The farm incorporates a game camp and offers game drives and a bird hide. The views of the Atlantic Coast and Table Mountain are spectacular. The popular restaurant (housed in the Manor House) offers modern country cuisine.

In spring the farm is covered in wildflowers. Along with these attractions, the compelling feature of the farm is its membership of the Biodiversity Wine Initiative with a commitment made to preserving thousands of hectares of endangered fynbos.

Koeberg Nature Reserve

Eskom controls 3000 ha of West Coast around the Koeberg Nuclear Power Station.

The elusive African wild cat, Grey mongoose and genet can also be seen. 153 Bird species can also be observed. A hidden treasure in the reserve is a large underground lake that supplies a lot of the surrounding areas with water.
