HIKING TRAILS FEATURED IN SA COUNTRY LIFE MAGAZINE

Our 'Wartrail Skywalk' hiking trails are featured in the January 2013 edition of  SA's Country Life magazine. Fiona McIntosh writes "The final day took us over hill and down dale deep into Wild Mountain Country. Bearded Vultures soared above the precipitous cliffs, and secret paths led to tumbling waterfalls and through more beautiful pastures of alpine wildflowers, before we rounded off the trail with a swim at a secluded rock pool".

GETAWAY TO THE EASTERN CAPE HIGHLANDS
Getaway Magazine have published a lovely article about the Eastern Cape Highlands in their June 2011 edition. Written by Marion Whitehead (author of Passes and Poorts), 'Tweaking the Dragon's Tail' is a very good guide for anyone wishing to visit Wild Mountain Country.... "Glorious passports to crystal-clear mountain air, alpine meadows and craggy peaks"

Motorbike Tours

THE LONG WAY ROUND...AND UP... AND DOWN
Following the incredible popularity of the Cape BMW Motorcycle Club's tours of the Eastern Cape Highlands, we are now offering guided motorbike tours. The variable weather and road conditions in the mountains mean that a guided tour is the safest and most fun way to takle the 8 Passes on two wheels.
