ITINERARY 

  • Day 1

Potjie or Braai menu for this evening - we choose to hang out at our accom venue as it will give all the pet owners time to arrive & relax while the dogs get to know each other better - same goes for their owners! (Should the weather not allow for outdoor dining we will order in).

Warming up for your bike ride later - head out & meander through the fynbos, rhenosterveld & wetland areas of the reserve for about 2 hours. 
EXPLORE THE LABYRINTH @ WELBEDACHT
This unique labyrinth is beautifully integrated into its environment, a forest of blue gum trees, and is a wonderful space to feel a sense of connection with nature.
WILD LIFE @ WELBEDACHT
A large variety of fauna inhabit the reserve; from pole cats, caracal and cape fox to numerous buck species. The additional 15 hectare conservancy is home to herds of springbok, bontebok and zebra and forms part of a program for re-introduction of game.

 DINNER @ PADDAGANG 
We head to Paddagang for dinner... Local craft beer tasting of 6 Buchanan's Beers can also be enjoyed before dinner. My Sweetie Belguim Ale is named after Rob's trusted old Labrador! 
Traditional Boland cuisine & fine local beverages have been served here since 1821. Legend has it during the frogs mating season, the paddas (frogs) that inhabited the gardens would have to hop past the restaurant to the river to find their froggy companions. Hence the name, “frog’s passage”.
