Wakeboard Action at Emanzini Country Resort

On behalf of The South African Wakeboard Association, we have great pleasure in announcing the Ronix SA Pro Wakeboard Tour Stop 3 in Collaboration with Mastercraft Boats and hosted by the Emanzini Country Resort, Vrede, Eastern Free State being held on the 11, 12 and 13 March 2011.

Just under two hours from Johannesburg, Emanzini Country Resort is the perfect holiday and weekend getaway destination. Set in the rolling grasslands of the Eastern Free State, the Resort has spectacular views of neighbouring farms and the Langberg Mountains. At the confluence of two spruits, the 49-year-old dam is the creator of a wetland that now hosts a large variety of birdlife.

Vrede is a scenic little town with an imposing sandstone church. The town lies in the North-Eastern Free State about 20km east of the N3, close to the Mpumalanga border. The town was established in 1863 by European landowners of this area. Vrede is surrounded by undulating, Highveld hills in the spine of the Drakensberg.

The town is equipped with all the basic requirements including an excellent SPAR bakery and a good selection of meat at reasonable prices. In fact, all prices of most commodities in the town seem to be reasonable! The banks have 24 hour ATM's and the folk are friendly and helpful. Vrede and the surrounding area is a rewarding tourist destination.

The weekend starting 11 March 2010 is a good time to visit Emanzini Country Resort if you enjoy adventure activities and especially wakeboarding!
