Mac Mac Adventure Zone

The Mac Mac Quad Trails is an exciting new adventure for quad bike riders that cover some “off the beaten” trails in the picturesque Mpumalanga Escarpment area. Most of these “off the beaten” trails are off limits to the general public, but now, for the first time ever, Global Forest Products Pty Ltd approved a sole concession that allows us to take quad bike riders on a guided, eco friendly exploration in one of the rich historical and most beautiful areas of South Africa . The quad trails include spectacular mountain trails, stunning views, compellingly beautiful waterfalls, crystal clear rivers, hidden valleys and pristine forests.

Our new paintball course at Mac Mac Forest Retreat is another exciting addition to the activities we have on offer. A game of paintball includes a lot of exciting fun and plenty of laughter. So bring your co-workers, friends or family and spend a relaxing and fun filled day. Yet another exciting and awesome way to experience the "off the beaten track" beauty of the Mpumalanga Escarpment . Follow the upper Blyde River on a canoe. We start close to the catchments area of the Blyde River and enjoy spectacular scenery. This is not a white water rafting ride; it is a relaxing canoeing trip through beautiful areas on the Blyde River. The trip is suitable for families. Canoeing trips is seasonal, other activities include 4X4 routes, archery, hiking and gold panning

Gold panning may have its roots firmly in the past and can often be perceived to be dominantly in the domain of a bygone era in our history. In South Africa, gold panning has however both feet firmly in the future and has captured the interest and imagination of young and old. The 2005 World Gold Panning Championships hosted by South Africa at Pilgrims Rest was more than adequate proof that the gold fever that ignited a spirit of adventure in thousands of men and women in the past is still very prevalent in South Africa today.
