Activities Fly-fishing for Rainbow, Brown and Spekboom Red Trout in three well stock dams totalling 2 hectares. Beautiful bushveld, like surroundings with abundant bird life for many hours of enjoyment for the bird lover. No formal hiking trail exists on the farm; walks can be undertaken by the visitors on one of the many pathways leading to the banks of the river with its dense riverine vegetation. Since the farm is situated in the transition between the Highveld and Lowveld, an interesting mixture of trees and other plants can be observed. The plants attract a wide range of birds and mammals that can be seen on walks. Guests are invited to picnic at the idyllic picnic spot on the banks of the Spekboom River, and even swim in the river. Wagendrift is ideally situated for day visits to the Kruger National Park (120km) or the scenic escarpment attractions such as Blyde River Canyon, Gods Window, Bourkes Luck Potholes, Waterfalls, Viewpoints, Pilgrims Rest and Longtom pass.
