I had high expectancy of this resort as I made this a half way stop from KZN South Coast to Gauteng. Used the B&B option and also had dinner. The dinner and breakfast was terrible and not prepared by a chef - the food was prepared from packets and not fresh ingredients and not even properly warmed up. I will... More

I have found this to be the most value for money child friendly venue in the Drakensburg. With its heated pools, supertube, animal farm, playground, putt putt etc etc the children never run out of things to do. Whether you're camping or staying in a chalet, the facilities are very nice and are cleaned very frequently. The staff is friendly... More

Me and my wife and friends had a very enjoyable stay at ATKV Drakensville. The staff are friendly and very helpfull. They organised us a guided tour to the boesman tekeninge in the hills above the resort about 8km hike to the rockart and back. The shop has a little restaurant with the best double thick milkshakes by far. The... More

Holidaying in South Africa with friends and family we booked 3 nights in two cabins over Easter, which proved to be a disappointing experience for all concerned. The cabins were of a very basic standard and the poorest accommodation of our whole S.A. holiday. It was however one of the most expensive. Our shower blocked after day one, flooding the... More

My family of consisting of 5 people visited this resort. We visit different resorts annually in Drakensberg but this resort is the worst. Upon arrival we were given a welcome booklet which was only in Afrikaans. We had no idea of what was on offer at the resort. We asked for an English version and was told that they don't... More

Well laid out with many facilities for families and day facilities are perfect. This resort is one of the best in the area as it caters for almost any type of groups and can host any functions with the facilities provided. Staff are very helpful and cordial.

By comparison, this takes first place in extensive services to holiday makers. There are all levels of accommodation and our BnB rooms were spacious, clean, comfortable and with views to the mountains. Walls were somewhat thin so get an end room. I met caravaners who stay here for the mountain air for lengthy periods. There are three magnificent pools for... More

With one of the most amazing backdrops in the world, this resort is situated at the foothills of the Drakensberg Mountains - a 200-kilometre-long mountainous wonderland and world heritage site, with a wealth of biological diversity and medicine for the soul. We took a group of children from school to the resort and I was pleasantly surprised with service provided.... More

Nice place to go with a group or with your family. The camping and caravan site is excellent and the chalets are very comfortable. This resort has three big pools and one of them is heated, just perfect for winter vacation. There is a good restaurant in the premises and a grocery store where you can buy any thing you... More

I was a little bit worried about camping in the middle of nowhere but my fears soon faided when my family and I (8 of us) arrived for a week in our Caravan. The resort is located within a beautiful setting surrounded by mountains. So many activities to keep you busy or just relaxing in the beautiful surroundings. A definite... More
