Birding at The Knoll
The Knoll has a wonderful bird list which includes the super colourful Turacos, the White Star Robin, Bush Blackcap, Lemon Doves, five species of cuckoo and the Scaly Throated Honeyguide, to name a few. Come and see how many you can spot during your visit.
Trails in the Midlands
The Knoll has a well maintained 5km trail located within the fenced-off property. MTB Rides and trail runs start straight out of our gate and take you through routes around Hilton and Cedara. Consider using The Knoll as a base from which to explore the world-renowned Karkloof trails or Cascade MTB Park, both less than 30minutes away.

Pass by dramatic farmland and stop off to experience artisanal craft products such as beer, wine, cheese and leatherwork, to name a few. Great food and coffee culture and a blossoming Live music scene roundup some of the not to be missed experiences in this region.
