Hidden amongst trees and shrubs, these privately situated cottages are within walking distance of one another, Phinda and Thokozela cottages are adjacent to each other whilst all the other cottages are free standing. Don’t be surprised to see an antelope or rabbit walk passed the cottage, as they enjoy the open spaces around the cottages, during your visit.

Enjoy an evening sitting around an open fire at the “mini Stone Henge” under a wonderful starry Milky Way, with a glass of your favorite, listening to the unique African night sounds such as jackal barking, Owls hooting, Night Jar bird calls as well as the Mountain Reedbucks sharp whistle emanating from the hill slopes near to the cottages.
Experience a booming Drakensberg Thunderstorm, also nicknamed the “Dragons wrath” as the Dragon(or “Draken”) bellows fire across the skies and the sound similar to that of a thousand drums reverberate from the top of the escarpment, you have to see it to believe it!!
