What to Bring

Things to remember when visiting The Feathered Nest

Here are some of the most important items to consider bringing with you should you visit the farm. This list also provides you with a sneak preview of what else we have set up, under "communications", so that you are best prepared.


  • Light cotton shirts & shorts / pants for daytime
  • Lightweight but warm jacket for cool evenings
  • Sun hat with wide brim
  • Sun glasses
  • Old jeans and shirt for riding the quads
  • Comfortable shoes / hiking boots
  • Warm clothing for winter evenings
  • Swimming costume


  • Binoculars (optional for when on walks)
  • Insect repellent spray is provided but if you have a preferred brand, bring that
  • Sun block or tanning lotion (also for when riding the quads)
  • Writing and reading materials (although we have a small library of novels)


  • Cell phone reception is fair, for the four cell-phone service providers;
  • Visitors can be reached through our cell phones
  • MTN and Vodacom signals are best (we have an MTN booster)
  • E-mail & incoming fax facilities are available upon request
  • Please note we have no land-line


Be prepared for a relaxing getaway. Time is your own and there is certainly no rushing around from one activity to another keeping to a tight schedule.
