Things to do...
Game viewing and bird watching are just some of the activities at Mountainview. Guests can enjoy these activities on mountain bike, quad-bike or in open safari vehicles on day or night drives. For those who prefer closer encounters with nature, hike along more than 20 kilometers of roadways and trails accompanied by our experienced and knowledgeable guides.
Hiking at Mountainview provides an invigorating experience. Guests may choose hikes on mountain trails, rock climbing along waterfalls, or taking in the spectacular views of the Waterbergs from high on the cliffs above Mountainview. Take off for the day with our trail map, and make sure to take the challenge of our rope-supported wooden bridge that fords our unique water dam. Enjoy walks or jogs through the countryside on over 20 km of mountain roads that wind through a wide variety of landscapes. Stroll past swaying fields of grasses, or climb Angel Falls / Eagle Gorge for a more intense workout. Escorted hikes can be arranged, or sit back and relax while viewing the constantly shifting scenes of wildlife on an escorted game drive.
For the young at heart, get an up-close experience with the animals in the Little Nursery petting zoo. Goats, chicks, geese, ducks and guinea fowl reside in our peaceful orange grove. Enjoy Barbara’s pond from its rope bridge, or plunge in and swim, tubing or "catch-and-release" fishing. It's a lovely spot for a picnic, brunch or sundowner. Gold in South Africa was first discovered on a farm at nearby Potgietersrus, so anything is possible!
