The Oxpecker Trail Run and more…
As we head into the best time of the year in the Drakensberg, it is not hard to understand why. Apart from the vibrant Autumn colours, the weather is perfect for outdoor activities!
May is around the corner and it is jam-packed with events, including Ride the Berg and The Oxpecker Trail Run. The latter has become so popular, they now host 3 different events. The Yellow-Billed Oxpecker, The Red-billed Oxpecker, and the African Oxpecker. For more information on the trail runs please check out their website www.oxpecker.co.za . It is an experience you do not want to miss!
For avid mountain bikers, Cathkin Trails is currently on hold as some bridges require repairs after the recent floods. Some trails are accessible through the forest however no trails can currently cross the rivers. We update our website regularly with up-to-date events and local activities. Please make sure you stay in touch to keep up to date with all the Central Drakensberg has to offer.
