The opening of schools has been delayed and we understand that parents are going a little stir-crazy. That is why we have introduced a “Parents Sanity Special” from now until the end of February 2021. Grab your kids and head out to the great outdoors where you can enjoy some fresh air, freedom and quality time with the family before real life sets in.

As part of the Parents Sanity Special, all parents travelling with at least one school age child (ages 7 to 17), booking for a minimum two-night stay at Treks, Trips and Trails will be eligible to a 20% accommodation discount. What that means is that our Bahati Tree Lodge will cost just R1360 (normally R1700) and Bergvlei Cottage R1600.00 (normally R2000) per night for the unit on a self-catering basis.

Anyone else – including parents needing an escape alone – will get a 15% discount over the same period!

If you are not yet convinced, check out our list below of some amazing family activities in the Drakensberg:

Drakensberg quad biking and Scootouring

Up for an adventure? There are a variety of amazing experiences where you can get the adrenaline pumping! Four Rivers Adventures offers quad biking for kids and adults of any age. On offer is a 850m big track and a 150m small track which is ideal for families with small kids. For those that already know how to ride, they also offer a number of different quad trails in the surrounding area.

For a non-motorized adventure, take the family to Scootours Drakensberg. Enjoy a downhill mountain experience on eco-friendly scooters as you enjoy a different side of the Drakensberg. Kids from four years old can ride with their parents as a passenger while kids from nine years old can ride their own scooter.

Drakensberg horse riding

As Treks, Trips and Trails is located in the Cathkin Peak area of the Drakensberg we have access to a a vast area of natural beauty, with the Drakensberg Mountains the perfect backdrop for all your adventures. The horse riding experiences here can be tailored to your experience and your family. Opt for a simple pony ride for the little ones or a full day mountain trail for the more experienced!

Relax by the pool

Here at Treks, Trips and Trails we have a large rock-style pool for you and your family to enjoy. With only two self-catering units on the property you are guaranteed privacy while you cool off from the summer heat. Relax in the pool and enjoy the views, followed by a braai in your private Boma or a sundowner on the deck overlooking the dam.

Dragon Rock Reptile Centre

The Dragon Rock Reptile Centre is an educational reptile and nature centre located just 15 minutes from us in the heart of the beautiful Drakensberg. Here your children can get up close and personal with a range of repitels while learning more about the environment around them. So even on holiday and with schools closed, you can rest easy knowing you are furthering their education!

Fun on the dam

The dam in front of Treks, Trips, and Trails is now overflowing – the first time in 4 years! Cayley Leap Adventures, which is located just 1km up the road from us, have a variety of ‘water borne’ activities you can enjoy, in the form of paddle-boats and canoes for hire. They also organize barge cruises, do quad out rides, and have a go-kart track, so there is something to keep the entire family entertained!
