A BOUQUET OF FUN AT BON ACCORDE RESORT
Choose to stay in Bon Accorde’s comfortable waterside chalets and enjoy all the activities at our sister property, Albert Falls Dam and Game Reserve. As a Bon Accorde guest, your car disc will also give you free access to Albert Falls Dam to explore the picnic sites there or the game reserve. Choose from watersports or fishing, game-viewing, hikes or birding.
Consider also whether you’d like to time your stay at Bon Accorde Resort for one of the several popular events we host during the year. These include:
Bon Accorde New Year’s Eve Bash: A great way to mark the turn of the year; 31 December/1 January.
National Open Water Swim Competition: This highlight of our season of open water swim events takes place in April at Albert Falls Dam.
Siyashosholoza Picnic: In 2010 DJ Show created the Siyashosholoza entertainment concept, promoting a lifestyle of unity. We host one of these funky and hot musical picnics each year in October.
Ozzie Gladwin Canoe Marathon: Your waterside chalet gives you a prime spot for watching the action in the 4km flat-out race across Albert Falls Dam during this premier one-day, SA canoe race each November. With a total distance of 26km of testing paddling and portaging, it launches KZN’s summer river-racing season dramatically.
Fezela Canoe Marathon: Staged in mid-January at a critical point in the KwaZulu-Natal Canoe Union calendar when paddlers are peaking their training schedules for the Dusi Canoe Marathon, this also serves as one of the Dusi’s final seeding events. Using both the water and the banks around the dam, this offers enough distance to test the paddlers, some serious portages to condition them for the Dusi and thrills aplenty for spectators.
