The original farm dwellings were renovated and converted into exquisite rondavel type accommodation. The main lodge offers 3 ensuite rooms for 6 people with a large, well equipped and functioning kitchen and sitting/dining room. Two separate rondavels offer a further 3 beds each with own kitchen and bathroom. A large outside lapa with an under-roof bar creates a good entertaining area.
One secure electric gate allows access to the fenced game farm. The owners, family and staff members all stay on the farm not far from the main lodge. The accommodation buildings are all equipped with burglar bars, security steel doors, Robo guards, fire extinguishers, external spotlights, and lockable safes for personal belongings.
Many possibilities here. Well marked hiking trails, mountain biking, game viewing, birding. Visitors will probably spend most of their time at the large entertainment area with braai lapa, under-roof bar, and even a Jacuzzi.
Flintbeck is a working, extensive cattle (Bonsmaras) and game breeding farm. Close to the main lodge are several farm and domestic animals such as chickens and geese. Guests are welcome to join, observe, and participate in any of the farm activities where possible.
