GLIDING-Drakensberg Soaring Club

The Drakensberg Soaring Club is situated 8 km from the town of Underberg in KwaZulu Natal, South Africa. The club is situated on the farm Utopia and as a result the airfield is known, amongst its members, as Utopia Base. The club is fortunate to have two grass strip runways, these being 14/32 and 05/23.

The Club offers flights in a pure glider with one of our experienced instructors. You will be taken aloft to silently soar above the fields.  If you are lucky, you might have eagles or vultures  join the flight, providing a photo opportunity very  few people have.  It will be an experience you will never forget!

Since our club does not fly regularly, please contact Mr Ken Brown  (Chairman) as indicated below:
