Located high in the glorious Cathkin Park area of the central Drakensberg Mountains, is the Drakensberg Sun Resort, one of the most striking places to stay in South Africa. There’s a real sense of comfort and warmth throughout the resort thanks to the extensive use of natural materials, polished wood and rich earthy colors. The rooms are beautifully appointed and offer uninterrupted views of the dramatic landscape that lies just beyond the windowpane. It’s like waking up in paradise.
The Resort’s restaurant overlooks the beautiful private lake and offers an excellent buffet and a-la-carte menu. For those suffering ‘calorie guilt’, don’t fret; there’s also a wide range of action activities from boating, tennis, squash, volleyball, as well as spectacular mountain hikes, exhilarating mountain biking and two splendid outdoor pools. However, if you prefer a more tranquil and relaxing start to your day, escape to the calming ambiance of the Spoilt Green Eco-Spa.
But this is Africa and that means it begs to be explored. A great way to do this is to head off, or rather up, into the treetops with the Drakensberg Canopy Tour to enjoy a birds-eye view of the magnificent world around (or beneath) you. Part of that world includes the breathtaking Spioenkop Dam and Nature Reserve. The dam offers you the unforgettable opportunity to see white rhino, giraffe, zebra and wildebeest in their natural habitat. Truly sensational! That’s why it’s said that staying at Drakensberg Sun Resort will bring dreams to life.
