The exciting zipline at the Drakensberg Gardens Golf and Spa Resort.

Durban - Gooderson Drakensberg Gardens Golf and Spa Resort, known for its views of the southern Drakensberg, crisp mountain air, clear streams and blue skies, is a haven for outdoor enthusiasts.

Set on a 860-acre World Heritage site it offers several restaurants and activities for the whole family, ranging from hiking, horse riding, canoeing, trout fishing, bowls, adventure golf, swimming pools, hot pools and snooker, to the animal farm.

The resort also has an 18-hole golf course, and a 20km mountain biking track for all levels.

There’s also a longer track for fitter riders. Bikes are available from the hotel reception.

New additions include a zipline called The Rinkhals, a cricket field with netted pitch and field, BMX track, archery range, and the Jackal Buzzard Fort, a raised fortress for the younger explorers.

A kid’s water park, complete with heated pool and slides, is under construction, as is a kid’s pushbike track and a climbing wall with a slide and abseiling ramp.
