A good network of farm roads enables the cyclist to enjoy riding in the bush. Tracks are either smooth or 4x4. There is always the possibility of coming face to face with a Zebra or a Giraffe around the next corner! Alternatively, the public roads outside the farm have very little traffic and offer longer scenic rides.
Izintaba offers a diversity of habitats from open plains to rocky kloofs, to dams and seasonal rivers. This enables it to support a wide selection of wildlife. Guests are able to drive in their own cars on the farm roads to look for game. Most roads are suitable for sedan cars and only a few require 4x4. A map of the farm is provided on arrival. Alternatively we do also offer guided game drives on an open landrover with a qualified guide.
Izintaba supports a wide range of fauna and flora, and because we do not have any dangerous game, the best way to take it all in and enjoy the beautiful scenery is on foot. There are game paths and with over 25km of roads on the property one can enjoy long easy leisurely walks. For the more energetic, there is a marked walking trail leading down a scenic kloof, which has waterfalls and rock pools in the rainy season. For the less energetic, there is much less strenuous marked footpath that follows the game paths and meanders around the cottages.
Discover the joy of bird watching with over 200 species recorded in the area. Check lists provided on request.
Cool off in the large swimming pool set amongst large boulders with lovely views.
The flora is very diversified due to the variety of habitats. It's a wonderful hobby to walk about identifying trees and wild flowers with a good reference book.
Pack a picnic and enjoy the surroundings at one of our two picnic sites. One is situated on the banks of the dam, the other is close to the start of the walking trail with beautiful views.
There are endless possibilities for the keen nature photographer, especially as guests have access to all areas of the property, including a few hides.
