Description EDIT
The hike takes you through indigenous forest or along steep mountain tracks on the farm Glen Avon. There is a spectacular waterfall, which plunges 80 m into a riverine-forested valley where sneezewood and cabbage trees grow. The waterfall and the kloof have been declared the Glen Avon Falls Natural Heritage Site (No 71). Bird watchers could identify 235 species of birds, ranging from small sunbirds to birds of prey and an occasional sighting of the rare Cape Vulture. Large game includes kudu, bushbuck, duiker and mountain reedbuck.

Directions: Take the R63 between Cookhouse and Somerset East and turn off 17 km east of the town.

A two bed roomed, 4-bed, fully furnished, self-catering guest lodge. Meals are available on request. Glen Avon Falls is open throughout the year for farm activities, trout fishing, swimming, canoeing, bird watching, controlled bushbuck hunting in season and hiking. Day outings with a 4x4 can be arranged at an extra charge.
