Saamrus offers a dream getaway for hikers, nature lovers, bird watchers and nature photographers. If you just want a relaxing stroll along the river or rather prefer a more adventurous hike for 3 hours or more, both can be done at Saamrus. Dogs are welcome to walk with you. Your canine companion will experience more space and exciting smells than he/she ever dreamed possible!!
Easy walks/strolls along the river or in the bush along the hill side:
Take a casual stroll down to the river and enjoy the tranquillity and the gentle sounds of water flowing. The steps and bridges were built by our dedicated staff to make the river walk accessible and enjoyable even in wet weather. Find a secluded spot to picnic down by the river. Take the bush path along the side of the hill. Enjoy the indigenous trees, aloes and veld grass and take a break under a shady tree. (Please avoid walking on the incoming road towards the neighbours. We are trying to give them some peace and quiet too).
Longer walks/hikes on the plateau (2 – 8 km):
If you feel fit and energetic, you can walk up to 8km by walking in the paths on the plateau. The lovely views and silence with bring you much needed relaxation and connection with nature. You can walk on the grassy plateau with lovely wide open views and enough trees to rest and picnic in the shade, walk down the kloof with lots of indigenous shade trees or go and look at the remains of Tswana Settlements from the 1800’s. If you stay over for a few days, there is enough routes to take to walk a different route every day.
Remember to bring along comfortable walking shoes, a sun hat and water bottle as well as water for your dog/s. Dogs must be treated for ticks before visiting Saamrus, as they will pick up ticks when walking in the veld.
