For a lodge set in such a stunning part of the world what can you expect for $100 a night. Not this. It really was surprisingly good as we’d read that SA park accommodation was sometimes not well looked after or equipped. Not here. It had clean bedclothes, bathroom and towels and was well furnished, well looked after, equipped with... More

My partner and I visited Giants Castle resort on Saturday 18 October 2014 and arrived with limited expectations. We were pleasantly surprised at the facilities and our chalet. We stayed in Chalet 30 and its by far the best with sweeping views of the gorgeous Giants Castle. It has easy access from the parking area and was spotlessly clean and... More

If u want to fully appreciate the beauty of this mountains Giant's Castle is the wright place at the wright price. Charlet 30 wich is a mountain facing Charlet offers the most uninterrupted and peacefull views around you. While planning for this trip to drakensberg we initially wanted to book a helicopter ride over the mountains but after hiking to... More

We spent last weekend at Rock lodge at Giants Castle. To start with the positives, it has the most exquisite uninterrupted views from all its windows. The three bedrooms are comparable in terms of facilities. All have similar bathrooms and all have lovely views. In addition, each bedroom has two double beds in it, which makes the accommodation extremely flexible.... More

We stayed 2 nights at Giants Castle camp. From the reception to the chalet, we were impressed. The management cared and you could feel it. Breakfast is included and was very enjoyable. the chalets were well appointed for self catering. There is no oven but a large microwave with convection oven and outside braai. Our chalet had a mountain view... More

Recently spent two nights on a group tour at Giant's Castle camp, surrounded by the most magnificent scenery, interesting and challenging walks, beautiful cave paintings - a great place to be. Unfortunately the camp itself leaves a lot to be desired - uneven, damaged camp roads, with many of the lights supposed to be illuminating them not working, making night... More

We never stayed here but did visit the restaurant for lunch while visiting the nature reserve. The location at the very edge of an escarpment is awesome. The view outside takes your breath away. After that the decor and food, both excellent, are almost inconsequential. We made a mental note to stay at the resort if we ever visit that... More

I would have given 5 stars if the road wasn't in such a terrible state. Watch out for the potholes! Make sure you have enough time to do some hiking, there are a couple of beautiful routes. We did one of the shorter routes and saw quite a lot of game while we walked.
