THE HAYTERDALE CLUBHOUSE
The Clubhouse is a treasure for all types of events and gatherings. It was recently built in 2020 by Robert Hayter himself.
To host an event here would be having a beautiful morning, day or evening under the African skies. The building bears no walls so that you and your guests can enjoy the moment completely nestled in nature. A tin roof will shelter you from rain so that you are guaranteed to have a stress-free event. Your guests will be able to enjoy a true South African pit fire where they can share old, and create new, stories. A wooden deck sits sternly over the Hayterdale dam which offers life to the bush and it’s living creatures. Next to the clubhouse are camping grounds so that guests can walk to their beds after a wholesome night of creating memories.
WHAT PEOPLE SAY
THE PLACE TO BE
We at Hayterdale Trails believe … Mountain Biking and Trail Running are outstanding ways to spend your free time.
We specialize in delivering one, two and three day events for both disciplines. There are many spectacular Mountain Biking and Trail Running events to choose from, both offering unique trails and stunning scenery, with warm showers waiting at the end. Hayterdale Trails is happy to cater to groups of various sizes and requirements.
ON THE BIKE...
Choose between the different route options, each one with its own difficulty each with endless kilometres of flowing single-track, or test your technical skills on a world-class cross-country (XCO) and downhill (DHI) track. The 4.2km XCO course has approximately 130m of elevation gain and loss with a technical switchback climb and the “Rabbit Hole” over-and-under crossing, while the 1.77km DHI course features a hair-raising vertical drop of 240m.
OFF THE BIKE...
You’re right next door to the world-famous Addo Elephant National Park where you can hike, take game drives or even go on a horseback safari. Hire one of our luxurious tents and host a proper South African pit fire as the sun sets over the Impala grazing in the field. Enjoy the 360 degree views of the natural world surrounding you. Watch and listen to the genius of birds in the Addo bush. The walks on Hayterdale farm are meditative in bringing you back to nature’s welcoming arms.
We understand in this modern age that sometimes not everyone can just switch off for a few days. That’s why we have set up free guest Wifi around our clubhouse for all guests to stay connected with their friends and family while enjoying their time off in the heart of the Zuurberg mountains! So if you need to quickly send off that email, phone a loved one or share your amazing Hayterdale experience, you can!
The good folk from oZone Africa have spent many hours traveling and exploring the South African wilderness and sharing their experiences as they go. They spent a long weekend at Hayterdale and explored the Zuurberg mountains and had a lot of great things to say. Their recent issue of oZine magazine perfectly sums up their trip.
