Trail Running in the Drakensberg

Step outside, let your takkies hit the turf, and try our 5km trail run. Our Thrombosis Gorge Trail skirts the Umzimkulu River most of the way and is stunningly scenic. It is a fairly easy gradient, apart from one rather brutal uphill. Once you reach the summit though, the bird’s eye view of the gorge makes it worth the climb! Birdlife and wildflowers abound on this fantastic trail run through the Underberg.


Thrombosis Rock Pools

Have you ever submerged yourself in a mountain pool? The summer rains have not yet arrived in earnest which means the water is crystal clear and the rock pools in the gorge are the perfect level for swimming. The gorge is also home to rare indigenous plant life nestled in the crevices of this magical rocky place. Pack a picnic and spend the day swimming, eating and enjoying nature with your family in the Drakensberg.


Spa Treatments

In addition to our Black Friday Sale on your accommodation, we are also offering 10% off all massages for the month of November. We have a private deck overlooking the river waiting to welcome you for a massage of your choice while you listen to the river bubbling by. You will return home with renewed energy to get you through the silly season.


Trout Fishing

The Umzimkulu River has bounced back following the drought. It was a case of the survival of the fittest and the survivors are in prime condition! Our strictly catch and release policy means stocked waters and you can enjoy hours of fishing right on your doorstep.



So what are you waiting for? Contact us today and take advantage of our Black Friday Sale for your last minute getaway to the Drakensberg this November!
