About Drakensberg Mountain Retreat - Vergezient Lodge

The Drakensberg Mountain Retreat is a stunning destination in the northern Drakensberg. Its spectacular views, wildness, freshness and beauty will captivate you while its deep silence, which can be startling at first, will soon calm you. It has a spectacular setting, high on a ridge overlooking the northern Drakensberg, the Maluti mountains and most of the central Drakensberg. Many have said that the views we have of the Drakensberg are unsurpassed.

A comfortable, cosy haven for those who like old fashioned holidays, with peace and quiet, excellent home cooked food, superb walks and hikes, reading near the fireplace, playing board games and pleasant company. A wonderful base from which to experience what this part of the Drakensberg has in store for you. An ideal retreat for individuals and groups, a place to rest, reflect and take stock of life.

                                          We arrived at the lodge and our first sighting was of a magnificent panorama exposure to a large section of the Drakensberg. The management was welcoming, efficient, friendly and provided us with whatever we required. We could not have asked for better service. The rooms were spacious, very comfortable and have views that are remarkable. The hiking was challenging which is what we sought. There are easier hikes as well.It is a little bit of heaven tucked away in an area of tranquility but easily accessible and close proximity to many towns and cities.

                                          We, as a family, enjoyed our stay at the Barnhouse. Although it was cold for October, the hearth was warm.

                                          We had a wonderful time at this resort. The staff are so friendly and accommodating of any special requests. The view is breathtaking and the accommodation is great, warmed by numerous fireplaces. A highly recommended choice for a tranquil winter getaway.

                                          Our stay in the barnhouse was amazing. The house is fully equipped with a huge kitchen and lounge/dining area with 2 indoor fireplaces. There are 5 en-suite bedrooms, and 4 bedrooms with 2 shared bathrooms. Gerry is a great manager who was always willing to help, and topped up our firewood daily - much needed in the freezing weather!

                                          We are so happy we found this place! It is very remote and you share the farm with- apart from a few other guests- about 80 wild horses. And it will be really hard to find another place with such a fantastic view of the Northern Drakensberg - we couldn't take our eyes off it! There is a wide variety of hikes in the area. And, on top of all this, Gerry and Elna are lovely hosts and their team offers wonderful service. We highly recommend this place!
