Play in Riversdale

cyclingHiking

Riversdal is n lekker plek om niks te doen nie, maar ook n plek waar jy alles kan doen wat na aan die natuur is – hier ervaar jy nog God se nabyheid!!

Onthou jou verkyker om al die pragtige diertjies en voeltjies te aanskou…… die lewe is om teen sononder agter op n oop bakkie in die veld te ry, met jou hare gekoek en jou asem weg geslaan.

Kom staan op n berg!! Verf n blom, Sit in n grot.  Slaap bo-op Sleeping Beauty se kop!

Sit voor n kaggel, swem in n dam, stort onder n waterval, vang n vis, klim n boom, huur n fiets.  Bestel n piekniekmandjie, of n rugsak vol lekker dinge vir n lekker uitstappie

Dit is Riversdal waar ons n KWALITEIT LEWE LEEF.

Ry n plaaspad, kom kyk ons pragtige fynbos en blomme.  Kom proe wyn.  Klim bo-op Sleeping Beauty en skryf jou naam in die boekie!  Ry 4×4 roetes en beisgtig ons eie fynbos-World Heritage Site.


Hiking

Hiking Sleeping Beauty Mountain

The Sleeping Beauty hiking trail covers a distance of 13 km from its start at the Toll House to the crest of Sleeping Beauty and back.  Views from the top are magnificent.

The trail starts gentle as it passes through massive thickets of proteas. There is plenty of water at the base of the mountain and you can fill your water bottle up at any of the streams you must cross.

The trail covers a distance of 13 km from the old Toll House to the crest of Sleeping Beauty and back. It is an easy walk through the lovely fynbos with an abundance of birdlife. The last stretch is 1,5 km to the summit.

At the summit you are rewarded with views of Riversdale, Korentepoort dam and on a clear day the ocean in the distance.

The fynbos is spectacular. Loads of proteas, heather and many more.
