The African Otter Challenge run separates the men from the boys, so to speak. Each year The Otter African Trail Run takes place in an alternating direction, so boring ‘same old same old’ here! It’s the same route but different climbs to conquer and all new spectacular views to look forward to. 2018 will see the event run from West to East, starting at Natures Valley and finishing at Storms River Mouth Rest Camp. Marathon Distance. Four river crossings. Over 2600 meters of elevation gain and 11 significant climbs. This is what makes The Otter ‘The Grail of Trail’. Ouch! So, sleeping in a tent not your style? Support your loved one from the side lines but stay in the lap of luxury and read a good book basking in the Plett sunshine on your own, personal verandah. Book your room with us and enjoy the finer things in life. Enquire about our winter rates.
