An exciting alternative to walking, running and cycling is exploring the estate on Eco-riders. The Sports & Leisure centre now offers guided tours.
Fancourt has four beautiful mountain facing tennis courts. Two of the four courts are floodlit to enjoy some evening play.
Big mouth black bass exist in abundance in the lakes, rivers and fishing dams throughout the Fancourt estate. This freshwater species is popular amongst fishing enthusiasts and presents plenty of opportunity for novice and experienced anglers. Fishing rods and tackle are for hire for R100 per set and this sport can be enjoyed on the resort on a catch and release basis.

Trails vary in difficulty and distance from 8-18km, providing a broad spectrum of tracks for casual walkers and trail runners. The resort itself encompasses 2.5km, 5km and 10km paved trails which are fit for walking or jogging.

Three different grades of mountain bicycles are available to hire from Fancourt’s Leisure Centre, ranging from R100 to R300 per half-day trip.
