The Farm Adventures in Mtunzini: Fun family activities out in the countryside

The Farm Adventures

If you are also looking to beat the lockdown blues and get your family out for some fresh air, fun activities and a memorable time, a drive out into the seclusion of the countryside at The Farm Adventures in KwaGingindlovu, Mtunzini is highly recommended.

There is no better way to social distance than escaping into the isolation of the countryside – and, as their name suggests, The Farm offers plentiful of fun family adventures and activities!

Adventures for the whole family at The Farm

Because of its location in the middle of Cane Lands and Mondi Forest, at The Farm, you can enjoy Walking/Running Trails and explore the farm premises on foot. There is ample birdlife, small animals and beautiful fauna to see on your wanderings. (Birdinig tours can be arranged)

Cycling is another great option. The Farm is surrounded by some of the most idyllic roads, tracks and trails. Sections of these tracks are actually for the Famous Bell Big 5 Challenge and the Mtunzini Race in The Shade events.

Try Fishing at the Dam (by appointment)or enjoy fun at the Beach( Amatikulu or Mtunzini) from your base at the farm.

Their interactive Farm Animal Encounter & Tractor Rides are designed to get your kids – and you, to experience life on a farm while tending to various farm animals. Its an educational activity that the whole family will enjoy.

If you love Horse Riding, they also have horses where you would be led by our fantastic staff both the young and old.

For the family that loves to get the adrenalin pumping, there is a challenging Obstacle Course on the farm. It sure is the best way to resolve sibling ‘disputes’. Or you can take it to their thrilling Paintball venue where you can burn off calories with games tailored to your needs.

The Farm has been a popular choice for tailored Leadership / Team Building Camps for corporates needing a change of venue. 

Over the years, they have also hosted many Children’s Holiday Camps over school holidays. These 2–3-day camps offer children unique experiences such as sleeping in Tipi’s, cooking their own meals, tractor rides, beach visits and much more.

Thanks to Tikes and his team for looking after our precious crew and showing them such a fantastic time, can’t wait for the next one!”

About us

Actually, Home Food and Travel offers a lot more than just reviews of accommodation, restaurants, spas and adventure activities.  We also visit great destinations, receive advice from interior designers and stop to smell the roses and taste the coffee.

Our team of journalists are seasoned travels and love visiting the myriad of exciting places around South Africa.  Whether it is off the beaten track or in the heart of the top attractions of the country, we’ll be there,

Home Food and Travel advice on finding the right accommodation

So what is the right accommodation?  Well more often than not, it’s your travel budget that dictates the type of accommodation that you choose. 

Expensive is not always better.  Our team at Home Food and Travel will tell you that they have camped in areas with limited ablutions and had a wonderful holiday.  They have also spent a night in a five star hotel only to be disappointed because their expectations exceeded the experience.

The reason for your travels will also affect your choice.  A business trip requires different amenities to a beach holiday. 

Our articles, reviews and experiences can certainly help you make your decision.

Restaurants with a good mix of service, food and ambiance

To my mind a great restaurant offers three things – excellent service, great food and a wonderful ambiance.  Of these, service is the most important. 

No matter that the food is delicious and the setting delightful, poor service can ruin the occasion.  However, great service combined with mediocre meal and a plane jane restaurant can still be a pleasant night out.

We’ve eaten in restaurants that are really dirty but with incredible food and couldn’t help but give a rave review.  We’ve also hardly noticed what we ate because the setting was just amazing.

However, the best restaurants come with the best of service, food and ambiance.

Spas are the ultimate relaxation aid

How do you know when you have had a great spa experience?  The answer, of course, is when you doze off on the treatment table. 

Well that’s our theory anyway.  It also doesn’t take a grand location with enormous facilities for a spa to be really good

A small, personal spa that is owner run can result in the best massage you have ever experienced.  However, the grand spas in five star hotels offer unsurpassed facilities in an environment that just makes the stress in your shoulders and neck melt away before you even finish checking in.


You don’t have to be an adrenaline junky to enjoy an exciting experience.  In fact, what are commonly termed adventure activities usually have incredibly high safety standards and unblemished safety records.

Ziplining, bungy jumping and shark cage diving are all very safe.  It’s just that our mind tells us we are craaazzzzyyyy to be doing this.

On the road to great places of accommodation, restaurants, spas and adventure activities

If you’re driving, be safe and make use of all the wonderful farm stalls that populate South Africa’s open roads.

If you overhear somebody asking a lot of questions or see someone taking photos of empty bedrooms chances are it’s one of our Home Food and Travel team members.

We’re out looking or those great places of accommodation, restaurants, spas and adventure activities.

See you on the road!
