Our motto: Hike more, worry less…

About

Enjoy this spectacular basecamp hike hidden away in the African Bush, conveniently close to Pretoria and Johannesburg.

Spitskop Game Farm is located approximately 01 hour 48 minutes from Menlyn (165 km) and 02 hours from Sandton (137 km). The farm is on the R52, between Rustenburg and Koster.

With the Selons River running through the farm, wildlife including Zebra, Kudu, Impala, Blue Wildebeest and Eland to be seen, Spitskop Game Farm is definitely an adventure of a lifetime that awaits you.

Waking up to the sounds of the African Bush and having your first cuppa while overlooking the magnificent view nature has to offer.

A truly tranquil setting, where you can find yourself again after the hustle and bustle of the busy big city days.

Walking the trails, sharing the house of the animal kingdom with them, dipping your toes or taking a splash in the cool river water.

Taking a moment to be quiet, but focused, you may bump into some four legged and feathered friends. Prepare yourself for a time filled with beautiful moments and creating memories with family and friends.
