Location description from owner

The KwaZulu-Natal region

This area is a farming area predominantly in Dairy. Much of the work in this area is for support of Dairy farmers.

Weather is winter is warm during the day with almost no rain. The nights are cold with regular frost in the early mornings. Summer is a very busy time on the farms, as it is also the rainfall season with much grass and crop harvesting.

Summers are long hot days (no humidity) and cool evenings. Many of the northern hemisphere birds migrate to this area for our summer, Amur falcons, crowned cranes and swallows are in abundance during summer.

There are local transport companies who provide a service up Sani Pass, to the highest pub in Africa, in Lesotho. This trip can be arranged upon arrival at the farm. Note you need to travel to Lesotho with your passport.

Underberg

The Drakensberg is a mountain range which extends almost the length of South Africa. The range lies between South Africa and Lesotho. During winter snow can be seen on the mountains. This mountain range is the water catchment area for Kwa Zulu Natal's water supply.

This area is 2 hours drive from the Coast and the nearest international airport, and 4 hours drive from Johannesburg.
