Trails well marked to bushmans cave however you do have to pay to see the paintings. We also walked along the river bank where we had a picnic on the rocks. We finished our hike with some refeshments on the deck at the resort.

The accommodation was perfectly fine and clean, however in the Giant´s Castle Camp there are houses with very good view and other houses a bid hidden behind others without a good view at all. In this case we had a hidden one. Beside this location everything else was very good. The kitchen was completely equipped with cutlery, plates, glasses and pots.
There is a restaurant with good and affordable food including breakfast and dinner (reservation in advance is advised). Some of the staff was friendly and efficient others unfriendly and inefficient, but this seems to be quite normal in the most of South African Nationalparks. We could well cope with the situation.

Giants castle camp is one of the best lodges available in the Drakensberg. The cottages are well kitted out and the location is simply stunning. The last review does it no justice, people like this are the problem not the accommodation.Vanessapdb an "insect in the room", please this is Africa! This is a hikers paradise with many well trodden trails to choose from. The staff are friendly and extremely helpful. Apart from hiking they also have amazing San paintings as well as countless sparkling pools to keep you cool and refreshed. To top it all off it is one of the few places one can see the majestic eland antelope in their natural surroundings.
I have been coming here regularly with my groups over the last two years and have never had any issues both with the rooms or the restaurant. I highly recommend this camp especially the mountain cottages with their spectacular views. Also the roads have been redone and any vehicle will get there.

Room Tip: The garden rooms are very nice but the mountain cottages are amazing.

I'm writing this while I'm still here which hopefully reflects how bad the situation really is.

We arrived yesterday and found a made in our bed. In the other room a family member found a plastic candy wrap under his pillow. This morning I had cold water during the shower and the water was brown. Then my family member found another insect in his room.

The house was disgustig and never in my entire life have I seen a hotel/lodge like this. Do yourself a favor and go somewhere else.

I know that having a pleasant stay somewhere is subjective. But these things are objective statements, not opinions. I didn't enjoy breakfast or dinner, but that could have been just me. I also thought the house smelled horrible, but again this is subjective. It's not worth it though, there are beautiful hotels in Giants Castle, please don't take the risk.

Stayed: July 2017

This is a lovely place. clean mountain air, clear flowing stream, beautiful scenery, great walks , Bird watching, history and floral species. Ancient Bushman (San)paintings. Thatched Cottages are basic but very comfortable, with a feeling of privacy. Staff pleasant and helpful.

Room Tip: They all are in a garden setting, most with views of mountains. Can be chilly in the evenings
