Crystal Hike at Rooiberg Wild


Wandering around in the Klein Karoo, you might notice exquisite, shiny white rocks that stand out from the rest of the surrounding terrain. Rooiberg Wild Private Game Reserve offers visitors the opportunity to partake in Crystal Hunting, a nostalgic experience to enjoy as they explore the farm.

While hiking Leopards Gorge, crystals can be found mounted inside the rocks or in the river bed, waiting patiently to be discovered. Once you have found your first crystal, the experience of the hunt can become quite addictive and before you know it, you have embarked on an epic expedition to discover more of this hidden natural “treasure”.

Some people believe that these crystals amplify energy by absorbing, storing, releasing, and regulating it. It’s also said to aid concentration and memory. Physically, clear crystals are claimed to help stimulate the immune system and balance out your entire body. Whatever you believe, one thing is certain – they are amazing to behold.

Book your adventure at Rooiberg Wild Private Game Reserve today, and see what you can discover in the beautiful Klein Karoo.

Touch two mountains – LEOPARD’S CLIFF HIKING TRAIL


This picturesque hike lures you into the mountains with a walking trail that’s ever decreasing and the skyscraper cliffs on both sides of the riverbed.

Before you know it, you are there, walking the walk. Now, when we got a farm in Ladismith I thought the earth was flat and what do you know; it’s not. Mountains, mountains everywhere! The town of Ladismith, on Route 62 in the Klein Karoo, has so many mountains that it just begs for an International Mountain Climbing event!

The stunning and unique flora, called Succulent Karoo (they vary in appearance; from little roses to water-filled bubbles), gives this Klein Karoo farm quite a unique terrain. Where most of the Klein Karoo (and parts of the farm) is semi-desert, this little piece of earth, just a dot on the world map, boasts thousands of totally unique plants that co-exists with a very spectacular & distinctly different look. The Klein Karoo is rated under the top 10 most protected biodiversities in the world.
