The Ukhahlamba Drakensberg World Heritage Park offers wonderful views and is accessible from Highmoor Reserve 11 kilometres away. A 9 hole golf course awaits the sportsmen -low handicap players find it particularly challenging. Four holes are par 4's and the remaining 5 are par 3's. The longest hole is 300 metres and the course is designed around trout dams and the Little Mooi River. Family members are able to watch through binoculars from the chalet verandahs! Our stocked dam - Plum Dam is open all year round. We stock this dam with rainbow trout from Bushmans River Trout farm regularly and many budding trout fisherman have caught their first trout here! The Little Mooi River provides wild brown trout in the summer months. All our fishing is 100% catch and release. Should you want trout to eat we sell frozen trout along with Trout flies at our office shop. Cyclists have an opportunity to cycle on quiet rural roads and hilly tracks. A botanists delight - grassy hills and veld hiding hundreds of wild flowers and birdlife that keeps birders twitching for hours.

- What a wonderful few days we spent with you - just sent an e.mail to Marge saying she couldn't have chosen a better venue to celebrate the 75th aniversary of the Ramblers Club. At this stage of our lives driving has become less of a pleasure than it was and it's great to find somewhere not too far from home [Scottburgh] where the peace and tranquiity almost outdid the magnificent scenery. Thanks to all of you for making our short stay such a pleasureable one and we hope to visit again in the not too distant future [expect we'll wait for warmer weather, although we had marvellous weather. With kind regards and all the best Kath and Ken Arthur
