Spending winter weekends in the Drakensberg Mountains highlights how South Africa’s warmest province doesn’t require sun sea and warm temperatures for travellers to enjoy it.
While visiting the Drakensberg, visitors are spoilt for choice when it comes to accommodation, food and activities.
The luscious Cathedral Peak Wine Estate combines a passion for farming and a love for fine wine to create the youngest and largest vineyard in KZN. Enveloped in the shadow of the central Drakensberg mountains, a traveller can treat his/her taste buds to an exquisite Pinotage and/or Merlot while looking out at snow-capped the mountains.
Cathedral Peak Wine Estate is 35 minutes away from the Dragonsview Lodge in central Drakensberg. Dragonsview Lodge is nestled in the heart of the Drakensberg mountain and exudes home-away-from-home charm.
Filled with a warm ambience and sophisticated décor as well as friendly, inviting staff, Dragonsview is a beacon of light in the midst of high mountains and is open to travellers wanting to explore the breath-taking KZN Midlands.
All Out Adventures South Africa is situated 89km away from Dragonsview Lodge and was built with the adrenalin junkie in mind. Live your wildest life while you enjoy the variety of activities that promise to get your hearts racing. Traverse the mountainous terrain on a quad bike, while enjoying the scenery and open spaces. Conquer your fear of heights as you zip line through a forest and down to earth after an exhilarating hike up to the peak. And if you’re really brave, try out the King Swing. It will be worth the heart stopping moments.
If extreme sport is not your cup of tea, a gentle horse ride can be arranged at Alpine Heath Resort. Serene horses cut through a trail along the side of the mountain while you taking in the magnificence of nature.
Create wonderful winter memories in the Drakensberg. They will remain in your hearts for the years to come.
