It is a favourite destination for photographers, nature lovers, mountain bikers, anybody who wants to chill, as well as families who are tired of the city's hustle and bustle. It's a great home base from which to explore the beautiful eastern Free State, Katse dam in Lesotho, the grand old Berg, and even the northern part of KZN. Drive from this side into Lesotho and out the other side down Sani Pass - a bit different than the usual route and well worth the effort. From here to Afriski resort is a cat's spit (well maybe a little further) and you can camp there in summer - in addition to the skiing in winter! Taste the craft beers at the Clarens Brewery, sing to the oompah songs at Roter Hahn, have a nightcap at either of the whisky bars (or both....) and then you can walk home to Mount Rose without worrying about driving or too much falling down, because it's so close. Then again, some tourists WILL insist on taking the scenic route!! (photo taken on Rebellie 4x4 route outside Clarens)
