We hope that everyone had a relaxing long weekend! We had so many activities on our property, it was exciting to see so many faces (and wine). Thank you for Leipzig Wines and Peter Falke Wines for 2 great Wine Tasting evenings and SAB for the great Potjie Kos on Sunday! ⠀
The friendly faces athletes bumped into while slogging through the rainy days of this year's X-Berg Challenge definitely brightened up the way! The paragliders have to carry their gear the length of the race come rain or shine - Ben Arnold was definitely dreaming of sunshine and clear skies as he made his way across the mountains from Busingatha to Mnweni.
Newcomer to the X-Berg Challenge Wesley Antonites takes a moment to enjoy the view on his way up past the Sentinel to the Chain Ladders. Wesley had an incredible race - he was the first trail runner to cross the finish line in the Extreme Race and placed 3rd overall!
You don't have to be 'grownup' to experience the rush of ziplining on our forest highway: the Canopy Tour experience is open for ages 7 to 70 years old but we have had guests as young as 5 years old and older than 90 #unzipAdventure !
To 'fly' our system you need to fit comfortably in a harness and be physically fit enough to conquer the 1km hike out at the end. Come leap into your very own outdoor action 'movie' - with you as the star of the show ⭐️
2019 is the year of the getaway.
Take some time to take some time out in the berg. Call us on 036 438 8500 for bookings and enquiries. #travel#drakensberg#kwazulunatal

that before time,
there was nothing,
save for a void,
a sphere of spirit
that knew no limit;
it did not have a name.
This one spirit split
broke up, spread,
to change, to
create our world,
and all that’s here.
This one spirit
known to us as love
stays the same, to
invade all it made,
all that visit, especially
those that stay.
Now if you leave,
yearn, you’ll hunger
have that longing
- Bob Blackwell

The Pearly Gates - If I could wander the Drakensberg escarpment for eternity once my time on earth has run out, I would certainly believe I have reached heaven.
