What to do with your kids in the Drakensberg - 4aKid

The Drakensberg is a beautiful place to visit with your entire family!

Mountains and views that take your breath away and leave you in awe of the beautiful nature that surrounds you in the Drakensberg. So what is there to keep everyone entertained during your visit? We have put together a list of activities to keep your whole family entertained and busy for your entire stay (unless you plan to stay there indefinitely). 

Fly Fishing at Royal NataI Park

Most men and boys will love this activity although some women and girls also enjoy fishing. Here you can do some trout fishing or if you don't like fishing, you can go for a swim instead! Another thing you can do other than enjoying the view is to try and look for Mountain Reedbucks and Grey Rhebucks that can be spotted in the area. 

Drakensberg Ballooning

Unless anyone in your household has a fear of heights, this is a great way to enjoy a panoramic and scenic view of the whole Kwazulu-Natal. These hot air balloon flights are worth every second.

They have different ride level options available, from kids and novice riders to adults and experienced riders. Do yourself and your family a favour and visit the resort and enjoy the ride! 

Drakensberg Canopy Tour

Welcome to Africa's very first elevated rock face walkway! They have a mix of cliff face and treetop platforms with cable slides over the forest up to 60m high! You can glide between the platforms and enjoy the view of the majestic Drakensberg, waterfalls, cascading streams and the ancient indigenous forest. Booking is essential as they are only open on selected days. And although there is no specific age restrictions, the recommended age to do this is between 7 and 70 years of age.

There is a vast amount of local hikes with varying levels of ease. Among others some of these hikes include but are not limited to Rainbow Gorge (easy-moderate), Sugar Loaf (moderate), Giant's Cup Trail (strenuous) and Amphitheater Hike (strenuous). To find out more details on these or other trails, you can contact local guides to help you find the right hike for you and your family. 

Farmers’ Lawn Market

Everyone enjoys a day at a local market. There is quite a lot of things to enjoy doing with your family. Enjoy the haystacks, coffee, beer, snacks, live music and curios available at different stalls. Do note that this is not a farmer's market solely for farmers to sell their produce as some may think. It is just a regular local market with stalls that have different products available.
