Aardvark has an extensive network of carefully designed mountain bike trails on both the Eastern and Western sides of the reserve. These trails cater for both beginners (blue) and advanced (red) riders. There are various routes and segments including our unique network of “green trails” that carefully follow animal tracks. Trails range from 5km to 65km and can be downloaded on your Garmin.

Complimentary BASKET

We grow our own organic vegetables/fruit and you will receive a complimentary basket subject to seasonal availability. We also offer truly free-range chickens, lamb and game products (Springbok, Kudu, Ostrich, Eland, etc.). Our produce is of course organic and animals roam freely on Aardvark. Yes – they do taste much better than what is available in most stores.


A sun-downer nature drive on the eastern section is available subject to availability and weather conditions. The game vehicle(s) will be shared with other guests. Game includes Springbok, Eland, Kudu, Oryx, Giraffes, Ostriches, Blesbuck and Zebras.


Included with all of our cottages is your own private wood-fired hot tub. There is no better way to view the Milky Way.

*Firewood is included.


There are numerous hiking trails ranging from easy to strenuous. On the eastern side of the farm these trails (Eland, Kudu and Springbok) are well marked.


The Klein Karoo is famous for its succulents and Aardvark is no exception. Our succulents bloom from as early as July through spring and with good winter rains the reserve turns into a sea of colour. Special walks with a succulent expert can be arranged subject to his availability.
