Highland Giants is a fly fishing only venue and we respectfully request that you
only use barbless hooks. Float tubes are allowed.
Tuition can be arranged in advance.
We also have a wonderful variety of wild & bird life - Zebra; serval, caracal,
mountain reedbuck, duiker, fish eagle, spoon bills, to name but a few .
Our farm is also ideal for long hikes or not so long walks, with great views and
also some iron age Pedi Settlements and Trekboer ruins to wonder through!!
Obviously being situated in the Grassland of the Highveld we would recommend
that you bring sun block with you as well as some closed shoes should you decide
to go for a walk.
You are welcome to bring your mountain bikes with you. We do not allow quad
bikes or motor bikes due to the noise factor.
