Competitors in the Liberty Waterberg Encounter will have a variety of accommodation options to choose from when the mountain-bike race is held near Bela-Bela in Limpopo next month.
The three-day event takes place from June 7 to 9 and one of the prime accommodation opportunities which awaits entrants will be the Elements Private Golf Estate.
This is the race village and will be the accommodation venue for the Friday and Saturday nights.
“This makes it a prized option,” said ASG Events chief executive Erick Oosthuizen. “The first stage, which starts at the Sondela Nature Reserve, finishes at Elements and the second stage starts and finishes at the Golf Estate.”
He emphasised the up-market nature of the tented accommodation.
“This is certainly not your average camping tent, because it comes with
comfortable beds and mattresses, white linen, soft duvets and pillows.
“In addition, the tents will contain bedside tables, vanity mirrors, electric lanterns, blankets, carpets, waste-paper bins and chairs, so that should all add to the experience.”
While emphasising the convenience of booking to stay at the Elements Private Golf Estate, Oosthuizen said there was also accommodation available at the Sondela Nature Reserve for those who wanted to pursue that option.
Entries for the race close on May 22.
