The popular Drakensbergkloof Game and Trout farm Chalet in the Drakensberg Mountain at Bothas Pass between Memel in the Free State and New Castle in KwazuluNatal is certainly one of the most beautiful nature, birding and flyfishing destinations in the country.

And now they also offer a brand new safari bungalow camp in an idyllic setting in the mountain at a seasonal waterfall.

The farm nestles high in the foothills of Drakensberg mountain range in a spectacular gorge with majestic cliffs reaching to the sky, numerous waterfalls, beautiful indigenous trees, various game species and spectacular vistas

And remember - it can be cold in the mountains even im summer!

Other Activities Swim in the rock pool at the water fall (skinny dipping)- the farm has beautiful indigenous trees and is frequently visited by experts in the field

Visit the world-renowned Seekoeivlei Wetlands at Memel. The 2000 ha Seekoeivlei Wetlands -- listed as a Wetland of International Importance (RAMSAR) -- offers an estimated 350 bird species including many 'specials' and 15 Red Data listed species. At certain time of the year thousands of water birds congregate on the wetlands, and the grassland areas abound with bird life, making the area a true birding paradise. Scarce and endangered species such as the Wattled, Blue and Crowned Crane may be seen and sometimes roost together in the same part of the wetland. Special birds of the grasslands include Southern Bald Ibis, Blue Korhaan, Rudd's and Botha's Larks and Yellow-breasted Pipit
