The Hennops Offroad Trails is one of the most popular and renowned 4×4 trails in Gauteng and is sited in a high mountainous section of the property with dongas, mud holes and other treacherous, man-made obstacles. The course covers some 200 hectares in an area that is also game-fenced and stocked with blue wildebeest, zebra, kudu, blesbok and other small game species. There is ablution facilities and a thatched lapa that can accommodate small functions.

Hennops Hiking trail offers the choice of 3 circular routes (2,5km, 7km and 11km) with overnight facilities for up to 18 hikers. Hennops Picnic Spot is sited next to Hennops River itself and offer 2 swimming pools, ablution facilties and ample braai facilities for day visitors. This is where the first picnic spot in Hennopsriver was established back in 1928 and the natural beauty includes the Hennops River flowing through a valley bordered by mountain ranges to the north and south.

In addition to these recreational facilties, other areas of the property are currently utilised for cattle grazing and irrigated crop cultivation. The overall environment with its striking natural beauty and abundant water lends itself perfectly towards nature related activities for either tranquility or thrill-seeking residents of the Johannesburg and Pretoria urban areas.

atjiesvlei Valley, Bô­jaankop is a relatively easy 15km self-drive circular trail that traverses the foothills of the Swartberg Mountains. The whole area is really an undiscovered gem and one could easily base oneself at Bôjaankop and spend several days exploring the back routes in the area and enjoying the local flavour. They are unquestionably some of the most scenic drives on offer in South Africa. On top of that, the history of the area is very fascinating. Give Bennie and Selma the chance and they will happily fill you in on some of the details of the area. In fact, Bennie grew up with the original Gamkaskloovers crossing his farm to access their hidden valley

The trail:
Bô­jaankop trail crosses the rocky Gamka River and climbs steeply up the rugged, fynbos-covered Bôjaankop to some 540m above sea-level. From this vantage point you have a 360° view of the surrounding mountains, including an unusual peek into Gamkaskoof/Die Hel. The trail follows the course of the river on the old drag tracks of the Gamkaskloof sharecroppers where they dragged their bundles of wood out of the valley for witblits distillation. To complete the main trail, low range and a 4x4 with good ground clearance is required, but provision has been made for softroaders.
