  • Beautiful and very well Kept. The giant Kingfisher trail is 7.2km but definitely worth it. It's a beautiful walk in the forest. You buy permits (cash only) at the entrance (R43 for adult and R22 for kids). Take anything from 3 to 4 hours and you get to a waterfall at the end. Awesomeness!
  • Pine Lake Marina is definitely one of the best holiday destinations. Staff are very professional, helpful and friendly. Very entertaining, lovely facilities, especially for those that love the outdoors. If outdoors isn't your thing you can just stay inside and chill. Warm water pools including a jacuzzi area. Tennis courts, putput, kids playing area, water sports the works! Equipped with a fully functional gym with air conditioning!
