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

We have just spent the most awesome weekend at Giants Castle with a group of friends. The staff are an amazing bunch, we had a problem with having no water on Friday evening, we phoned the number listed and within a few minutes, had a delightful lady by the name of Khanyo who came to our chalet and told us...

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.

South Africa got beauty, winter experience at the Berg was a delight. Other than winter snow, expected very little from Giant Castle reserve. Didn't even know it was a 30,000 plus hectares big. Chalets are spacious & well furnished, with shower/bath, lounge area, fireplace & kitchen appliances. Scenic views overlooking mountain range are splendid. Especially enjoyed many picnic spots along... More

We stayed in Chalet 30 which has the most divine view of the valley and the mountains. The accommodation was simple whilst clean and neat and not overly priced. Food in the restaurant was wholesome and tasty. The hike to World's View is a must it simply takes your breath away in more than one sense. What a delight -... More

We took a scenic drive to Giants Castle Resort this morning and we were really glad we did. Only about 30 odd Kms from White Mountain Lodge, the drive was spectacular. The majestic Drakensburg Mountains host Giants Castle Resort which offers so much to tourists and locals. Hiking, fishing, scenic walks, mountain climbing, etc make it a fun family place... More

We had a nice chalet for 2 people with wonderful mountain view. These chalets are also providing enough privacy compared to the garden chaltes. There are numerous walks from easy ones to high mountain walks. The personell was always helpful. The restaurant (dinner and breakfast) was not stellar, but ok for the price - service was good.

There are two criteria that should be met for any good trip to the Drakensberg. The most important of the two is location: if you are want to spend time close to this majestic mountain range, make sure you stay as close to it as possible. There are many places that you can stay at in the northern and central... More

We had a fantastic 4 nights stay at Giant's Castle camp and I can thoroughly recommend it. (It's wrongly described as a camp really - far more up-market). The chalets are very comfortable, and we had a mountain view which was magnificent. The meals from the restaurant were delicious, but the facilities to cook were perfectly adequate if you manage...

Really unspoilt beauty surrounds, Majestic Berg Mountains, Crystal clear River, Fauna & Flora. We stayed here for 3 nights and could have stayed for 3 weeks! The warm welcome from Reception set the tone to a most enjoyable stay. The room we booked had a mountain view and was perfect with its own braai which we used quite a few... More
