Misty Valley…The words themselves seem to conjure up images of forested mountains and remote valley trails soothed by Africa’s morning silk and touched in golden sunlight. Now imagine escaping to this magical place with nothing more then your beloved Mountain Bike and some like minded enthusiasts.
Join us at one of South Africa’s most luxurious resorts for a great mountain biking experience.
Misty Valley Family Resort is situated just above Waterval Boven in Mpumalanga and offers a variety of activities for the whole family, ranging from bird-watching and canoeing to lounging in the sauna.
The weekend’s activities, however, will involve more biking then lounging, and we have put together some amazing trails to suite all levels of riders.
Springbuck, Black Wildebeest, Eland, Red Hartebeest and Zebra are just a few of the wild animals that you will see while cruising the escarpment single tracks and exhilarating bridge crossings.
After a good days mountain biking, riders can share their ‘tall tales’ and a cold one around a fire at the “Mad Dog In The Fog” pub before enjoying a three course meal in the Knight & Boar restaurant.
This will be a breakaway that you will not forget in a hurry!
