Colchester, a small village just outside Port Elizabeth is the ideal final training ground for Ironman participants. It offers both the environment to prepare before the Ironman event and relax thereafter.
The area also offers ample opportunities for non-participant entertainment.
Located on the banks of the Sundays River, Colchester is right next to the Alexandria Dunefield with it's unspoilt sand dunes. The Sundays River is safe for swimming and kilometers of beaches provide ample space for running.
The town is at the southern Entrance of the Addo Elephant National Park, making self-drive or guided visits to view the world famous Addo Elephant in their natural habitat. Other members of the big5 such as Buffalo and Lion are frequently seen.
Accommodation is at our 4 star Dungbeetle River Lodge and the adjacent River Cottage both overlooking the river and dune field.
Escape the hustle and bustle of the City and stay in a relaxed environment just 20 minutes away from the Port Elizabeth Beach Front.
