Optional Activities

The following are available from Frans Indongo:

Game drive
Frans Indongo is situated in the heart of a 17,000 hectare farm in the bush savannah. Only a small part of the farm is still utilised for agricultural purposes. The focus now is on caring for the game. Apart from oryx, zebra, kudu and springbok, there are also rarer species like eland, black wildebeest, as well as white and black rhino. A game drive in an open off-road vehicle (about two hours) offers plenty of opportunity to watch the animals and take photographs.

Self-guided walking trails
For those who like to explore on foot, Frans Indongo has three trails of differing lengths to choose from (approximately 1.5 to 4 hours). Quite often antelope will walk across the path. The effort of climbing the hilltop is rewarded with wonderful panoramic views of the vast bush savannah plains right across to Waterberg. Furthermore, there is much to learn about trees on the way. A botanist has numbered many typical trees and shrubs according to the ‘Pocket List of Southern African Indigenous Trees’. These are standard numbers, used in any good guidebook on plants, so that you can read up on any tree or shrub bearing a number.
