Schalkenbosch Estate

Situated high up on the slopes of the Witzenberg mountain range overlooking the picturesque Tulbagh valley

Schalkenbosch Estate is made up of four neighbouring farms, Schalkenbosch, Edenhof, Sagtevlei and Delta which cover an area of approximately 2500 hectares. The farming operations include a racehorse stud, cattle, orchards of apricots and prunes, fields of wheat and barley and the vineyards on Schalkenbosch itself. Quality wine is produced in the modern cellar behind the main homestead and is mostly exported to the German and Swedish markets.

Schalkenbosch SunsetA walk through the vineyards provides a magnificent view of the valley. Sunsets are often spectacular and there is frequently snow on the mountains in winter. There is ample opportunity to watch circling birds of prey such as Jackal and Steppe Buzzards and Black Eagles. A variety of sunbirds and sugar-birds, whose natural habitat is protea and fynbos, are abundant further up the mountain. The farm is home to the endangered geometric tortoise and we ask you to take care when driving to and from the farm as they are often to be seen on the road. Wild life spotted on the farm include a family of bat eared foxes, leopard, rooikat, baboons, mongoose and dassies and various small antelope including grey rhebok.
