The hotel is built with the actual mountain rock face as part of the building! As a family of climbers we spent the next few days bouldering and climbing around! The spot is great within easy walk of original bush man cave paintings. Plenty of walks to suit all abilities our group ranged in age from 7 to 85. Breakfast...

Our one night stay in a 6 bed chalet was perfect. The chalet was well equipped and spotlessly clean. Just a few small insects (appearing dead?) in the bedding - in the bush, not a problem. Many foreign visitors enjoying the exceptional beauty of the "Berg". Gardens beautifully maintained. Breakfast at the restaurant was lacking (it was a lot better...

Glorious location in the mountains, lovely walk along the river, reasonable breakfast. Inside they're comfortable and spacious (we had the three bedroom one). If you're self catering as we were, you'll need to bring all your food.

Amazing experience surrounded by some of the most majestic mountains in the world. Lucky enough to see snow on the mountains. Accommodation we stayed in was basic and slightly weathered - but neat and clean, didn't need more. The breakfast included in the rate was really good, a nice surprise!

This is beautiful part of the country and the scenery is spectacular. There are loads of walks and hiking trails. You can choose between self catering or eat at the restaurant. It also offers a bird hide that offers some amazing photo opportunities. You have to book the use of the hide before you go. You will also require a...

We drove here from near Winterton - it is a quite a long drive and some of the roads are unmade, although in good condition in dry weather. At the visitor centre you can pay a small fee as a day visitor and buy a map of day hikes in the park. We did the Berg View walk (7km and...

As a family with a 5-year old child, we had to take a 4 bed mountain view chalet. The whole setup of the camp and the terrace are really cool and we loved to have a braii in the evening. Thank God I read the Tripadvisor reviews before and had made a note that it is essential to buy groceries...

My compliments to the Natal Parks Board for an outstanding venue. The quality of the superb accommodation was unequalled during our recent four-week tour round South Africa. There was absolutely nothing we found lacking or sub-standard - perfection right down to the little touches. Due to its location the park has many natural advantages and the scenic beauty is legendary...

Tucked into the folds of the mountain this is a great camp. The units are brilliantly designed to maximize the mountain views and privacy from other units. Very comfortably furnished and fantastic to have a fireplace in the unit, not to mention a complementary bale of wood and coal. The walks from this camp are spectacular.
