Garden Route Trails, Drakensberg Treks

Hi All,

What a stunning winter we've been having! Sunshine down on the Garden Route and crisp clear sunny days in the Drakensberg, well at least until last week... a bit of a cold front came in and our last Thabana Ntlenyana Trek was in the snow. The photo's from treks below were taken 5 days apart. South Africa's great for diversity!

Got a bit of time, pop onto our facebook site to view more awesome pics from our recent treks and trails 

Winter may be the season to curl up with the cat and a cup of cocoa, but is's great fun to get out and explore in the crisp invigorating air, and if you just can't drag yourself away from the fire, plan for a Spring time come back.
