Country charm often rests on the offering of peace and tranquility in an appealing rural setting. In Bonnievale, you get that and more.

The trifecta of wild mountains, slow-rolling rivers and sprawling fruit and wine farms means there are plenty of ways to be active and adventurous in our valley this summer.

The wilderness areas include a number of nature reserves, including places like Vrolijkheid and Twisniet that will put birdwatchers and fynbos-lovers in their element.

Around Bonnievale itself, you can fish in farm dams; explore on a handful of 4×4 trails; and, take a boat down the Breede River. With the simplest of equipment – a pair of walking or running shoes, or a bicycle – you can swop the drudge of a city gym for a training session surrounded by the most splendid scenery.

With Bonnievale as your base, you’ll find an even wider selection of Adrenalin-pumping adventures only minutes away. There’s skydiving above Robertson; zip-lining over magnificent arid landscapes; riding quad-bikes over sky-touching mountain peaks; kloofing in fynbos-shrouded valleys; rock climbing; and, abseiling.

Now, all that remains is to make that booking and you’ll want to book early.
