The drakensberg …

What a privilege to spend easter with divine friends in the pristine drakensberg mountains at Cobham near Underberg.

“Die heuwels fantasties”.

Easter camping on the riverside breathing in the fresh air up there, diving into streams of clear fresh water. Children playing, friending new friendies. Braais and “braai-pie” – thanks Suzette – watched your you tube clip and was indeed a crowd pleaser and so easy.

What a privilege.

Mountain splendour splendour

For our 5th wedding anniversary we galavanted to Mountain Splendour – a wonderful place in the Drakensberg mountains where one can “glamp”. Glamping is a wonderful way to camp with children. Ours are 2 and 4. The tent is set up for you with all you need, including electric blankets ! What bliss and shear luxury.

The setting is arguably one of the most breathtaking in terms of mountain splendour. Surrounded by natural beauty with mountain biking/running trails to your heart’s content. For the children there is a playground that rivels the best of them full of wonderful swings, clambering things and even a caravan to play in. My children would have slept in the playground if we had let them. Possibly the only drawback being that they just wanted to be there all the time!

We had a wonderful time and will certainly be back.

Mountain splendour, splendour!

Mountain splendour, splendour!
