  • Description

    Description

    Nestled at the foot of the magnificent Steenkamps Mountains and overlooking the Kwena Dam, our Farm is situated on 160 hectares of farmland in the Kwena Basin, 30km from Lydenburg, in Mpumalanga.

    The Farm offers horse trails and hiking, as well as accommodation. We are a small family concern.

    We require the help of fit and happy volunteers to help wherever and whenever necessary on the farm! Must be competent horse rider, enjoy the outdoors and your own company at times! Very relaxed atmosphere with plenty of time off to explore.

    We have recently identified the existence of a Bokoni Village on the farm dating back to the 1600's. We are very keen to explore this further.

    Must be able to cook and look after yourself and not mind animals of all shapes and sizes coming and going in the house!! Horsey? Arty? Happy to be alone? Remote location - no bright lights or city scene close by!!!!
