Somabula is a private game reserve set in prime bushveld dotted around with a host of indigenous trees.
Somabula is almost equidistant from the historic diamond-mining town of Cullinan and another small village called Rayton.
There are 3km, 7km and 12km hiking and cycling trails on the farm. Walking or cycling can get you up close to the giraffe, zebra, red hartebeest, kudu, eland, blesbok and other smaller game on the farm.
For the birding fraternity, approximately 220 species of birds have been ticked in the area.
