Welcome to St Fort where you will experience Eastern Free State hospitality at its finest. The farm is situated five kms from picturesque Clarens, on 2,200 Ha of land in a stunning setting surrounded by the foothills of the Maluti Mountains. It is the home of the famous Mushroom Rock.

For those who love to explore, St Fort offers four expertly laid out hiking trails, namely the two-day Cannibal Hiking Trail which caters for the keen and more adventurous hiker. It includes a night spent in a cave, complete with historic rock art. For a brisk morning or afternoon walk, we offer three shorter trails. All these trails take you through differing landscapes, from breathtaking mountain views, overhang caves, to river walks with numerous picnic spots, forest ambles and boulder hopping in and along gorges. The trails are well marked and provide all the amenities a hiker demands, from comfortable bedding, ablution with flush toilets and hot showers as well as a reed enclosure with braai facilities.
Other activities include:
Bird watching. At least 50 different species of birds have been spotted on the farm.
Cycling. Bring your own bike and enjoy the freedom of riding around on the farm.
Walks. Both gentle and more challenging hikes
