Dubbed as the country’s most unusual track, as it’s set in a nature reserve in Camperdown, the 25-year-old racing venue shares its space with a variety of wildlife such as kudu, warthog, zebra and buck. Although the animals steer clear on race day, they meander around the track as soon as the noisy carts have left. iDube is a challenging track suited to 125cc and gearbox carts with a two-speed paddle-shift, and smaller bikes. It features uphill’s, a couple of tight corners like 'thunder dome' and quick chicanes.
Camperdown lying part way between Hillcrest and Pietermaritzburg along the N3, has recently mushroomed for several rather obvious reasons. It lies close to both Durban and Pietermaritzburg, parts of its municipality falls within the Valley of 1000 Hills, which means that for the visitor it is a gorgeous part of the world to stay, and because of its situation away from the major cities, it has access to a fair number of game and nature reserves.
From Camperdown you also have easy access to other attractions like the Natal Lion Park, Shongweni Dam Nature Reserve and, of course, the Valley of 1000 Hills where a drive along the 1000 Hills Experience Route will bring you into contact with a myriad of artist, crafters and cultural villages.
