Walking in the Mountains with options of Horse riding or Mountain biking
Scenic mountain views, crystal clear rivers, easy to moderate walking trails, lunch at hotel, options of mountain biking or horse riding.
These are all in a day tour in the mountains.
A nice early departure from your venue in Durban and a not too long drive.
Your adventure will start in the Southern Drakensberg with optional Horse riding. The rides are at different ability levels and follow the crystal clear Umzimkhulu River.
Then next will start our walk again depending on ability. An easy amble along the river or a not too difficult climb up a nearby hill. This walk is 3 hours at an easy pace and puts you above the world. Fantastic views and photo opportunities.
Still need more? A short, or long, Mountain Bike trail is available with decent quality bikes to hire.
It's a great day out.
Leave Durban early to drive the 270 kms to the Drakensberg resort.
Optional activities may come first. There is an early morning beginners horse ride that follows the crystal clear rivers.
A walk will start depending on ability we have a 3 hour walk that goes up onto a high look out then along the escarpment and back to the Hotel.
Very scenic, not very difficult. We also can do a flat walk along the river, similar to the horse route.
At the hotel we can settle in for some lunch or we may have packed a picnic basket.
For those with more energy we can take a flat ride for 30 mins along the river and back again.
Then back to Durban after a good active day.
