Riverlea is a 700Ha farm, just outside the village of Underberg in the Southern Drakensberg, that caters specifically for the Multisport athlete. Pristine single track that threads through the property allows the Mountain Biker or Trail Runner to ride or run from directly from their accommodation onto the course. The Riverlea single track links directly into the neighbouring Sani Spoors MTB trails, which means guests have access to over 60km of single track.

Swim courses on two of the farm’s dams provide safe, clean, open water training and allow for complete X-Terra sessions.

For triathletes and road runners there is a parking area five minutes drive from Riverlea where athletes can choose a variety of tar options for Bike, Brick or Run sessions. The roads in the Underberg area are relatively safe and quiet, with low traffic volumes and magnificent scenery.

Riverlea property also includes six kilometres of the uMzimkhulu River, which gives canoeists private access onto the well-known Drak Challenge course.

In addition to the multisport options, Riverlea provides top quality fly-fishing on its’ six kilometer section of the uMzimkhulu River. This stretch includes some of the best trout waters in the Underberg district and guests enjoy sole access. On the still water front there are three well-stocked trout dams which are limited to fly-fishing and two further dams where trout and bass co-exist and bass tackle is permitted. Guests have full access to the property for activities such as walking and bird-watching or picnicking and tubing at the river. Riverlea is a working dairy and beef farm and children are welcome to watch the cows being milked or the calves being fed.

Accommodation on Riverlea comprises two fully-equipped self-catering cottages, each in its own private setting.
