Things to Do

Schaefers’ Halt is a secure and scenic country property where scenic walks, mountain hikes, bird watching and mountain biking can be enjoyed. Throughout the spring and summer months wild flowers are abundant and the beautiful country gardens attract many birds. The area offers excellent bird watching opportunities. Rolling grasslands are home to endangered cranes and the vast and rugged landscape offers nesting sites for Bald Ibis.

Guests can try their hand at the gentle art of fly-fishing in the four ponds of the farm or catch a wild trout on a stretch of the Dorps River. Trout rods and kit can be hired and day fishing can also be arranged for you at other venues at your request.

Just a short drive from the lodge is the quaint town of Dullstroom with its many pubs, restaurants and quirky shops offering a unique insight into country life. For the ultimate in relaxation, beauty therapy is offered in a tranquil environment. A visit to the Bird of Prey Centre just beyond Dullstroom gives a fascinating insight into bird rehabilitation and raptor behaviour as well as displays of falconry. Horse riding and mountain biking are available nearby.

This is a central spot for embarking on short, medium or long MTB trails with exciting challenges

Lydenburg, 20 minutes from Schaefers’ Halt, offers golf, tennis and bowls and practical shopping for those requiring provisions. Visit the small Lydenburg museum displaying the Lydenburg Heads, an early example of African sculpture and a display of Voortrekker memorabilia.

Lydenburg is at the foot of the Longtom Pass, a historic and spectacular route leading to the many tourist attractions that are within reach on a day trip – Pilgrims Rest, Blyde River Canyon, God’s Window and the many waterfalls and look-out points along the way.

Things to do: fishing, hiking, birding, bird watching & mountain biking
