Gooderson Drakensberg Gardens Golf and Spa Resort has a number of activities for family and friends. Here are 3 reasons to visit:  


Great for outdoors

Located in Southern Drakensberg with its crisp mountain air, clear streams and azure skies is a perfect escape for travellers who want to spend time in the outdoors.According to scientists, spending time in the outdoors can make you happier, healthier and sleep better. The resort offers hiking, horse riding, canoeing, trout fishing and river rafting. Also try their zip line called “The Rinkhals” - which stretches from halfway up the Beacon Hike down to the popular Adventure Park.


Skywalker Treetop Rope Course

Skywalker Treetop Rope Course consisting of a series of rope bridges, obstacle courses, climbing nets and zip lines are suitable for all ages. The trail starts and ends in the Adventure Park, and is perfect for thrill seekers. 

18-hole golf course

A round of golf on the challenging 18-hole golf course or even a stint on the 12km custom-built mountain biking track, which passes by a dam and through the golf course as well as the lush pine forest, is also known to do the trick. 

Other fun activities available to guests include:

  • A cricket field with netted pitch and field,
  • A bow range at the Adventure Park that sees archers shooting over a bridged stream and the Jackal Buzzard Fort,
  • A raised fortress for younger adventurers. 
  • Children on the lookout for an energy release will also enjoy the kid’s pushbike track and climbing wall, including a slide and abseiling ramp.
