    What a show, totally unexpected and a must see. This sanctuary rehabilitates birds of prey. While the show is underway, wild birds join in littering the sky. Eagles, vultures and falcons. A real treat. U can experience holding the birds 🦅.
    A fantastic experience for the entire family.

    Gorgeous area but we were highjacked in a dirt road so by then we didn't see the beauty of it anymore...

    Always a pleasure to attend their Wednesday afternoon concerts. Been doing this for many years, have brought friends and family from far and wide. If you’re in the area or not, make a special trip to the Champagne Valley, book a night or two midweek and get tickets to the Wednesday afternoon concert. Their concert dates are on their website. Book through webtickets or the school directly. Avoid Viagogo - they’re a scam.

    We did the Tugela Falls/Amphitheatre hike in November 2022. We were all reasonably fit, and although the hike is long, the paths are not as difficult to walk as we expected. The chain ladder can be difficult if you are scared of heights or not reasonably fit and healthy, but what a thrill if you do like heights!

    The views are simply breathtaking, and you will need to stop often just to admire and take photos. The altitude can be difficult in the beginning, particularly if you are someone who hasn't really been in high altitudes, you may find yourself short of breath in the beginning, but you do adjust. The walk across the plateau on the top is easy. The hike took us about 8 hours, but we did stop frequently to snack and enjoy our surroundings. We also spent about an hour sitting at the falls and soaking our feet in the crisp water. This hike has been on my bucket list for a very long time, and I am so stoked to have done it! It was even better than I expected. Nothing beats the Drakensberg!

    Note: Be careful to check the weather as storms come up quickly in the Berg and you would not want to be up there with lightning. It would also not be advisable to hike in poor visibility conditions, especially in winter where it can get dangerously cold up there. We were lucky to have perfect weather the whole hike. We stayed at Kiara Lodge just outside the Golden Gates park and it only took less than an hour to drive to the beginning of the hike at Witieshoek Mountain Lodge. You should contact them beforehand as they will need to take you in a 4x4 to the beginning of the hike at Sentinal carpark. If you go up early, you can also pay the park entrance fee there. I don't advise trying to drive there on your own, even if you own a 4X4. We saw people destroying their engine on that road, it's realllly bad.

    The number supplied is for Witieshoek's whatsapp.

    Situated in a lovely spot with great views. The owner was very friendly and passionate about his animals. Very casual and pleasant experience!

    Enjoyed the food at the restaurant and the wine tasting. The cheese platter was delicious. My only suggestion is that management employ more staff during peak periods as there was only one person serving all guests at the wine tasting

    We visited this museum many years ago and we were so glad we went back. It is still very well curated and cared for. Well worth the visit!

    My wife and I stopped here for lunch. Had the tasting tray of beers and we ordered a “build-your-own” platter where you can make your selection from ciabatta bread, various cold meats, cheeses, onion marmalade, fig preserve, pickles, biltong, etc. to create your custom board of eats. It was an excellent lunch and a great atmosphere sitting outside. We can certainly recommend a stop here.

    Had a nice cup of tea when we arrived. Weather was a bit cold but the experience was still lovely. Lots of history behind the mission. The waterfall is pretty, the Mill is very interesting to hear how it works. The church is beautiful. Our guide was very friendly and answered all the questions we had along the way.
