As you approach the Cavern Resort & Spa, in the Northern Drakensberg, the gentle arms of nature immediately cradle you. It is all around you; hillsides of waving grass hiding families of resting Mountain Reedbuck, steep rocky ravines with tumbling waterfalls, Protea-covered slopes, secret places within the forested kloofs. The hotel itself nestles happily at the head of the valley, hidden from the main berg but offering grand views of faraway sandstone outcrops and spectacular sunrises.

The friendly reception staff welcome you and from then it just gets better and better. The food is so good you are tempted to try everything on the menu. Children are welcome, with special entertainment offered daily, while well-trained nannies are on hand in the kid’s dining room and for baby-sitting duties.

With all that delicious food, you really need exercise and there is a huge choice of things to do; from gentle strolls to really stiff hikes (your guide will serve drinks and crunchies along the way); tennis, bowls and horse riding; croquet and volleyball, swimming and great mountain bike trails. With a 9-hole golf course and Adventure Centre down the road, this is the perfect holiday destination in the Northern Drakensberg.
