With vast natural areas relatively untouched, the Fish Eagle hiking trail on our farm offers the ideal way to explore and see some of the Cape's finest examples of rare fauna and flora. The 7.5km biodiversity trail features informative signage. With the eight kilometres of river frontage running through the family-owned property alone, one of the truly remarkable experiences you can enjoy include hearing the call of fish eagles. The local bird club visits the area and up to 92 species have been spotted during a single morning – the most ever in the Breede River Valley. The Fish Eagle hiking trail starts on the estate and takes visitors along the river, as well as through the various veld types found here.
An extremely rare feature on the farm is a special rock formation shaped some 1.3 million years ago, only found on this farm and near the town of Sutherland. The Goedemoed (or Klaasvoogds) Olive Melilitite intrusion forms a conspicuous dark triangle on the Elandsberg hill south of the Van Loveren cellar. This marks where molten magma rose from deep within the earth. When it was blocked from erupting as a volcano, the magma cooled to form the pipe formation.
