Bring your own bikes for rides of a lifetime - The spectacular mountainous terrain of the Southern Drakensberg is the perfect setting for awesome guided trails that provide fun for the whole family. Steep mountain tracks (up to 2750m) and challenging river crossings test your technical riding skills. Trails are guided and range from easy to difficult and technically challenging. Along the way there is always time to admire the breath-taking views, cool off in the mountain streams and roost each other in the muddy riverbed!
Chris assesses your ability and tailors the trail accordingly. Chris has lived his life in the area and is an experienced enduro rider - Fun loving and knowledgeable, Chris makes the most of your trail experience, taking you to the best places in the area. Interaction with the locals is his specialty, adding value to your trail - whether it is lunch at a local shebeen or up at Tiffindell, you experience life as we live it.
Tskholo Mojaki has grown up on the farm with Chris. He is young, enthusiastic & extremely knowledgeable of the area. He converses in English, Xhosa & Sesotho. His specialty is nature & Tskholo has completed his tour-guiding course as a site guide. His knowledge of the wildflowers, birds & animals is very broad and he especially enjoys sharing his cultural background with you on every trip you take together.
The area is becoming well known for excellent riding - whether training for The Roof, or enjoying a fun day with the family. Chris has guided riding greats such as Giovanni Sala (7 times World Enduro Champion), Alfie Cox (9 times Roof of Africa Champion), Daryl Curtis & Riaan van Niekerk. We hosted the first ever KTM Rallye Raid in October 2007 here, which Chris helped Red Cherry Adventures organise. Chris was the route co-ordinator and set out the routes, covering hundreds of kilometres in the Barkly East, Rhodes, Maclear and Lady Grey districts.
