Get active

The Lowveld is well-known and loved for its outdoor active lifestyle due to the varied and diverse natural terrains for one to explore on foot or saddle.   

Mountain biking

Mountain bike trails start just 1 km from Heuglins,  on trails cutting and winding through farmlands, forests and rolling hills.  Visit MTO White River Trails for a visual feast of the outdoor active experience.

Road cyclists can test their strength to Sabie or Long Tom Pass.

Trail running

The multitude of road and trail running opportunities existing in the Lowveld are enough for any runner to escape the city smoke and head to our valleys and hills for crisp country air for their marathons and trail runs.

Dam days

Watersports, fishing and simply blissful days at the water’s edge in the warm Lowveld climate abound.

Klip Koppie Dam allows motor boats, jet skis and fishing.  A reasonable daily access free enables a picnic or braai on one of the grassy picnic spots along the water’s edge.    

Witklip Dam is more remote, offering tranquillity and open spaces to feed the soul.
