I always come back at least twice a year. The view of the mountainsite and the tranquility of sitting on the verandah listening to the silence hearing the pool waterfall gives me peace. The staff are always friendly and the Spa pamper treatments are an added bonus. The rooms are clean sheets crisp and white. I love the lounge area... More

We went there because we needed a place to relax and be away from the city. Bushmans Nek is the place if you want tranquillity. The staff is friendly, kind and always willing to assist. However the lodge is outdated and dirty. The rooms are small. Besides that the place is paradise. They have the most beautiful scenery. It is... More

A beautiful location. Very quiet and tranquil. The facilities on site are vast and well maintained. There is approximately a 30km drive on a dirt road to get to the resort and although that sounds daunting the road is well kept. It was dry when I went, not sure how bad it gets in rainy weather.

Bushmans nek is situated in a lovely area in the southern Drakensberg. The staff was friendly at the resort ,food and drinks very good and they even had a braai the one evening for all guests to meet each other. We will certainly be back in the near future for another visit.

Whether you're an introvert or extrovert you'll feel comfortable here - plenty of opportunities to socialise with other guests or to do your own thing. We found the management team to be friendly and interested in their guests. The view from the resort is of course exquisite!
