  • Boschendal is a majestic estate with something for everyone. From food to mountain biking. There are a deli and restaurant with picnic facilities under the shades of beautiful trees. Mountain bikes can be rented and ridden on the flowing trail network on the other side of the road. There are also a few guesthouses available for those who want to experience the farm life overnight.
