New Bow Hides:
We have some new hides and have refurbished some existing ones to include one-way tinted Perspex windows. Now you can have a wider field of sight, and be able to see animals approaching from further away.

We have installed stealth cameras outside the hides to improve our knowledge of frequenting animals as well as automated game feeders so we can improve the Bowhunter’s success rate.
The Old Stables Hunter’s Camp:
The Old Stables Hunter’s Camp has had a facelift in the form of a new stone walled sheltered braai area, with a new braai platform. It is now conveniently close to the house, much more sheltered from the prevailing winds, buts still overlooks the river, and is ideal for catching the morning sun.
We have recently enclosed the 22m-long Verandah at Lemoenrietfontein with a glass curtain, as well as adding a Swedish wood-burning stove to the Stoep and an indoor braai hearth. The glass enclosure will turn the verandah into a warm and cosy entertainment area that will be a part of the house, and not only an extension of it; making this the place to be this winter.
Rietfontein Butchery:
The Farm is equipped and has the appropriate facilities to slaughter the animals.
