Imagine a misty mountain hideaway where the lush rolling hills of KwaZulu-Natal meet the towering buttresses of the southern Drakensberg Mountains. Here lies Castleburn, a place of exquisite beauty and tranquillity. The Resort’s thatched chalets and apartments provide you with a unique luxurious retreat replete with every amenity your heart could desire, while blending seamlessly into the surrounding splendour.
From the comfort of your room, enjoy cosy log fires and sweeping views over Lake Madingofani, where stately eland and dainty reedbuck come down to drink. If you’re a lover of bird life, pack your binoculars – more than one hundred species of bird make the Lake and the surrounding area their home. When you’ve had your fill of peace, superb views of the mountains and natural beauty (admittedly, there’s no such thing as enough), you’ll find a long list of wonderful things to do.
Tumble into the natural rock-hewn swimming pool. Take a hike. Try your hand at fly-fishing (you can get tackle from reception). Rainbow, triploid and brown trout abound. Play tennis. Sail or canoe on the Lake. Take a guided tour on horseback. Indulge in a treatment at the Health and Beauty Salon. Exercise your brain with a little outdoor chess. Play a round of golf on the chipping course. Speaking of chips, there’s nothing like bracing mountain air to titillate the appetite. The Lakeview Restaurant serves hearty country fare and is open daily for lunch and dinner. Castleburn. Like the birds, you’ll want to return.
