Visit the Alpacas
Why you should visit: Blue Hippo Farm is the home to a herd of these fluffy, social creatures. The farm offers tours and unique, felted products for purchase.
How much does it cost: The Alpaca tours cost R120 per person and bookings are essential.
Take a Horse Cart ride
Why you should experience it: A rather fun and quaint activity, Horse Cart rides are Greyton’s version of New York’s carriage rides. Galloping through the quiet, tree-lined streets on donkey-drawn carts on Saturday mornings has become a popular activity for adults and kids alike.
