Your Guides

The Marico Eye

The Marico Eye

Mike Draper will arrange routes of different levels to suit all cyclists, including a ride to Die Oog. The Eye is a 14m deep pool, the source of the Marico river, which stays the same temperature all year round. We will cycle there, and enjoy a refreshing swim before returning back to the Centre on the gravel road. Lucy Draper-Clarke will offer yoga, suitable for all participants. Her style focuses on bringing mindful awareness into physical practice, so that we can be fully aware of our bodies. This can be of great benefit to active sports participants, as well as those wanting to find ways to relax.
