Tonic on tour…. these cats really do live an adventurous life. Tonic was quite relaxed in the vehicle until the summit of Spioenkop when Ron started his introduction. Out he stepped, rubbing himself along the edge of the memorial ready for the talk!

Out and about exploring rock paintings in the mountains with local guide Hlengi, employed by Siyapambili tours ( Elijah Mbonane founder) at Royal Natal National Park – 60km from Three Trees. Guests from Three Trees can arrange a picnic wit the lodge before driving themselves to the park. A fairly short walk (approximately 40 minutes) to the overhang where the paintings can be seen. The interpretation makes the experience well worth while, even though the site has been vandalised in the past.
Gin & Tonic are 2 ginger rescue-cats that were given to us by a neighbour. These are no ordinary cats! At 9 weeks old, Tonic has decided to join us on a game walk through the reserve. Sticking with us, not venturing far at all, she kept up the whole way.
Brent has been hard at work creating a beautiful, peaceful spot to enjoy nature along one of our Walking Trails. We have strung up a 2-seater swing underneath a giant, old Acacia tree that looks out over the Spioenkop Dam & Drakensberg mountains in the distance. Only 600m (15 minutes) walk from the lodge. Why not ask for a packed lunch & you can enjoy an old-fashioned picnic under the tree or just go climbing, if you feel the urge!
Annual Hambrook Village Traditional Horse Racing Derby held yesterday. 11 race categories over a distance of 1400m. Approximately 60 horses took part, travelling from Bergville, Ladysmith, Dundee & Estcourt. Fastest growing sort in the country!
