Mountain Biking Birdwatching Somerset East

As mentioned, Wilton Guest Farm's 13 000 ha encompass a variety of terrain, making it very interesting for both birders and mountain bikers.

Birdwatching

Birders are more than welcome to explore the property at their leisure and see how many species they can spot in the grazing veld and how many in the completely different environment along the Little Fish River.

Mountain Biking

Mountain bikers will find 45 km of "Classic Karoo Mountain Biking.  Rocky hills, distant views" (Andrew Hugo) divided into four trails.

The Green Route is a non-technical, family friendly 29 km ride which takes in some of the sights of the farm including the river and a beautiful dam.

The Blue Route takes you 23 km through some slightly more challenging terrain.

The Red Route, which is 38 km long, covers all the more challenging sections as well as visiting all the scenic portions of the farm.

The Black Route combines the Red and Green Routes into a 45 km ride which will appeal to the more active riders.

Andrew Hugo of Eastern Cape Mountain Biking rates Wilton as 8/10 for fun factor.

In addition to the tranquillity of the Karoo, enjoy the bonus of watching herds of Gemsbok and Kudu.  You can even arrange with your hosts to leave a picnic basket for you at the dam!
