Beautiful location and family friendly, lots to do for the kids and they allowed us to take our dog. Had an absolutely wonderful time with friendly staff and great service. Everything you need is available from the local superette.

We have just spent two weekends at this resort. One in a chalet which was perfect and one in a drakensberg which is better for 2 adults and children rather than 4 adults due to the noise as of course there are no walls.

Fantastic Resort. Unfortunately a little too much rain, but did not prevent us for having fun. Camp sites should have private ablutions available on some of the stands. The hiking trails are also well directed and well kept

Spent one night on the camp sites, good value overall. The ablutions are a bit limited with only 1 having hot water but they were clean and well maintained. Overall the site could do with a renovation as a bit dated but as far as value for money goes it works.

Dear Kylew347, Thank you kindly for the review. In order for us to control electricity consumption and prevent wastage we do keep certain ablutions closed during quite periods. I am glad that this did however not detract from your overall experience with us and look forward to hosting you again in the near future.

Such a beaut setting with loads to do which is wonderful, but sadly spoilt by disgusting ablutions, over crowded camp sites, a terribly run down swimming pool and rip off "have to pay to do everything prices"- Surprised so full - Suppose people compromise because of the amazing things to do - Will not return

Always a pleasure returning to the Berg. Good value for money accomodation. Plenty of activities for both adults and kids. Grounds maintained well and always clean. Will return at our next visit to the Berg.

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay in the log cabins, but very glad it was not during school holidays as we enjoy a quiet time when in the Berg. But it looks a great place if you have young kids, very safe & lots for them to do.

I usually stay here when i visit the central Drakensberg once a month. Their gates don't close early so you don't have to rush to get there before closing time. I have stayed in the Drakensberger houses as well as the camp site. The staff are always very friendly. The restaurant food is very tasty and not expensive. The location...
