In the most beautiful location. Within easy reach of so many places of interest that are worth visiting and supporting. Starting with Pilgrim’s Rest, and the Origstad Nature Reserve and stretching towards the Makhonjwa Geotrail, Dullstroom, Bourkes Luck and the Blyde Canyon, then off through Hazyview to the Kruger National Park. Endless adventure biking.
