An array of activities can be enjoyed on the estate and surroundings, including canopy tours, hiking, golf, swimming, boating, trout fishing, horse riding & hot air ballooning or just relax and read a book. Free private parking is available within a double garage with remote access. The famous Drakensberg Boys Choir is also approximately 10 minutes drive for the estate. The Drakensberg borders Lesotho and runs down to the Eastern and Southern Cape. The peaks reach over 3000m in height. 'The Mountain of Dragons” is the highest peak in Southern Africa and is where the mighty Tugela River rises on the Mont-aux-Sources Plateau, cascading & forming the “Tugela Falls”. Okhahlamba is the Zulu word for “Barrier of Spears”, once home to ancient KhoiSan hunter-gatherers. The Drakensberg (derived from the Afrikaans name Drakensberg meaning 'Dragon Mountains') is the name given to the eastern portion of the Great Escarpment, which encloses the central Southern African plateau. The Great Escarpment reaches its greatest altitude in this region (2000 – 3000 m). The Drakensberg escarpment stretches for over 1000 km from the Eastern Cape Province in the South, then successively forms, in order from south to north, the border between Lesotho and the eastern Cape and the border between Lesotho and KwaZulu-Natal Province. Thereafter it forms the border between KwaZulu-Natal and the Free State, and next as the border between KwaZulu-Natal and Mpumalanga Province. It winds north, through Mpumalanga, as far as Tzaneen in Limpopo Province, from where it veers west. At Potgietersrust it is known as the Strydpoort Mountains. More
