What a treat to get away to the beautiful Drakensberg after the leisure travel ban was lifted. We spent the Women's Day long weekend at Wits End in a very comfortable, well equipped cottage with gorgeous view of the mountains, a dam for the fishermen, a playground and an awesome rockpool for the children, whose favorite part of the day was feeding the donkeys!

Wits End cottages are spacious, set well apart for peace and privacy, and well equipped, except that there are no extras like tea, coffee, sugar - marauding monkeys are probably the reason! We liked tiny supermarket just below the choir school, and bought excellent meat at a farm stall, but if you’re on a budget, come well aupplied as you don’t want to waste precious time driving all the way back to Winterton. We had a glorious view of the mountains from our deep verandah. There are lovely walks on the premises through different types of vegetation, and a dam with great opportunities for birdwatching. We did beautiful hikes a short drive away at Monk’s Cowl and the Drakensberg Sun - Graham and Estelle were great at providing us with advice and maps. We wished we could have stayed for longer!
