We attended a wedding at Giant's Castle and stayed in a chalet with a spectacular view down the valley towards the mountain that gave the camp its name. Giant's Castle calls itself a "camp" but the housing is all in separate cabins with either a mountain or a garden view. The furnishings are comfortable and practical. They include a wood burning fireplace, full kitchen, and porch or patio. Satisfying meals are available in the central restaurant. But the real story here are the trails, including one to some caves that have 2000 year-old drawings by the valleys original inhabitants, the San people. We took a guided walk with Nic Shaw who runs a local environmental education center. Nic is extremely knowledgeable and made the 45-minute walk perfectly fascinating. Ask if he's available and if he is, sign up for his guided walk.
