Winter brings the urge for snuggling up in a blanket, while sipping on a warm drink and toasting your toes by the fire. Oh yes!
This is undeniably one great way of spending a winter’s day at Likweti Bushveld Farm Estate, but as the average winter day can easily reach 21〫C there is a lot more to a winter at Likweti Estate than simply staying indoors!
The clear winter skies allow you to look over pristine bushveld for kilometres to the mountain escarpment far away. While the vivid reds, yellows and oranges of Likweti’s many aloe species punctuate the landscape with flashes of colour and the iconic calls of fish eagles fill the air.
This is the perfect time to go game viewing as the dry Lowveld winter brings animals closer to the dams and thins the vegetation. While summer sightings at Likweti are far from scarce, in winter the 765 hectare estate is just teaming with animal life. It’s the ideal time to try and spot one of Likweti Estate’s more elusive species, especially at night when civets, servals and porcupines come out to play!
The cooler weather makes getting active so much easier with plenty of space for trail running, mountain biking, hiking and other outdoor adventures. Or pack a flask of some hot coffee and settle down on one of our many lookout points and enjoy the magnificent colours of a winter sunset.
Afterwards you can build a big fire on your stoep and settle down as you watch the skies transform into a blanket of bright, shiny stars.
With only a limited number of one hectare stands still available in phase 1, act fast to secure your place in the winter wonderland that is Likweti Bushveld Farm Estate.
