Drakensberg Polar Bear Swim Challenge - Drakensberg & Surroundings, KwaZulu Natal

Drakensberg Polar Bear Swim Challenge

 In aid of the Estcourt and District SPCA

The Dragon Peaks Dam in the KwaZulu Natal Drakensberg is home to the annual Estcourt Polar Bear Swim. The event is staged to raise funds for the Estcourt SPCA, and requires participants brave the frigid waters of the Dragon Peaks Dam, swimming from the shore to the Boma on "Bunny" Island. Swimmers have a choice of either a 100 m route, or for the less enthusiastic a shorter 25 m course. No wetsuits are allowed. Certificates will be awarded to all finishers, and a number of prizes will be up for grabs on the day.

Proceeds from entries are donated to the Estcourt SPCA.

Spectators are welcome, and encouraged to bring along some Tinned Pet Food, old blankets, etc.
