The Cavern is home to Bushman paintings, age-old rock carvings and an interesting cannibal history – all in a natural setting, where bird, animal, tree and flower species flourish. It is also home to The Royal Drakensberg Primary School, founded in 2007 to uplift the local community. The journey to The Cavern is a beautiful country drive – 3.5-hours from Jo’burg or 3-hours from Durban.

Fondly known as ‘The Resort of Many Happy Returns’, The Cavern is a place where families bond, friendships are formed and memories are made. It is a special, tucked-away romantic getaway for couples, a gentle place to find quiet and solitude, as well as a safe and child-friendly resort with a range of fun activities for families.

Enjoy a quiet read in one of our attractive lounges, an elegant tea on the lawn, a drink in the Cave Bar or choose a wine from our cellar to enhance your dining experience.

    i would love to recommend this accommodation to any family. we had such an awesome stay. the place is beautiful and so are the staff. well mannered, rooms are excellent, the food was well prepared and very pleasurable to the palate. will definitely return, just a bit of a walk up to Goco’s rooms but overall an excellent stay. thank you to the staff, chef and especially S’bonelo the gentleman who took care of feeding us.

    well done…..

  2. Hi. 2 questions please.
    Is there cell phone reception that is consistent enough if we nee to work at the resort?
    Is there a gym on site? If so, what facilities? Are there spinning bikes?

    Many thanks,

    1. Hi Neena
      Cell phone signal is pretty good. This week there have been issues with Vodacom but we do also have WiFi which is quite reliable.
      Unfortunately we do not have a gym. We have wonderful mountains and fabulous hiking and mountain biking.
      Best wishes.

    1. Hi Steph
      Many thanks for the message. Regrettably, no pets allowed. We have 5 gorgeous hounds but they do not socialise well with other dogs.
      Our best wishes

    1. Hi Nola
      Unfortunately we don’t. We have a hot spot in our main lounge.
      Best wishes,
