On property, there are several adventurous directions to head in. If looking to get your game on, game drives, bush walks and mountain biking are but a few ways to explore the wildlife and the 350,000 African acres available within the private reserve. If an English angle or a nod to the past is your preference, equestrian adventures are also available. You can choose from a thoroughbred, a variety of cross breeds or a South African Boerperd, an indigenous African breed.
Apres adventure can be spent plunging in to your own private pool, indulging in a spa treatment or soaking in the African silence on the veranda.
But perhaps most appealing for Grantham wannabe is that dinner is served by torchlight outdoors, candlelight indoors. Spirited conversations continue well into the night and often in the library. They are often accompanied by bubbles, fine wines and top scotch.
