dogs (and the dog walkers) enjoyed the beautiful hiking routes on your farm.

Thank you Jackie and Andre, what an amazing experience! The fairy forest was the icing on top of one very unique cake...lovely hikes, great little surprises and peace in a beautiful setting. I recommend the Teepee experience to anyone who is able to.

We loved our very special Christmas here!  What a beautiful space with such attention to detail.  A home away from home.  We will be back in a hurry.
