The prestigious 50km Mont-Aux-Sources Challenge - part of the Old Mutual Wild Series - takes place in the Royal Natal Park on 9 September 2017. The Royal Natal Park is part of the Ukhahlamba-Drakensberg World Heritage Site and home to the endangered Bearded Vulture.
The Bearded Vulture once roamed freely from the Cape of Good Hope, along the eastern mountain spine of Africa, and into northwest Africa. Now it is thought that the only population left in the Southern Hemisphere resides in our isolated and rugged Maluti-Drakensberg highlands, and that there are less than 100 pairs left.
