The wellness centre is equipped with comfortable seating, natural hot springs, lap pool, steam room, sauna, frigidarium (The distinctive brown colour of the water is due to the rich mineral content known as chalybeate.), Swiss shower, elegant Victorian Bath House (erected 1897 and outdoor Jacuzzi. 

 

Day 2: After breakfast, you’ll travel to Oudtshoorn for a Heritage Tour at the Cango Caves. Located in a limestone ridge parallel to the picturesque Swartberg Mountains, the caves include over 4 km of drip stone caverns with vast halls and towering formations of stalactites and stalagmites. You’ll walk through some of this subterranean wonderland with your guide on a 1-hour tour of the caves. From here we go to an Ostrich Farm where the largest fowl in the world can be studied. We drive to our overnight farm at De Zeekoe (or similar). This area is surrounded by the Swartberg and Outeniqua mountains, and one of the world’s 17 “hot spots” with 3 overlapping flower zones, which is located between the lush green Garden Route and the wide-open spaces of the Klein (Little) Karoo with the Outeniqua and Swartberg mountain ranges as backdrop.
