Directions to iKhayalamafu
Follow the R600 to the Central Berg – past Thokozisa, past Cedarwood Shopping Centre, past the Drakensberg Boys’ School, and past the Champagne Castle Hotel – until you reach the gate to the Monk’s Cowl Reserve. Phone us as you pass the school and we shall meet you at the gate and guide you to your cabin. You do not need to pay an entrance fee.
The access road:
From the Monk’s Cowl car park, which is at an elevation of 1 480m (4 856 feet), to the cabins (1 550m or 5 085 feet) is a drive of 1,3km and an ascent of 70m (229 feet). The road is maintained and stoned regularly, but it is steep in parts and it is slippery in wet weather. Sedan motor cars can be used in dry conditions (though leave your Porsche at home), but an SUV is highly recommended. A 4x4 vehicle would be even better.
Monk’s Cowl gate:
The gate to the Monk’s Cowl Reserve is locked at 18h00 or 19h00 in the evening (depending on the time of the year) and opened only at 06h00 in the morning. If you wish to go out at night, we shall give you a key to the gate and you will be expected to lock it behind you.
