About Drakensberg Mountain Retreat

Drakensberg Mountain Retreat is a stunning destination in the northern Drakensberg only 20km beyond Sterkfontein Dam. Situated high on a ridge overlooking the Drakensberg and the Maluti Mountains many have said that the views are unsurpassed.

It offers much more than comfortable, affordable country style accommodation. Its spectacular views, vast spaces, wild winds and superb walks make it the perfect place to experience the beauty and magnificence of the Drakensberg. Its deep silences, unfamiliar at first, will soon work its magic resuscitating body and mind. This is a place to relax, unwind, take stock - a place to rejuvenate - a place to regain peace.

This is a cosy haven for those who like old fashioned holidays, with peace and quiet, excellent home-style cooking, reading near the fireplace, playing board games and pleasant company; also a wonderful base to experience the mighty Drakensberg. An ideal retreat for individuals, families or groups either self catered or fully catered.
