Grindrod Bank Berg & Bush Descent 2019 Day 1
Fri 4 Oct - Sun 6 Oct 2019 @ Near Harrismith, KwaZulu-Natal

Berg & Bush

The Grindrod Bank Berg & Bush takes mountain bikers from the top of the Drakensberg escarpment near Harrismith and drops down into Kwazulu-Natal negotiating world-famous single track into the bushveld below into Winterton. We have three events to choose from, the Descent & Great Trek are three day events and the 2 day Original is 2 days of riding.

Riders camp along the shady banks of the Tugela river at the famous Em'Seni Camp ready to tackle the next two days of spectacular bushveld riding. With farm-style hospitality and an area rich in history, not to mention incredible riding, you're sure to have a proper adventure on your bike!
