Situated a few kilometres off the N3, just over an hour from Durban and 5 hours from Johannesburg, the beautiful Karkloof valley in the KwaZulu-Natal Midlands is fast becoming one of the premier mountain biking destinations in South Africa.

Sappi’s wide-spread plantations, coupled with the vision and dedication of passionate local mountain biking enthusiasts has resulted in a world-class trail network which is now accessible year round to recreational riders. Add to this the facilities offered at the Karkloof Country Club, including safe parking, hot showers and a place to wash your bike and you have everything you need to enjoy a mind blowing mountain biking experience!

If you are visiting the area for a weekend and need a place to stay, no need to worry!
