Things to do

Activities – on site

  • Rest & Relaxation.  Enjoy the absolute Silence!
  • Jackie’s Holistic Massage Treatment - book a massage treatment with me in advance of your stay. Couples massage on request.
  • Field Archery (bow & arrow shooting) – book in advance with Andre for an introduction to field archery.  Great fun for families! 
  • Hiking & Walking - a variety of gentle strolls to a more strenuous hike (guided hikes including picnic on request)
  • 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 ~Shower with a view, in the Wild Fig Tree
  • Noy Noy TiPi : Relax in the hammocks on the deck ~ challenge your partner to a game of poker or dominoes.
