Come and enjoy an adventure camp at Salpeterkrans at the foot of the picturesque Steenkampsberg with a magnificent view over the Draaikraal valley in Mpumalanga. Although the farms offers both fly fishing and the adventure activities, the two never interfere with one another as each is practised in specific sections of the farm.
Salpeterkrans is 1 760 m above sea level and the average rainfall 850 mm per year. A wide variety of wild flowers and birds occur. It is therefore an ideal place for serious bird watchers, while long hikes in the veld is the order of the day if you are not into fish.
Typical of the environment are the extensive wetlands and the Klip River winding through the valley. At night, round the campfire at the Klipkraal lapa, you will be fascinated by the silhouette of the surrounding mountains and the millions of stars.
Commercial beef cattle is the main farming activity at the approximately 2 400 hectare farm.
Salpeterkrans is also well-known for eco-tourism, MTB and horse trails, while 4x4 lovers have ample opportunity to test their skill on a new section of the farm.
The facilities include an adventure hall, 2 dormitories with bunk beds, a large ablution block with flush toilets and hot showers, a tuck-shop and a fully equipped kitchen where Wilna ensures that each group eats a sufficient helping of her deliciously prepared healthy meals.
The veld is the outdoor classroom and stimulates every individual to become aware, to experience and to learn more about the total environment.
To make the most of Salpeterkrans sunshine there a variety of outdoor activities are offered. Some activities, like horse riding, are offered on neighbouring farms.
