Wits End is a stone's throw from the uKhahlamba Drakensberg Park, one of only 7 sites world-wide having been awarded World Heritage status in 3 categories, for archaeology, vegetation and geology.

Wits End’s 10 acre dam is one of the largest in the area and attracts an abundance of bird life. The dam is stocked with Natal yellow fish and rainbow trout so guests can enjoy fly fishing right on their doorstep. Alternately explore the dam and meandering river on one of our canoes.

After browsing 4 resorts on the internet, i stumbled upon Wits End. I sent an email enquiring about the resort and i could tell from the response that Wits End was going to be a home away from home. Me and my thirteen cousins stayed at Wits end for a weekend, it was our first holiday. Wits End resort was breathtaking, we arrived at 23h00 and the risk officer was so helpful. The rooms are big and super clean, the security is tight. Next time we hit the Berg, Wits End will forever be our resort of choice. Thank you Skye and your team, you guys are super cool:)
