In 1980 Malcolm and Rea bought the farm Annasrust in the then very rural and undeveloped Champagne Valley. The farm was a tomato and potato farm with development rights for a caravan and camping resort.

With the blueprint for the resort at hand, Malcolm started to build the resort and dig the numerous holes for all the wonderful trees that now provide the resort with its park like atmosphere. Building suppliers arrived on the train and were dropped off at the railway siding in Loskop from where Malcolm and the staff collected them.

Once the park was established, Malcolm and Rea needed to name their newly developed resort. They “borrowed” the name of Reg Pearce’s book on the Wild Flowers of the Drakensberg.

The first guests were welcomed to the 20 or so original sites in Easter 1985. Over the next 20 years, Rea and Malcolm continued to grow the park and diversify the range of services on offer for guests.

In 2005, Rea and Malcolm were joined by their youngest son, Iain who took over much of the day to day running of the resort as Rea and Malcolm semi-retired from the business. Iain (not big on office work) hired a lady to assist in the office.

Since then Iain has taken over the business from his parents and with the assistance from management staff and his family Su, Abigael and Joshua runs the resort in the same tradition his parents started it. Owner managed, personal service and high standards.
