The Kamberg Nature Reserve is 30 mins from the farm, there’s a great hike to some of the best bushman paintings. They have guided walks two or three times per day and a small restaurant with scones, muffins and toasted sandwiches. They also have a small theatre where they show a documentary on the Bushman and settlers in the this area, with more information on the bushman paintings.
