Paardeplaats ‘full moon hike’:

A very special experience and a popular group and family activity, particularly in autumn when the weather plays along, is a ’full moon hike’. This is the prime ingredient for fellowship in nature, whether it be with like minded friends, strangers or family!

Departing at 18h30, just before the moon rises, (Gerda will lead the hike and show you the way), walking in silence on any of our scenic hiking routes, watching the spectacular full moon rise over Mt Anderson, with a strong possibility of seeing some of the nocturnal animals that occur on the farm (leopards, jackals, brown hyenas, aardwolwe, porcupines, servals, civets). Of course, a pair of good infra red binoculars, would enhance the experience no end.

Then returning at about 20h30 to the ‘Miners Canteen’ for your well earned braai and your favourite red wine, around a roaring log fire, which Brian will prepare in your absence.


Imagine the effects on any impressionable young or older minds – This is what memories are made of! All you need are good walking/hiking shoes, warm clothing and a beanie, a good torch at times, your camera and binocs and a small rucksack.


The next full moon hike falling on a weekend is Saturday 7th January 2020. For further enquiries or information please contact Brian 082 416 1379 or Gerda 079 515 7799.
We can work out a special package for families or a group of friends.
