The tenth annual Berg and Bush event boasts some of the world’s best mountain
biking as riders plunge off the Drakensberg escarpment and descend into the
valleys and bushveld of KwaZulu-Natal.
Picturesque Em’seni Camp on the banks of the Tugela River is the race village
for the event, which was rated as the best MTB race in South Africa in 2009.
The line-up comprises three races – two three-day options called the Descent
and Great Trek, and the original Two-Day option.
With more than 2 500 participants across three races, this is an event not to be
The event starts with the Descent, which is the main prize money event for all
those competitive riders and racing snakes.
Next up is the mid-week Great Trek, which offers riding in a less crowded
environment for the adventurous soul who is not in a hurry.
Lastly the Berg and Bush event wraps up with the Two-Day, which is a more
manageable ride for family and friends. This feature is sociable and relaxed and
is reccomended for first-time multi-stage riders, but is just as “proper” as the
other two events.
