Always magical, clean fresh air - and so many places to visit - from historical sites, to coffee shops and country markets and of course hiking and birding trails. The snow this past weekend was an added bonus.

Things to do

Whilst holidaying in the Drakensberg area there are a multitude of activities for the

family, adventurous hikers or ambitious mountain bikers to partake in. The Falcon Ridge Bird of Prey Centre is located in Champagne Valley and is a great day out for the whole family. There are bird shows at 10:30am every day, excepting Fridays when the centre is closed for the day.

There are many fantastic hiking trails ranging from an outdoor stroll to more physically challenging hikes. Ensure that you are aware of the level of difficulty and follow proper safety precautions before attempting any of these walks.

Mountain biking is catered for with a variety of MTB tracks, testing all cyclists from novice to expert. Sani Spoors offers some great single tracks, after purchasing a permit at the office before setting off. Their trails range from 3km to 15km and can be used by runners as well.

Dragon Rock Reptile centre is also found Champagne Valley and comes highly recommended for families and those wanting to be taken out of their ‘comfort zone’. Visitors to the centre will be allowed to hold various reptiles whilst learning about their value in our environment.

The Drakensberg Canopy Tour is a must if you are wanting to see the stunning views on offer from the tree tops in Blue Grotto Forest. Follow a zip-line through the forest, resting at tree and cliff platforms along the way.
