Activities on the farm
There are numerous activities on the farm to suit all tastes and preferences.Between the vines and fruit trees there are many roads that are ideal for walks. You may just catch fruit harvest time, which will allow you to pick fresh peaches and apricots. There is a dam for paddling, fishing and swimming, but if dam swimming is not for you, take a swim in our 25m indoor heated swimming pool.
Walking and hiking
We have walking trails over much of the 458 hectare area of the farm, many offering spectacular views of the farm, the Langeberg mountains, and the quaint village of McGregor. On the top of one of our hills overlooking the farm and the village of McGregor we have a bench with a view for enjoying a peaceful sundowner. Bird life is plentiful and is ideal for bird watchers who are sure to hear the call of the fish eagle. But if all you want to do is relax you will have no problem getting away from it all, and catching your breath. And, of course, if you’re planning on doing the McGregor to Grayton walk, in one or both directions, we can assist with arranging transport to the start of the walk in the Riviersonderend Mountains.
Sempurna has a 25m enclosed and heated swimming pool. It is ideal not only for casual swimming but is perfect for serious training. There is also a gym facility with an exercise machine and stationary bike in the pool area. The pool is not open to the public, and is available for exclusive use by those staying on the farm on weekends.
Our 11km mountain bike/trail running route feature a single track through unspoiled Karoo fynbos, with differing levels of difficulty. Both the Cape Epic, as well as The Ride2Nowhere, have traversed through the farm. There are also numerous other mountain biking routes in the nearby vicinity.
In and around McGregor
In McGregor one can explore the various art and craft galleries, coffee shops, and restaurants. Every Saturday morning there is a market selling home made goods and food. If you are looking to relax there is opportunity for various types of massages. The Vrolikheid nature reserve is not far from Sempurna Estate and boasts abundant bird life. McGregor is famous for the Eseltjiesrus Donkey Sanctuary. The sanctuary is home to neglected and old donkeys.
