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.
