JOIN US ON A GUIDED GAME DRIVE!

Climb aboard Vredenheim’s new game drive vehicle for an experience of our estate like no other.

Your journey begins at our Tasting Room, where our guide will lead you to the game drive vehicle. Make sure you have brought along your camera, as you will want to start snapping pictures as soon as the wheels start turning! Your guide will slowly make their way out of the estate, viewing a variety of game and birdlife in our fields.Keep your eyes peeled for zebras and fallow deer.

Next, you will be heading over the highway and make your way into the field which our blue and golden wildebeest call home. These beautiful animals are a sight to behold, especially the golden wildebeest, with its namesake colouring.

Our sable male and his females live in the adjacent field, which is also where our game drive vehicle will come to a stop for refreshments. Sip on a glass of our sparkling wine or grape juice and nibble on a delicious snack platter (think nuts, sweet treats and biltong) whilst taking in the spectacular mountain and farm views.

 

Afterwards, the route heads back along our main entrance way, but this time will circle around the barn towards the Big Cats Park. Whilst the game
drive doesn’t enter the park, you’ll be able to sight our leopard, tigers and even lions from your seat.

The entire trip takes 2 hours and includes a bottle of water, glass of white wine or grape juice and a cheese snack.
