Meijer's Rust Activities include:
Our hiking trails start in Meiringspoort and take you to the top of the Swartberg Mountain with 360º views that will take your breath away. They can lead to natural, ancient waterfalls, pools and rare San rock art.
There are over 180 species of birds recorded on the farm. To make the most of your visit we can advise you on the best trails. Attached is a checklist that you can print to use to determine which birds you have seen.
The Little Karoo has the second largest plant biome on the planet, only to be exceeded by the tropics. There are many types of fynbos and cacti, making this area a plant lover’s paradise. It is where the geranium was originally discovered in the mid 1800’s and taken to London’s Kew Gardens for domestication. We recommend that you buy a copy of the book “Field Guide to Fynbos” by John Manning. It will help you identify the plants you discover here.
