ALPINE CHARM IN THE BREATHTAKING BERG

Little Switzerland really is something special, from the beautifully manicured grounds, to the main building with authentic thatched roofing and local wood framings and furnishings, each with stories of their own. Revel in serene silence far from traffic and meetings, enjoy our hearty buffet carveries, crackling log fires, and perhaps even some pampering at our spa. Locally known as “the Berg”, the iconic mountain peaks of the Drakensberg offer every excitement, from serious hiking to gentle strolls through forested glades and over 6000 San paintings, which are secretly exhibited amongst its craggy rocks. Venture out nearby and you’ll discover the Royal Natal National Park, an addictively beautiful place far from the well-trodden tourist paths, where you can climb, bike, ride horseback, fish and spot birds and wildlife to your heart’s content. Relaxation and comfort are yours for the taking at this affordable family accommodation, with plenty of outdoor activities for both kids and adults to complete your stay and guarantee your return.
