Description

Camp like a champ at the Alpine Swift Trails main camp site next to the natural swimming pool and tennis court. A group of up to 10 persons can comfortably camp here. Relax on the top level of a wooden gazebo where you can have sundowners on the hammock, admiring the spectacular mountain scenery.

Wild camping:
Choose your spot on the Bell River, under a willow tree or in the forest next to the farm dam. Some sites have a braai and washbasin, while others are completely untouched. There are some great swimming spots in the river, fly fishing, river walks, mountain stairs to climb, birding, and an abundance of trails to explore!

Alpine Swift Trails is a high altitude training facility for sportspeople, situated on the beautiful Grace Hill Farm, just outside Rhodes Village in the Southern Drakensberg, very close to Lesotho. Two of the highest mountain passes in South Africa, the Naude's Neck Pass and the Carlisleshoek Pass are both on our doorstep. Altitudes reach up to 3,001m above sea level.

Alpine Swift Trails is an ideal getaway for anyone wanting to escape it all. Experience the beauty of the Rhodes area in the Southern Berg and stay in one of our accommodation units. You'll have full access to our facilities and activities on the working farm.
