THE DASKOP GAMELIFE EXPERIENCE A Daskop game drive will reveal the beauty of an authentic Free State landscape to delight your senses…
Start your day off with a "lekker" early morning cup of coffee and watch the sun rise; and then when the day is nearly done, share sundowners with us and enjoy the sunset on a very special day.
A day where you enjoyed some of the many experiences Daskop has to offer, made priceless when shared with family and friends! What makes Daskop special is that every time you visit us, your experience is unique.. Depending on the time of the year that you visit us, green grasslands give way to the yellows of autumn; you can feel the chilly winter air on your cheeks before sunrise; and you can witness the rebirth of the farm as the first summer rains fall, and with it the exciting arrival of "baby" season. There is no time like NOW TIME to visit Daskop because there is always something new and exciting happening... MAKE A RESERVATION

BREEDING VENTURE

Share in our new cattle breeding venture. Meet our Black Angus and Simbra cows who are breeding with the Italian Chianinia. Our resident bull, “574”, weighs in the region of a ton depending on the time of year and is a sight not to be missed. For those who are more “hands on”, join in the fun and experience of feeding, herding or weighing the animals while enjoying the calves up close.
OUR OSTRICHES FLOURISH!
Share in the many ostrich "raising" stories, experiences and lessons learned that started in 2014. While those raised in 2014 added to the numbers on the farm, those hand-raised in 2015 never failed to amuse and entertain. Experience these strange yet interesting creatures up close while they investigate you for anything of interest that can and will be swallowed by them.
