Bateleur is well-known for its hiking trails. There is a of a network of about 10 different routes, which cater for beginners, as well as seasoned hikers. Relax around a camp fire at
one of our self-catering cottages, spacious farmhouses, or hikers basecamps, or cool off in the rock pools, the swimming pool or a farm dam.
Please note that Bateleur is not a pleasure resort and we offer no additional recreational or entertainment facilities, such as slippery slides, shops or restaurants. If unspoiled
landscapes, wildlife, boisterous birds, solitude, and magnificent sunsets don't tickle your fancy, you may prefer a visit to Sun City.
