With what is hopefully, the last chilly blast this winter, we move into September. We look forward to warmer weather and longer days, as spring peeps around the corner. The acacia trees wear a delicate veil of pale green leaves and the game start preparing for a brand new batch of bushveld babies!
The First Top Of The Waterberg Trail Run was held 14 to 15 August 2021
Despite one of the coldest of the winter fronts sweeping through the Waterberg that weekend, 27 courageous runners turned up to tackle the two day stage race in the bitter cold! None-the-less, we all had a great time, with participants commenting on the well organised event (thanks to Shane and the Trail adventure team);
the well marked and well kept trails (thanks to Alan, Dom and the Lindani team); the delicious and warming food (thanks to Denise, Musa, Dikoledi and the Lindani Kitchen team); and the incredible diversity and beauty of the run itself (thanks to the Waterberg biosphere!)
Well done to Christo Steyn and Sune Mattee, winning the 2 day 25 + 22 km male and female run respectively, and well done to Gustav Peterson and Adelle Bezuidenhout for taking the prize for the 2 day 12 +6 km mini trail runs!
New Trails On Lindani
Having already marked the trails for Top of the Waterberg Trailrun, and having decided they were really a fun run , Alan and Dom have determined to keep the trails permanently marked, allowing guests to enjoy them in their own time and at their own pace.
We are also excited to announce the establishment of the “Nipper’s” Cycling Routes around all the lodges! These create safe and easy routes for youngsters (and perhaps for those older persons who would just prefer a gentler ride). Catering to all in the family is really important to us, so do bring your children for a fabulous time out in the open and amongst the game. We have a few bikes to hire, so please feel free to bring friends who are new to cycling as well!
Also new, is our spruced-up Loft with its gorgeous, re-vamped rock pool – perfect for families and larger crowds wanting to take advantage of the warmer weather!
Also, watch out for our new website, ready to be launched any day now!
Wishing you all a happy Spring time, and hopefully see you soon!
Cathy, and the Lindani Team
