Is Gauteng’s ‘winter blues’ getting to you? Have you had it with the rat race? Then consider a wickedly-wild weekend in the spectacular Mpumalanga bush at the River’s Edge Lodge. This scenic and secluded lodge is hosting an exclusively-gay weekend, from Friday 28 to Sunday 30 July, which is sure to revive and invigorate your spirit.

The packages – starting from a mere R850 for the weekend – include accommodation on Friday and Saturday nights, all meals, as well as entertainment by The Five Diamonds; Kimberley’s first ever drag cabaret group.

The lodge and camp, situated in a gorge right on the edge of the cascading Houtbosloop River, are entirely booked out for this ‘pink weekend’, ensuring complete privacy and gay-friendly service.

You’ll be staying among the lush vegetation of the pristine valley, with all its unique and soul-lifting offerings. And all budgets are accommodated! You have the option to stay in comfortable timber lodges elevated above the trees, the bush camp’s riverside A-Frame tents, or at the bring-your-own-tent campsite.

It’s a weekend that you’ll be able to shape to suit your needs and every desire. If you’re up for adventure, the lodge offers numerous outdoor activities including abseiling, hiking, caving, and even river rafting. Or, you could curl up in bed spending the weekend reading (or engaging in other bed-related activism) and relax around the campfire and braai areas in the evening.

Just over two hours from Joburg, the River’s Edge Lodge is a haven for the city-weary. Come with your lover and play, or bring friends and meet new and interesting people. You decide; after all, it’s your Wild Weekend!

Don’t miss this opportunity to truly get away from it all; spending a fun and relaxing weekend in nature with other fun-seeking gay guys!
