Lake Naverone first saw me in the spring of 2008. Since then I’ve been back five times and am planning at least one further stay this year. It is my place to rejuvenate, drink in the beauty of the mountains and sleep soundly.
The resort is on a large estate in the Southern Drakensberg, 30km into the mountains from Underberg. It consists of 21 well-spaced self-catering cottages of various sizes around a lake (man-made, I think) on a tributary of the uMzimkulu River. The lake is stocked with trout, and sometimes you can see their large, lazy cohorts (bream? pike? something else? can’t remember) drifting along in the crystal-clear water.
This place for me is all about the quiet, the clean air and the beauty but there is scope for considerably more physically energetic activities than I undertake Power boats are not allowed thank goodness, but each cottage has a rowing boat and there are a few paddle boats as well. There is the fishing, there are horses to ride, and the resort abuts the Garden Castle Nature Reserve – the most southerly portion of the uKhahlamba-Drakensberg Park. So, good walking and hiking for the energetic.
