Cap­ti­vat­ing, Care­free Clarens

SLOW Magazine - - Must Go -

Clarens, just a three-hour drive away from both Jo­han­nes­burg and Dur­ban, is a pic­turesque get­away des­ti­na­tion. “Clarens has grown into a bustling lit­tle town of art gal­leries, restau­rants, cafés, and the ex­cep­tional Clarens Brew­ery. The area around this Free State town also has much to of­fer within just a short drive,” says Avuk­ile Mabombo, Group Mar­ket­ing Man­ager of Protea Ho­tels by Mar­riott. The out­skirts of the town of­fer ac­tiv­i­ties such as golf­ing, river raft­ing, and hunt­ing down di­nosaur foot­prints in the nearby Golden Gate High­lands Na­tional Park. Quad bike trails and horse­back gameview­ing are also avail­able within the Na­tional Park, and if you’d rather use your own horse power, there are plenty of moun­tain-bik­ing trails just out­side of town into the moun­tains. The town of Clarens is also burst­ing with cre­ative tal­ent – the streets are lined with art gal­leries with a strong fo­cus on lo­cal artists.
