Microlight flights - Umshanti
At Umshanti, near Swellendam in the Western Cape, you can get a bird’s-eye view of the farmlands of the Overberg aboard a microlight. Kosie van Zyl assures us that almost every single person lands with such an adrenaline rush they want to get straight back into the air again. Kosie has clocked up countless flights over 23 years so that’s a whole lot of experience behind the controls. The flight takes you over the Umshanti resort, their cottages on the Buffelsjag Dam and the neatly portioned farmlands of the Swellendam surrounds.

River cruises - Umshanti
Even visitors not staying at Umshanti can book the River Cruise and braai on it. Book in advance to avoid disappointment. The boat trip is about 15 minutes and then Oom Kosie parks the boat in a perfect spot and leave the boat. On the boat is wood and a braai, you have to bring your own meat and drinks as well as cutlery ect. There is a canoe and board attached to the boat which you then can use to paddle up the gorge- it is a really short paddle to what they call the waterfall. The gorge is beatiful, but short, ideal for kids! Can also swim in the water!

Zipline - Umshanti
You can enjoy nature’s wonderland with thrilling 200 m zip line ‘foefie slide’ rides

Canola Mountain Bike tours
Mountain Biking past Canola fields during July and August is realy amazing. Getting in long hours on the bicycle to prepare for races like the Trans Baviaans seems almost easy in this picturesque landscape.

Riding @ Appelsbosch
We believe in a holistic approach to horse training and keeping. In other words we strive to provide the horse with as natural an environment and circumstances as possible in all areas of their lives – home, family, friends, food and work(training). As riding horses is not natural to the horse, we strive to keep our approach as pleasant and ethical as possible. We strive for “Harmonious Horse-Human Handling” (Debra-Leigh Mohle)
