Rural Access Roads - Deep Rural South Africa - Makekeni and Ezimbokodweni

Access roads provide opportunities for sustainable development to deep rural communities. These vital roads allow movement of both people and goods. The Okhahlamba Municipality has undertaken the initiative to provide access roads to the rural communities of Makekeni and Ezimbokodweni.


The Drakensberg Mountains world heritage site is home to thousands of  local and international tourists.


Madudla Contractors together with Maxode Projects and Geotechnical Solutions have lent valuable expertise and experience.



Job Creation, Skills Development and Women Empowerment in rural areas build confidence and improve the local communities.

Rural Skills Development and Job Creation - South Africa

GeoSolEarth is proud to be a part of rural skills development and job creation. Most of the areas we service are poor with high unemployment rates. The roads we travel on are gravel dirt roads and the areas lack electricity, sanitation and clean drinking water.

We are however very fortunate to still see smiles on the faces of local kids and people... Our Geotechnical Solutions staff are always blown away by the warm welcomes and happy faces.

Giants Castle Nature Reserve - Central Drakensberg South

A Scenic Drive Towards The Giants Castle Nature Reserve...

Turning off from the Estcourt N3, winding through Wembezi ...




Giant's Castle is a mountain peak in the southern African Drakensberg in KwaZulu Natal. Giants Castle offers visitors to the regions hiking opportunities with panoramic views. The Nature Reserve offers secluded accommodation, bushman rock art with easy access for everyone and about the best base to start a Drakensberg hiking experience. The area is one of many of South Africa's adventure areas, and plays host to the Giants Challenge MTB marathon in April each year.

Lying at the southern end of the central Drakensberg Giant’s Castle, which gets its name from the outline of the peaks and escarpment that combine to resemble the profile of a sleeping giant, is essentially a grassy plateau that nestles among the deep valleys of this part of the Drakensberg.(Wikipedia)




Giants Castle Game Reserve is considered the home of the eland as well as the bearded vulture.…
