Roll 4.5km downhill on the monster mountain scooter. This is a true mountain activity imported from Switzerland’s Alps, a first in SA!
A game drive vehicle takes you and your scooter to the top of the mountain. Game that might be spotted includes impala, bushbuck, mountain reedbucks and if you are very lucky a caracal or the genet.
After a briefing on how the non motorized eco-friendly scooter operates, your descent tour will start. The monster scooter moves forward by you kicking it forward and then the inclination of the trail will help you pick up momentum. The disc brakes make it very easy to slow down or stop.
The trail passes through meandering grassland with the picturesque view of the Drakensberg as a backdrop and through a breathtaking indigenous forest.
Should you be in the Central Drakensberg on a Wednesday why don’t you combine your midday Scootour with the Drakensberg Boys’ Choir Wednesday concert.
Anybody can go on a scooter tour, it’s as easy as riding a bike. Children over 10 years are able to go solo while children younger will need to go with an adult. Don’t forget to wear closed shoes!
