Tuesday 11 April. Drakensberg hikes can be a most rewarding experience.The Champagne Valley walking club do regular Tuesday walks this week to Wonder Valley past the old oaks and on to Valley View. long walk but not too steep. We start at Champagne Castle Hotel car park at 7.00 am and walk south below the Little Berg to the top of Wonder Valley offering beautiful mountain views up the valley. We pass an avenue of oak trees and the remains of an old farmhouse which is reputed to have been a refuge for some Italians during the Second World war.
