The Polar bear is a charity event where swimmers get together and swim through the San River river which is normally around 8 degrees celsius.

The event started back in 1995 with only 12 swimmers brave enough to attempt the freezing cold water.

Today the event is still being hosted annually at the end of June with more than 400 swimmers.

The next event is scheduled for 29 June 2019. We hope to see you there as well!

The Sand River borders Bundu Camp and contains carp, barber and bass. The riverbank offers some nice big trees to sit underneath and to enjoy the fishing. Please remember to bring the following: hat, sun screen, mosquito spray and most importantly a cooler with some beverages.


You are welcome to hike around the farm and observe the absolute beauty of nature.
