We wish you all a splendid Freedom Day and hope you are enjoying a well-deserved break!

It started off as a chilly morning here in the mountains, but the sun is out, and it is warming up. Hopefully wherever you are the day lends to some outdoor activities with the family. Perhaps a nice walk, gentle hike or out riding bicycles with the children.

We are spoilt in the mountains with a range of activities to choose from. Fresh mountain air and the cool breeze on your shoulders. Wide open spaces to enjoy the freedom of the great outdoors.

In the Central Drakensberg there is always so much to choose from that often a weekend is not enough! We see guests coming back for more adventure each time and the mountains never disappoint. One of the biggest drawcards is the different walking and hiking options. Some that are gentle and easy for the whole family to enjoy. Others will require some degree of fitness. And then there are those that take all you have got to get to the top!

I will leave you with one of my favourite quotes. “Mountains know secrets we need to learn. That it may take time, it might be hard, but if you just hold on long enough, you will find the strength to rise up.” Tyler Knott

Enjoy Freedom Day, in fact every day! And when you get the chance, head out to the mountains, and say hello. We would love to welcome you to the Nest Hotel and have many specials to take advantage of.
