First time Drakensberg Breakaway

Drakensberg retreat truly is a hidden gem, far away from the hustle and bustle of the city. The hiking trails have spectacular views and the staff are very helpful. Gerrie & Elna thank you for all your help!!!

Very Happy

I was very happy during my stay at Mountain Retreat with my dog. The owners are absolutely friendly and helpful. There are awesome hiking trails around and it is a beautiful atmosphere around with all the wild horses and other animals. A recommended place for everybody who is looking for nature and time for him/herself. The cook is excellent as well.


Everything we hoped for

Breathtaking views that can’t be captured in a photograph. Excellent, friendly service. Delicious food, prepared the South African way. Lovely hiking trails for all levels of experience. Absolute value for money! Would go back in a heartbeat:)



The Retreat is a wonderful one-off. It is isolated, on the very edge of a plateau with extraordinary views of the whole of the central and northern Drakensburg. The grounds are vast offering extensive walks. The building is big, with extensive facilities such as swimmng pool, billiards room. Catering is very good indeed. The only downside is its isolation down a track after 11km of very rough unmetalled rural roadway. Better as a beautiful retreat than as a touring base to pop in and out of.


Beautiful scenery. Settup for silence and relaxation

Amazing views, great hiking trails, good food and comfy pleasant rooms. Our Beagles loved it too! The ultimate place to get away from everything and absorb the silence and magnificence of the mountains. If you take your pets along, be sure to treat them for ticks to protect them on the awesome hiking trails.


Hidden Gem

At the end of a 14km dirt road off the main road through the Berg, we were pleasantly surprised to find the Drakensberg Retreat on the end of a mountain overlooking a gorgeous valley, with the escarpment of mountains in view. Stunning, with mare and foal to greet us. Wonderful in not being a large commercial hotel, it offers all the comforts and service you’d expect, but with a more personal touch. We loved our stay and were thrilled with our discovery. Thank ou to Sean and the staff for ensuring our two nights with you were so enjoyable.
