Resort Review: Drakensberg Gardens Golf & Spa Resort, KZN


Nestled in a valley at the southern end of the Drakensberg lies a resort which boasts that it is a ‘one-of-a-kind retreat for guests to reconnect, relax and unwind’.

The Drakensberg Gardens Golf & Spa Resort is situated in a scenic 860 hectare World Heritage site, and between the hotel, self-catering units, golf course, spa, bowling lawns, swimming pools and conference venues, there’s also a caravan park.

This resort really has something for everyone. If you are into nature and the outdoors, there are beautiful hiking trails, mountain bike tracks, and fishing. For sports enthusiasts, there are tennis courts, lawn bowls, putt-putt, archery, snooker tables, cricket nets, 18-hole golf, and squash. For water lovers there are swimming pools, hot pools and boating on the river. Animal lovers can go for horse rides, and children can enjoy the animal farm. And for those into the life of luxury, try the spa, or one of the four bars and five restaurants.

To get to the caravan park is a breeze: the entire road up to the resort is tarred. The site has 25 electrified, demarcated caravan stands, and 16 stands without electricity for tents.
