Vergezient Lodge, Drakensberg Mountain Retreat

The ideal escape to relax and unwind.  This is a beautiful, spacious lodge offering delicious home style meals.  It's best described as a retreat.  A place to reconnect with yourself, your wife or your family.  Play board games, read books or stare at the fire with a glass of good red wine in hand as you reflect on the next chapter.

The Lodge has 9 rooms and offers a dinner, bed and breakfast rate. The rates vary per room and can be found on the rates page. We offer a fully stocked bar and can arrange lunch at the lodge. 

Vergezient Lodge with its numerous lounges and fireplaces is comfortably furnished and blends rustic charm with old fashioned elegance. The Lodge has tastefully decorated en-suite bedrooms and a number of bedrooms have their own lounges; some with fireplaces.
