    The south coast is one of my favourite places to visit as it has everything to offer everyone who loves the sun, sea and the outdoors and especially mountain biking! We have camped at Land Eland and totally loved it! So hope to visit again and we go nowhere without out bikes and would love the opportunity to ride there!!!

    Love everything about, from the scenery to the adventures. This would be something that I feel would re-unite my husband and I as, we are going through a rough patch, and sad thing is that we never get time to talk it out or go out to enjoy each other. So winning this would be ideal to bring back our love back, as we have lost so much in life.

    This sounds absolutely amazing that one place offers all of the above in their package. What I am most excited about is the snorkelling. I also love hiking and am sure if theres mountain bike trails that there will be a place to do a few short hikes too. Its like an all-in-one holiday!

  39. Zimkhitha Avatar

    I absolutely love the mountain bike trails. I’ve always wanted to overcome this fear of riding a horse, so beach horse riding will also be a good idea. I also love mountain biking, & i like the fact that there is an on site restaurant. There is fun activities that my hubby and I would really enjoy, it would be a perfect time for us to bond and unwind. My birthday is on the 12 of November, this would be the perfect birthday gift ever.
