The Kamberg Valley Nature Reserve is well known for it’s ancient and beautiful Bushman Rock Art, Fly fishing and for it’s breathtaking mountainous scenery.
If you fancy yourself a photographer some of the best places to take pictures are at Highmoor. There are plenty of opportunities for nature shots too, just by driving around the Kamberg Valley, there are so many treed lanes, wild flowers, vast open skies with their unique cloud shapes, Drakensberg views, the trout dams or at the Bushman Rock Art provides a awesome backdrop for that perfect picture.
The best time to visit the Kamberg Valley is during the summer months, because one can take full advantage of the great and wonderful outdoors. Not to undermine the winter months, when it comes to relaxation in amongst the beautiful creations of nature, there is little the Kamberg Valley can’t offer you, think glorious ever changing landscapes views from your plush suite accompanied by friendly staff and glorious food around the log fire with only the sweet sounds of nature to accompany you.
If you’d like a bit of entertainment while in the Kamberg Valley do try The Notties Hotel. If you’d like to hang out with some of the locals go to The Knackered Swan at the Kamberg Store. One of the best things to do with friends is to take a game drive up the mountain with a picnic and enjoy the sunset with some wine. If you are yearning for some culture the Midlands offers concerts show casing local talents.
The most relaxing and mind clearing thing I do is walk through the forest to the natural waterfall and let the fresh water wash over me. If you have an adventurous spirit Hot Air Ballooning is on offer in the valley.
If you find yourself in the Kamberg Valley in the month of May, expect the annual Kamberg Trout Festival and the Glengarry Mountain Bike Challenge.
One of the best hikes to do with the kids, is walking to the plateau of Highmoor, there’s plenty of fun to be had in the many dams and the waterfalls accompanied by stunning views perfect for those stunning holiday pictures. If your kids like horse back riding, the Drakensberg Excursions with Heidi and Patrick would be a pleasant activity too.
The one undeniable fact is that Kamberg Valley’s best kept secret is the secluded and underdeveloped natural beauty of the valley.
