Fear Factor
Value for money

Lots of mid-weekers. Great specials all year round.
how do I get there?
what should i wear?
Suitable clothing for quadding, horse riding and hiking would be long pants and closed shoes. Bring very warm clothes for those cold winter months (May to October). Bikinis in June are not required!
time period
Stay as long as you like! You will find that you have such a good time that you may want to extend your stay with us. So just pack in a few days’ extra clothing just in case.
vital information
We are in a Malaria free zone, but we still have mosquitos, so bring insect repellant. Also a good idea to bring sunscreen for those scorching summer months.
Four magnificent seasons. Beautiful springs, warm summers, mild autumns and cold winters.
We can accommodate up to 150 quadders and horse riders, 20 microlights and 50 for the 4x4’s. When your body aches from all the action we welcome you to our Balanced Health Wellness Centre for rejuvenation.
Spectators are very welcome. Come along and witness the fun and adventure. Just be warned that you may feel tempted to get involved!
It is advisable to book about 4 weeks in advance to avoid disappointment.
Other Info
On the Lesotho Border. Great Lesotho excursions and quad safaris.

Nestled in the farmlands of the Brandwater basin near Clarens in the Eastern Free State, Shumba Valley offers lovers of the great outdoors a fantastic variety of adventures. Set in spectacular mountains with the Rooiberg on the west side, the Witteberg on the north and the majestic Malutis, the panoramic view across our north eastern and southern side, the landscape is awesome. We offer many other activities to compliment our extreme adventures. Our mission is to ensure that all family members can have as much fun as possible. Holidays are for fun, relaxation, variety and comfort. We at Shumba make sure you have the “cherry on the top” too, for we love to spoil our guests. Personal service and attention to your needs is our speciality.

On the farm we offer a variety of accommodation. Top class comfort in our two luxury self-catering cottages. One 8 sleeper and one 6 sleeper. Two comfortable self-catering caravans that are fully equipped, a small campsite catering for 20 people, and our homely, comfortable B&B accomodation for 16 people. Inside the main lodge is a comfortable lounge with DSTV, a lovely sunny dining room and a "conversation piece" pub. The garden is a haven for bird life and a relaxing spot to while away the day with a good book. This is home to a very unique herd of horses, specially trained to nurture and delight even the most fearful of riders. The horses are calm and relaxed with people. They enjoy watching the aircraft fly in, and land, delight in the thrills and spills of the quadding and off road activity, but prefer to offer wonderful rides for those who want to be with them!Fishing on the farm and nearby is great in the summer months. Bream, bass, trout, and yellows can be caught, along with the inevitable barble!

One of our specialities. Carefully planned excursions take bikers on trails with loads of variety. Some trips are for beginners and others for those who like to be challenged. And we can combine the trail for the whole family. We offer both guided and unguided trips. Day trips range from 30km to 150km. Our quadding safaris range from 2 nights to 6 nights away from the farm in the mountains, with rustic accomodation, and tons of fun!Our snow quad trips into Lesotho are spectacular. One can book to participate with a large group on an annual family excursion in June or one can book on smaller, more intimate excursions, where a maximum of 20 riders are given the opportunity to spend more time with the village people off the beaten track. Shumba offers a number of specialised trips where the riding is exclusive to Shumba visitors only.All quadding excursions done with Shumba are for residents only and are planned to limit environmental pollution wherever possible. Quad hire is for residents only. Our farm track is carefully laid out for all to use and enjoy with plenty of challenges. Own quads and off road bikes welcome. This is 4x4 and quadding paradise. The trails are self-drive.

Take your mind off the hustle and bustle of city life and ride off into the sunset! Horse riding is one of the best mediums of relaxation, especially when our horses love giving you this relaxation. Our horses are trained to offer riders of all levels a wonderful, safe and comfortable ride in the mountains, along rivers and over rolling farmlands. All our horses are in wonderful condition, and are a special part of the Shumba Valley Family, anda are trained to be obedient with all levels of riders. Our saddles are general purpose and the equipment of the highest quality. Book for hour rides, champagne breakfast rides, sunset rides, all day rides, half-day rides or 2-10 day riding safaris. We also offer moonlight rides and night walks for riders and non-riders. The rides are therapeutic and offer that human-horse bond. Ski Safari's are also available seasonally!


Our airstrips are picturesque and 650metres in length. The Ficksburg strip is close by and is a lovely tarmac strip about 2km long and with all the modern necessities. Once landed, pilots and crew are shown to their accomodation just metres away from their parked aircraft. This offers pilots a unique opportunity of making the most of their flying time.
In the spring, a flight over the Rooiberg at 6:30am is a memorable experience. A flight of 2hours, back for breakfast, a day of relaxing and exploring the area, another evening flight, and then a wonderful braai under the stars, chattin to fellow pilots and crew - this is living!Corporate packages, small company functions and unusual birthday or anniversary packages are also offered. Each one can be tailor made for your requirements.

The fun starts here!
