I had a great time at Amphitheatre Backpackers, and took an amazing trip to the nearby country of Lesotho. The Lodge caters to all budgets from camping to suites. The scenery is beautiful, but the fantastic scenery comes with being far from a store or shop. They have a restaurant and bar that offers great food at decent prices. I met some wonderful people at the lodge and the trip I took was educational and beautiful, I met many people doing trips on their own, but I didn't have a car so it was nice to have a guided option. The Drakensberg mountains were a great way to finish my trip.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The venue is really amazing. The lodge is found on a stunning 300 hectares of land near the foot of the Amphitheatre (Royal Natal National Park) and Cathedral Peak. The Mpande River weaves through the lands. There are buck, small mammals and a fantastic array of wild birds near the 2 dams and a picture postcard view from the lawn, a 360 degree panorama that takes in the entire Northern range from the Amphitheatre all the way to Cathkin Peak. The lodge is a base from which you can explore different sections and all the highlights of the Drakensberg Park each day. Built from stone, thatch and wood, the place is like an artist's sculpture with stained glass, metal and wooden carvings, mosaics and beautiful indigenous rockeries. ... more less
