"Riding mountain bikes past zebras is the right way to start the day" at this rehabilitated farmstead. Light-filled contemporary rooms have outdoor showers. Meals at Makana draw from native fynbos herbs and local meat. Affable staff "offer great insight" into the native culture and history—"they elevate the spirit." The 18,500-acre reserve is home to more than 130 tribal rock art sites.
