Travel differently. Experience the wilderness of the Drakensberg Mountains in luxury, hiking a slackpacking trail, float gently over the foothills in a hot air balloon, sit and admire the view or visit the second highest waterfall in the world.
The Drakensberg is an adventure destination of note. Its here you can do a horse back trail in a game reserve, maintain control of a down hill scooter, slide through the forest canopy, explore the area on a quad bike and challenge yourself to abseiling
Experience the intimacy of a romantic dinner on while doing a private dining on the Deck of a luxury cave by candlelight under the stars. Relax in a hammock camp and listen to african folk tales of the night sky. Top things off with a day spent at a spa.
Tranquility and beauty of nature
As a World Heritage site the Northern Drakensberg are very understated, they don’t offer hip entertainment, however the raw majestic beauty reminds one that it is a privilege to be on this planet and enjoy the sheer tranquility of Mother Nature.
A place to take in the fresh air and scenery and on a cloudless night the majestic starry heavens are breathtaking. A place to walk and refresh ones mind. There are loads of self catering as well as hotels in the Champagne valley. Just over three hours from Durban and four hours by car from Johannesburg, if you love nature spoil yourself and your family, the evenings have time to bond and day time share a walk or an adventure together as a family. We have been regular visitors for the last 20 years and never tire of coming back to have peace on earth, far from the noise of life. Three night here is like three weeks holiday at a coastal resort.

After being on my bucket list for quite some time my family and I visited Central Drakensberg. The majestic mountains and the host of activities in the area was beyond our expectations. We look forward to our next visit.
