We are proud to have Olifants River Lodge as our hospitality partner for the 2019 Trail and MTB Festivals. Olifants River Lodge serves as our race villages for the respective weekends and their team is looking forward to hosting us. The Bezuidenhoutshoek Farm is situated right next to the race village and this is where all the action will take place and in partnership with our neighbours we give you a playground of over 6000h for the weekend. Bezuidenhoutshoek Farm is designated as irreplaceable and highly significant in terms of the Mpumalanga Tourism and Parks Authority’s bio diversity assessment criteria which qualifies it to be registered as a Protected area. The Olifants and Klein Olifants rivers converge in the North Western corner of the farm and meander on to Loskop and the Kruger National Park.
