Badplaas, a Forever Resort 


Our annual Vets Tour is taking on a whole new format in 2016.  We are including Junior and U/16 Boys and Open Groups.  All routes will start at Badplaas, a Forever Resort, going into the different daily directions, and ending again at Badplaas.  This will resolve the logistical challenges to transport cyclists with bicycles and kit to off-site starting points. The event will take place from 16 to 19 June 2016 around the Badplaas area in Mpumalanga. 

Cyclists and their families, braving the harsh winter of the northern parts of South Africa, can take a well-deserved break and spend some quality time in the warm Mpumalanga region. Badplaas, a Forever resort offers facilities and entertainment for every member of the family.  Cyclists can enjoy their favourite sport whilst riding through the game reserve featuring a variety of antelope, wildebeest and more than 300 species of birds.  After a morning of riding, cyclists can relax painful muscles in the warm mineral springs swimming pools, or have themselves a relaxing massage or treatment at the Hydro Spa.

Unwinding next to the warm outdoor swimming pool or taking leisurely walks on the tree walking trail and botanical gardens, are some options for those tired city-lodgers wanting some quite time. Other activities on offer will keep the family busy for the remainder of the weekend:

  • Warm outdoor swimming pool
  • Game Drives
  • Super tube & Speed slide
  • Eco Quad bike trails
  • Putt-Putt
  • Horse Trails
  • Paintball War Games


  • R1 250 per person for 4 stage tour
