HIKING & SAN ROCK ART
Qualified guides and custodians will take you to the age old Rock art sights in and around the Southern Drakensberg. A level of fitness is required and full and half day hikes are available at different tariffs.
A qualified guide to teach or guide you on the in’s and outs of finishing in the Drakensberg, bass or trout. To do this activity a daily fishing permit is needed. A local establishment in the town of Underberg supplies these permits. Please note that this is a summer activity.
In the Southern Drakensberg area we have three golf courses. Drakensberg Gardens, Sani Pass Hotel and the Underberg Country Club. Bookings are essential.
Birding in the Drakensberg and Lesotho is the most popular outdoor activity for visitors. The region holds a number of unique species that birders come from all over South Africa and overseas to see.
RIVER RAFTING & TUBING
Grab a tube and go down the Umzimkhulu. Summer activity as the river is extremely cold in the winter.
Around the area on Underberg there are many gravel roads with endless scenic cycle routes. There is a local shop that hires bicycle out for a day at a time.
Advance booking is essential. All the above are independent establishments and operators. Mentioned tariffs may vary at their own discretion.
Our location just off the junction leading towards the Sani Pass makes us the ideal “base camp” for a trip either with your own 4x4 vehicle or with a tour operator to the top of the pass and beyond into the kingdom of Lesotho (valid passports essential.) We’ll be happy to arrange for guided hikes to legendary rock art sites, birding or excursions on horseback. Guests who enjoy the quieter things in life may just want to relax with a good book in our lounge, stroll in our extensive gardens or try some bass fishing in our dam.
