Summer is upon us in the Drakensburg and its truly is a spectacular time to visit.

Remove the noise of everyday life and come and experience fun in the sun. Exploring the best of what the mountains have to offer. You can expect lush, green, rolling mountains with vibrant colours. This is a photographers dream! The mornings are sunny and welcoming with clear blue skies, followed by cooling, afternoon thunderstorms. From the adventurer to the food connoisseur, the Drakensberg mountains have an endless supply of activities. Let’s not forget the kiddo’s.


Fun things to do

Take a step back in time at the Winterton Museum or Sandra’s se Winkel, filled with history from a by gone era. Or visit the Dragon Rock Reptile centre, it will be a favourite with the kids as they learn more about things that slide, creep and crawl. Indulge a little (or a lot) and send your tastebuds on an unforgettable journey. Chocolate Memories, our local chocolatier, has a library of chocolate to choose from and offer free tastings daily.

For fantastic fun in the sun for the whole family, Jo-Kerr Adventures, based at The Nest Hotel, offers Quad biking, paintball and Archery.
