Drakensberg accommodation

So, you’re preparing for a holiday around the scenic Drakensberg Mountains, what an excellent choice!

Go on an exhilarating canopy tour in Cathkin Park. Meet the fascinating predatory birds at the African Bird of Prey Sanctuary in Pietermaritzburg. Enjoy exciting cable tours, quad trails, mountain bike trails and free fall swings at All Out Adventures in Bergville.

Popular areas to stay in the Drakensberg

Most of our travellers seeking Drakensberg accommodation prefer to stay in the nearby towns of the charming Bergville and the busy Underberg. Others look a little further out with places to stay in Winterton (the entry point to the Champagne Valley) and the beautiful Himeville. Other great areas to consider include: Champagne Valley, places near Sani Pass, and Cathedral Peak.

How about accommodation outside the Drakensberg? To the southwest in the Eastern Cape Drakensberg are a number of pretty villages and towns, all with awesome views of the mountain range. There’s Rhodes, with its dust roads populated by Victorian tin-roofed cottages, a popular destination for 4x4 enthusiasts, hikers and trailer runners. Other places include the seemingly untouched Maclear, which will give you more access to the natural beauty of South Africa, and Ugie, with towering mountains forming its backdrop. More adventures in the scenic outdoors await with accommodation in Elliot.
