Day 4 - departure day - Tlaeeng & return, or Oxbow & return for the more adventurous.
Routes can be adjusted to suit the strength of various levels of athletes.
The rides are out and back, so you can shorten the days depending on ability, or add a bit with Mahlasela repeats near Afriski.
This training camp setting in January 2019 has proven to be very beneficial for the group that embarked on the camp. Mountain biking is also a possibility with many trails around Afriski, and this lends itself to an Epic training camp block as well.

There are also a range of other activities for kids and non riders to do at Afriski in summer, and spending time at the altitude setting is always relaxing and fun, so if you want, bring the family and make a holiday out of your training block!
