A Drakensberg Holiday this Father’s Day

It’s almost Father’s Day! Why not treat dad to an outdoor retreat in the Drakensberg? Oaklands has got hiking, fishing and biking set against a countryside backdrop.

And lucky for you, we’re running a winter accommodation special so spoiling dad doesn’t have to break the bank…

An Outdoor Holiday for Dads

Explore the countryside by foot or saddle, or sit back and bait for bass this Father’s Day. Here are some outdoor activities for you and dad to bond over…

Mountain Biking

The Oaklands countryside is full of mountain bike trails of varying distances and intensities. Think you can keep up with dad’s pace? Pull out your Drakensberg maps, and let your old man decide which trail is right for him.


Take a leisurely stroll on the Oaklands property or get dad’s heart pumping on a day hike into the Berg. A range of service providers also offer guided walks throughout the KwaZulu Natal countryside, during which you can learn a thing or two about the local landscape, history and culture.



Catch and release with dad all weekend long! The Northern Drakensberg is prime fishing territory, which means there is always an abundance of bass and trout. What a perfect opportunity to cast out, reel in and relax with dad…

Father’s Day at Kathy’s Kitchen

The above outdoor activities are bound to work up an appetite. Give dad his full with a Father’s Day lunch or dinner at resident restaurant Kathy’s Kitchen. Our chef Kathy Romer-Lee promises unfussy food that’s big on flavour, so prepare to feast on home-style brunches, lunches, teas and dinners all weekend. There is no set menu, so relish the spontaneous and heart-warming eats during your stay.


Located in the middle of Johannesburg and Durban, Oaklands Country Manor makes for an easy three-hour road trip – another  bonding opportunity! Go ahead…book your Drakensberg holiday with dad today…
