Using Zoutpanputs as your base there are a variety of activities on offer…
Hunting – The keen hunter will have the time of his life with a selection of game available. It includes Springbok, Oryx (Gemsbok), Blue wildebeest (gnu), Sable bulls an Red hartebeest.
Bow Hunting – The farm also caters for bow hunting with three hides, all within 20 meters of water. A hide accommodates two people. Hunting is seasonal and bookings are essential, preferably well in advance. Prices are on request and can vary according to availability.
Birdwatching – More than 50 bird species has been identified at Zoutpanputs. The Kalahari is a birder’s delight and the farm is no exception. The inquisitive Crimson-breasted Shrike is sure to surprise you with your early morning coffee. Keep a look-out for the Namaqua Sandgrouse (Kelkiewyn), the Lilac-breasted Roller (troupant), Kori Bustard (Gompou), Vultures and the very active Southern Yellow-billed Hornbill (Neushoringvoël)
Photography – The many moods of nature offers special opportunities for photographers in this vast land. The interesting spoor of a millipede in the sand, a Lilac Breasted Roller (troupant) in flight, oryx cooling themselves on a dune or the setting sun painting the landscape in many hues of pink and blue are all challenging in their simplicity. A hike to the top of a dune is a must for never-ending views of the landscape, especially at dawn and dusk.
Game drives – Game drives are available on request.
In and around the camp – The Kalahari can also be experienced from the back of a camel with guided rides around the rest area on offer. A special treat is getting to know the meerkat families from the comfort of a deck chair on the stoep.
In the area – Other attractions in the area is a visit to salt works on one of the neighbouring farms. Here guests can enjoy a float in the naturally buoyant salt water.
