My wife and I stayed here for three nights early in February 2014. The 60k or so from the main road along the potholed lane were quite challenging, but the camp itself was a revelation. Thatched bungalows in a quite stunning setting faced the river and the mountains. Accommodation was clean, slightly dated; service was good: we asked for the... More

Absolutely wonderful view from our chalet which faced Giants Castle Mountain. Chalet was rather dated but basically OK. Restaurant service and food were both fine. Great place, remote location, good walking,

It does seem a long way to drive, and yes there are plenty of holes in the road. We were too early to check in so went off to walk to the caves to see the rock art. Its a longer walk than you think, esp in the heat and it was the first we'd seen. There's a guide who... More

What a location! Tranquil, scenic and many, many walks and hikes with various lengths and degrees of difficulty. The cottages, equipment are a bit dated and a bit tlc would make it a 5/5. Restaurant is good and the shop will provide you with basic food stuff. No fresh food. Stay are very helpful and friendly.m

The road to Giant's Castle Camp had many pot holes, some very big and deep. In the national park the road was much better. The cabins we lived in (#28 and #38) were spacious, well equipped, very clean; #38 had a grand view of the mountain range. We slept very well (in spite of the thin air - the camp... More

We stayed three nights in the camp and enjoyed a truly beautiful area, but were a little bit disappointed my the accommodation which could do with some investment. From time to time, the staff living close by played loud music which isn't really in keeping with the area, but it was quiet at night. Whilst the walks are beautiful, the... More

We stayed in Chalet nr 16 and found the accomadation very clean with a well equipped kitchen. My husband is a photographer and we spent 2 wonderful mornings in the Vulture Hide, we also found...

The self catering chalets are well appointed and spacious with comfortable beds. We found the staff friendly and helpful - it seems the KZN/Ezemvelo staff are well chosen for being friendly and helpful. The buffet breakfast included was good, not outstanding, and the evening buffet we did not regard as good value. However the overall experience was very good -... More

Six of us stayed in the Red Hot Poker chalet in September 2013. We loved it. The views were breathtaking, the hiking wonderful, and the Bushman paintings amazing. We saw baboons, dassies and eland while hiking. Our meals were all self catered, so we only had tea at the restaurant, but it was quite nice. The chalet was comfortable and... More

My husband and I stayed in the honeymoon suite at Giants Castle Camp for two days. It was the best decision we made! The road to Giants Castle is not fanastic at all and we were quite put-off by it. The potholes are terrible and it will be better if it was a gravel road but once we got to... More
