Midmar Game Reserve
Visitors can visit the wildlife park, which features a variety of antelope and small game species. Self guided game viewing and game walks where you can get really close to the wildlife makes Midmar Nature Reserve more than just worth a visit.
Midmar hosts a number of sports events, and during weekends and peak periods bicycles, windsurfers, canoes and yachts can be hired and launch tours and sunset cruises can be booked by prior arrangement. Midmar hosts the Annual Midmar Mile which is the largest open water swimming event in the world as well as a large number of provincial and National Triathlons and sailing events. The Henley Midmar Yacht club has organised races on most weekends and has excellent facilities for the sailing faternity. The Midmar Mile is without a doubt the most well known even staged at this venue
