Wellington is a picturesque town and is surrounded by farmland and nature conservation areas. The endless vistas, indigenous flora and fauna and wildlife makes it the ideal destination for discovering our town in a much more interesting way than by car.

Bontebok Ridge

Bontebok Ridge offers an approximate two hour drive through the reserve on an open Landrover, guided by someone with a good understanding of the area before arriving at the lapa.

Here you can settle down and enjoy wine or light refreshments and homemade snacks at your leisure until it’s time to return back to reality.

The farm is part of the Renosterveld Conservancy in the Limietberg Valley. It offers a rare opportunity to appreciate some of South Africa’s wildlife in their natural habitat- bontebok, found exclusively in the Cape, mingle with eland, wildebeest, red hartebeest, springbuck, duiker, grysbuck, grey rhebuck, and other indigenous species. The majestic mountains add to the rugged appeal of the drive.

For bigger groups a tractor and wagon will take you on the nature drive.
