things to do


With cliffs to hang from, mountains to climb and downhill routes to race, why wouldn’t the adventurous traveller frequent the Central Drakensberg. Horseback is one of the best ways to see the sights, and helicopter rides and hot air ballooning over our magnificent landscape will leave you breathless. Wonder into indigenous forests to lose your mind and find your soul. Raging rivers to ride on with rafts or tubes, can best be experienced in the summer rainy seasons. Explore the uninhabited ancient landscapes that form the peaks and valleys of the Drakensberg Mountain Range.
