It’s all happening in the mountains! Adventure in the Central Drakensberg is closer than you think!

For those willing to brave the cold, snow has started falling and we expect more snowfall until Thursday this week. But be warned, bring plenty of warm clothes, scarves, beanies, and gloves as temperatures are set to drop to zero degrees.

Then, in case you missed it, Oxpecker 2021 has just wrapped up for this year. So, if you missed out this time, there is always next year. It is one of South Africa’s popular trail running events that take place in the Central Drakensberg.

We are proud to say that 3 team members from the Nest Hotel took part in Oxpecker 2021. They all recall an amazing experience of fun, adventure, and magnificent scenery. If this sounds like something you want to add to your adventure list, make sure you don’t miss out next year!

The Central Drakensberg is the adventure hub of the Drakensberg, with so much on offer. There is a host of activities to choose from and plenty to keep you entertained. In fact, we have Berg & Bush coming up later this month. If you are an avid mountain biker then this event is for you. Should you prefer something a little laid-back where you can go at your own speed, Cathkin Trails may be the answer. Popular amongst trail runners and mountain bikers, discover the back roads and off-roads of the Cathkin Valley.

When you have had your fun, filled up on the thrill of the adventure, and are feeling somewhat weary. Indulge at The Revive Spa Massage and Beauty Clinic at the Nest Hotel! It is the ultimate treat after your body has worked so hard, and promises pure relaxation.

I will leave you with one of my favourite quotes, “Jobs fill your pockets, but adventure fills your soul” – Jaime Lyn Beatty.
