things to do


Busy and buzzing in the holiday season, the Drakensberg is a hive of activities. The more wise generation group get to float in and out of our valley as they please to enjoy the quiet and the birds. Out of the holiday season, pensioners will find peace and tranquillity. Putter around from each coffee shop to curio shop, admire galleries or fascinating antiques. The Champagne Valley is a safe location, is easily accessible from the highway and well signed posted roads make navigating simple. The Central Drakensberg is a relaxing and leisurely paced destination for travellers to visit.
