Game Viewing The farm currently have various game species, including kudu, eland, smaller buck species, baboons, leopard and others. An extensive game re-establishment program is in process and will support the broader eco plan in due course.

Bird Watching The farm offers excellent birding, including nesting Black Eagles and the beautiful Fish Eagle. Zyndrant Guest Farm is in the upper feeding area of the Nyls Vlei floodplain and the Nyl River runs through the farm. The famous Nyl River  floodplain is located 30 km from Zyndrant Guest Farm and  Modimolle, on the old road towards Mokopong (Naboomspruit).  The Nyls Vlei is  the  largest ephemeral floodplain vlei in Southern Africa. When completely inundated, the wetland covers an area of over 8000 hectares. It is surrounded by bush veld savannah which is well protected in the Nylsvlei Nature Reserve and on adjoining private land. Nyls Vlei is one of the most important breeding areas for water birds in Southern Africa, and in wet years is transformed into a bird paradise when up to 10 000 herons (various species) and 60 000 rallids (rails and crakes) are present. At these times it holds the most significant South African breeding population of several species including Bittern, Dwarf Bittern, Little Bittern, Rufousbellied Heron, Slaty Egret, Lesser Gallinule, and Baillon's Crake.
