Conor O’Hagan Ward recently took over as General Manager of Dragon Peaks Mountain Resort, reporting directly to the Tungay family – the proprietors.
Conor hails from the hotel industry where he saw “action” with the Southern Sun group initially and then went on his own.
He is no stranger to the Drakensberg, having run two popular hotels in the area. He has also been a managing partner in a Game Lodge and Reserve in the Pietermaritzburg area before semi-retiring to a B&B in the Eastern Cape, where he also ran a small safari business.
Conor is a keen off-roader and spends much of his leisure time in southern Africa where he finds his greatest passion, wild life, in their natural surrounds.
Conor and his wife Molly now live in the Champagne Valley, a stone’s throw from Dragon Peaks Mountain Resort.
