Upcoming Activities and Events in the Drakensberg Mountains

Posted on Tue September 5, 2017.

Life in the city and the hustle and bustle of everyday life can get a bit much for most of us after a while. Therefore the appeal of taking a holiday and some time off is huge, taking a trip with a fun activity or event to attend is an added bonus. A holiday amongst the majestic Drakensberg Mountains is already a treat but its now time to take advantage of all the sport and cultural events on offer too. With the change of seasons from Summer to Autumn/Winter comes a slight variation in the activities on offer but overall this magical holiday destination is an all round win all-year round.

We’ve collected a small list of activities for you to choose from for the next few months in the Drakensberg Mountains. Whether you’re the healthy type and want to spend your free time hiking or mountain biking or you’re simply looking for a chilled recreational activity such as a concert or market to unwind and relax outside of the city…there will definitely be something here for you and your family to enjoy together.
