One is able to drive in any direction and be sure to come across numerous outdoor activities including hiking in the Drakensberg, horse riding, fishing and mountain biking.

Historical Background: The Missionary Sisters of the Precious Blood opened the hospital in 1937. It was originally registered for 32 beds. The distinctive statue of 'Christ the King' was put up in 1938. Formally run by the nuns at Sacred Heart Covent, the hospital was taken over by the province in 1984.
