Didima camp is located absolutely fabulous. RIght in the middle of 3000m mountains where you have astonishing views. The lodges are really integrated in nature. Personnel is nice (not over nice), food is good (not overly done), breakfast is ok (if you like english and are on-time!!). The most negative aspect of Didima was the quality of the bathroom.....

After hearing bad and good reviews about Didima, we decided to judge for ourselves and go for a couple of nights. First impression was good but after being there a while, started seeing all the faults which is such a pity as it has the potential of becoming a great place with the right management. We received a warm welcome... More

Stayed over at Didima over a weekend on returning from Midlands Meander. Good rooms, thatch roofed units looked recently refurb'ed. Was quiet and well maintained. Self catering options and also restaurant available for breakfast, lunch & dinner. Road into Didima was a bit concerning with small kids trying to open the car doors. Camp itself was safe with visible security.... More

Didima is a unique property, no doubt. Definitely a one of a kind and has a certain mystic magic about it. Reaching Didima is the most challenging aspect of this hotel and being prepared will reduce much anxiety. Also come prepared not to leave until you really, really have to. The 40 kilometers from Winterton takes about an hour to... More

We were pleasantly surprised with Didima camp- not wanting to stay in a typical resort or hotel this was a very warm and cozy setup in a lovely chalet. We found everything top notch and would recommend Didima camp to anyone who is interested in visiting the Drakensberg and has a bit of a sense for adventure! Lovely breakfasts as... More

though there was some kind of official meeting of politicians we were lucky to be the only ´private´ people (in one of the bigggest houses!) and enjoy the peace and quietness of this place. we felt very welcome!

Beautiful setting spoilt by lack of maintenance and bad F&B management: beds were old and soft; hot water just trickled out the shower; old shape TV with poor reception; no Wi-Fi but good enough cell phone signal. Breakfast was sparse and they kept running out of items and didn't replace them. Suppers were good, but a bit disappointing not to... More

The most breathtaking location - awesome views all around including the front window/door/patio of our lodge. Terrific area for walking or just enjoying the beauty of creation all around you. Lodges are externally of a unique design and appealing. Inside, ours was dated and tired, poor quality fixtures and fittings but clean. Restaurant was ok, staff were excellent. I got... More

The camp is located in an amazingly beautiful valley. We received a room without a view which was very disappointing. The room with a kitchen a very handy if you intend to make some meals yourself as it is equipped with everything except a oven.
