Verified reviewexcellent

Will definitely be making an annual visit to Drakensberg Bush lodge. We had an amazing stay. Emile and team are friendly and helpful and very accommodating. Within minutes of needing assistance , someone was there to give assistance. The accommodation itself was lovely and comfortable, the rooms are big and spacious. The surrounds are calm and quiet, ideal for a family breakaway from the city!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
