A great place to getaway from it all. Great hiking experiences to the base of Cathkin Peak and other great walks designed for the whole family. A lot of activities in and around the park. A definite must for the whole family.

Fantastic time camping at Dragon Peaks this long weekend. There is so much for the children to do, it is essential to pack bikes. I found all the drivers in the resort mindful of children and I was happy to let mine have the freedom to ride around from the stables to the shop to the zip line. The campsites...

Dear Kirsten B Thank you for posting your review. Unfortunately the monkeys have become a nuisance and we request that nobody feeds them but unfortunately this is not always adhered to.

Overall the resort is very clean and the grounds are well kept. A family oriented resort with activities catering for everyone. The pool area is warm and sunny and the water is always clean. The bar stays open late, which is a bonus!

Always good to be back in the Drakensburg area again. We particularly enjoyed the show at Falcon Ridge, walk in the Monks Cowl area and the walk to Fern Forest and Grotto. We didn't get round to going to a show at Drakensburg Boys choir as we usually do - will save it for next time!

Service was excellent and Hlobi made us feel welcome from the start. The rooms were clean and well presented. Location perfect for a getaway far from the city! The tranquility and peacefulness of Dragon Peaks made this weekend one to remember.

We had a wonderful stay. The units are still receiving their finishing touches but we thoroughly enjoyed the modern amenities and white linen. The units are spacious and the patio overlooking the dam with its built in braai was a lovely and peaceful setting to observe the beauty of the surroundings and spend an afternoon with great company and a...

We have just spent two weekends at this resort. One in a chalet which was perfect and one in a drakensberg which is better for 2 adults and children rather than 4 adults due to the noise as of course there are no walls.

Fantastic Resort. Unfortunately a little too much rain, but did not prevent us for having fun. Camp sites should have private ablutions available on some of the stands. The hiking trails are also well directed and well kept
