Venue: Dragon Peaks Mountain Resort. The resort is situated in Champagne Valley (R600) next to the Drakensberg Boys Choir School, 28kms from Winterton. The resort is also conveniently located a short drive away from the Monks Cowl KZN Wildlife Park which is close to the Sterkspruit River, and lies beneath Sterkhorn and Cathkin Peak.
The site has all facilities one could ask for with hot water, washing up areas and ablution facilities. There is also a bar, restaurant, swimming pool and stables. See http://www.dragonpeaks.com
Please bring: Your own everything, including firewood and charcoal/gas for the Friday night. On Saturday night there will be a communal braai - firewood and charcoal will be sponsored by the MBC.
Activities: There are a host of hikes in this exquisite Berg territory both from the resort itself and then nearby Monks Cowl Park. These include short walks to nearby peaks and viewpoints and possibly even a bracing hike up Sterkhorn. These are voluntary and up for discussion on the day with the volunteer Leaders.
Cost: The cost of accommodation is R130pp/pn for adults (ie: R260pp for the weekend). Children under 16 years of age and pensioners are half price. Please note that camping payments will be coordinated by the MBC to avoid any duplication. Should you require accommodation other than camping this should be booked directly with the resort.
Only members who RSVP ahead of time will be added to the attendees list. Please feel free to bring along friends and family but note that they also have to RSVP. This is to try and avoid unnecessary outlay for non-arrivals.
We look forward to hearing from you all soon!
