Tranquilitas Adventure Farm – Waterval Boven

Tranquilitas Adventure Farm provides entertainment for mountain bikers, hikers, rock climbers and bird watchers. Situated on the ridge overlooking the Elands River valley and Waterval Onder, the venue provides some of the most incredible views in the area. The six current trails are very well balanced in terms of climbing and descending, trail markings are excellent and we guarantee you will find yourself riding them over and over. Do not be fooled by the green trail that takes you out to the valley, this is definitely not child friendly but the blue trail will accommodate children with geared bikes and there are jeep tracks around the campsite that will keep them busy. The trails mainly consist of beautiful winding single track with some bridges and switchbacks to throw some variation into the mix. Trail permits can be bought at the Roc ‘n Rope in Waterval Boven during business hours or at the farm managers premises after hours.

Oi!! Keep an eye out for arrows on the faster sections.
