No one too young or too old!

About the people:
Champagne Castle Adventure Centre was started in 2006 by couple Jakes and Cornelia Saaiman and Glenn Tungay. Jakes has worked as an adventure guide in Switzerland, Namibia, Uganda and throughout South Africa prior to settling down with his wife Cornelia to start the adventure centre. Cornelia completed her BA (Tourism and Geography) degree at Potchefstroom and taught for six years abroad and in SA. We chose this magnificent spot, the Central Drakensberg as our base due to the endless adventure possibilities and hope this area will soon become known as an adventure destination for the traveller.
We are backed by a great team of experienced and friendly guides!
The Adventure Centre is based on a 1000 acres, Dragon Peaks Mountain Resort. We are located on the R600 via Winterton next to the world famous Drakensberg Boys’ Choir.
