The venue is lovely with facilities to rival good hotels in the area, but service is lacking. I assume this boils down to a lack of training and/or suitable supervision. The rooms are large, and the grounds are magnificent with a pool, tennis court and wonderful hikes. The food is adequate and breakfast is a disaster. On the two mornings... More

We spent a weekend in this wonderful camp. We arrived in the dark in the middle of winter and the room itself was warm enough that we didn't need extra heating - this in the mountains in winter! The unit was spacious and very well set out, water was instantly hot, and the bed very comfortable. It seems as though... More

I think that Didima deserves a 3 and half rating, but the option is 3 or 4. Didima is in a stunning location in the Drakensberg, a more beautiful place is hard to find. Price wise, Didima is much cheaper than the stunning Cathedral Peak Hotel, however it isn't necessarily cheap. We have stayed in many cheaper places that had... More

Having visited most of the KZN Drakensberg camps and resorts, I can truly say that the Didima camp site is the best we have seen. The actual resort is beautiful and offers great facilities. The campsite offers electrical plug points at all sites and the camp is truly clean. Unfortunately hot water is a big problem and not always available... More

This must be one of the most beautifully set places in Drakensberg, right next to Cathedral Peak Hotel, with plenty hiking around. Unfortunally we made mistake assuming that the place will be well catered due to amount of tourists it attracts - which unfortunately was not the case. Choice of food and service in restaurant was absolutely pathetic, with staff... More

We stayed 3 weeks in SA and Didima camp was the best for us / even better than Safari etc /. We stayed there for 3 nites, came in rainy weather and even it was stunning. Private chalets with small terrace, bbq place and fire place... perfect. We enjoyed our days and nites. Went for hiking as well. Chalets are... More

Located in the middle of the Drakensberge national park the camp is wonderful for day hikes. The rooms are spacious and the chalets fit beautifully into the landscape. But the service and especially food is really bad. Make sure to bring your own food and get a self-catering chalet or drive the 3km up to the Cathedral Peak Hotel. Don't... More

My sister recommended Didima as my wedding venue. It was absolutely stunning!I still get compliments about the venue. Family and friends all tell me that they are definitely coming back just to relax and enjoy the berg. I found the staff friendly and very helpful. If you enjoy the outdoors with the comforts of clean and pleasant rooms-this is for... More

Stayed in a chalet for 2 nights and really enjoyed it. It's a great base for hiking and exploring the area - the reception were helpful in suggesting routes and the shop had maps on sale. The chalets are scattered on the hillside to make the most of the views and let in lots of natural light. The accommodation is... More
