A mere stone’s throw away from numerous historic towns, Skeiding provides a convenient gateway to numerous hiking trails and natural tourist attractions in the region. Be sure to browse through our recommended one-day tours to ensure that you visit all the hot spots while you’re here.

Farm Tour

If you’re not afraid to get your hands dirty, join Neels on a hands-on tour of our beautiful farm. Every tour is different and could involve feeding the ostriches, watching our sheepdogs, Flink and Fiela, in action, learning about the cattle, and much more. The farm tour usually commences at 07:30 (yes, lekker early before breakfast!)

The Skeiding Olympiad is a one-of-a-kind Olympiad. Each morning just after the farm tour you have the chance to join in on the fun to see how long you can stand with one leg on an Ostrich egg. Currently the record is 3 min 47 sec.
