We are coming into summer quickly, and without much winter action, excepting a few cold spells and some snow on the mountains, giving way now to hot days and coolish nights, tempered by the optional log fires, logs cut from our few remaining Wattles, the rest having been cleared over the past 20 years, making way for our own indigenous forest.
Spring is here, and the September rains have come on time for the first time in years. We are re-introducing some specials on our mid-week pricing.
Already the scenery has changed from the winter brown to the spring green and it seems that the birds are getting up earlier and earlier to catch their early worms.
It seems that winter has come quickly and without warning.
Until just a couple of weeks ago we were basking in the late Autumn heat, and then in the first week of June we got the first real cold spell, with snow on the mountains.
This is a really wonderful time to visit the Berg – with cold nights around log fires – and then warm dry days which are perfect for a walk up the mountains.
Spring is one of the best times to visit the Drakensberg.
The summer rains are starting but not overwhelming, and the days are warm to hot and the evenings have lost the cold of winter, so that you can comfortably enjoy the evenings under the Southern Stars.
