Your Accommodation

Extensive use of natural materials, polished wood and rich, earthy colours make the Drakensberg Sun one of the most striking country resorts in South Africa. With the accent on comfort your luxurious holiday home offers a fully equipped kitchen, a spacious living area and bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms. Each beautifully decorated chalet or apartment offers a fairytale view of a picturesque lake set against mountain ranges. The spacious chalets are set against the backdrop of the Cathkin Peak and nestle beside a tranquil lake. Indoors there’s under-carpet heating and a roaring fire to keep you cosy during the cold winter evenings.


The resort offers a wide range of activities including fishing, boating, sundowner cruises on the lake, pitch and putt golf, tennis, squash, volleyball and mountain biking. Take a guided hike or horse ride and experience the true majesty of the Drakensberg. If you fancy a round of golf, the excellent Champagne Sports Golf Course is just five minutes away.


A superb restaurant overlooks the resort’s private lake and offers an excellent buffet and a la carte menu. Enjoy a delicious alfresco lunch on the balcony, a picnic in the mountains, or a braai under the African sky. Before retiring for the night, visit “The Flying Trout”, a merry little pub that exudes warmth and friendliness.
