Off the bike
Sanddrif is the ideal base for nature lovers and the adventurous: trail hikers, mountain bikers and rock climbers. It is accessible but retains an air of remoteness, which makes it the perfect break-away for city dwellers. There’s a lot to do and enjoy: four well-known day hikes, bird watching, swimming, rock climbing, camping, mountain biking, a unique observatory and rock art. The less fit can enjoy the cool crystal-clear waters of the Maalgat pools only a 35 minute walk away, wander through the Valley of the Red Gods, watch the sun set the mountains on fire and later admire the star-studded sky from around the campfire.
