In the last two years we have been prevented from hunting on Fortress due to drought and heavy floods the following year. The recent months have been used to watch the lands and to create a thrilling hunt course with many familiar solid jumps and new challenges for hound, horse, rider and spectator. Come and enjoy a weekend in the country on Fortress and surroundings.

Directions (Travel time: 2 hours from Sandton)Take the N3 Highway towards Heidelburg. Bypass Heidelburg and travel towards Villiers. At Villiers, after you have crossed the Vaal River and before you reach the tollgates, take the turnoff Villiers South, Exit No.169. At the top of the off ramp turn right onto the R26 to Frankfort. Continue to Frankfort, passing the low cost housing on your right. After 28km turn right at the T junction (not sign posted). After 1,7km turn right to Frankfurt, just before the cement silos (the 'Frankfort' sign is very faded, so look out for a yellow sign with 'Lanmark'). The road you have turned on is called Beckwith Street. 

To Fortress Farm (20 minutes from Frankfort)
Continue on Beckwith Street, until you come to a 4-Way Stop, corner Beckworth & JJ Hadebe Streets. Turn right. The tar ends after approx 1km. Follow the gravel road for 4,6km and look for a small sign on the left hand side 'Burkhard Herrmann - FORTRESS - 8,4km'. Turn left onto this gravel road.

To the Stables
Continue straight after passing through the FORTRESS gate, passing small houses on your left-hand side and carry on straight past the feedlot. The road ends at the Farm Yard (Hague), the stable barn and grooms accommodation is directly ahead of you.
