    DO NOT RECOMMEND. I advance paid at a very high rate and even tried to reconfirm. The Central reservations acknowledge they tahy received my request to reconfirm "but alias" were unable to do so.

    So after traveling on four airline flights one of which was 17 hours they were full, rude, uncaring and left me standing holding my bags at the front desk for hours..

    BOTTOM LINE. THEY NEVER WELCOMED ME AS A GUEST. They never gave me a guest card for the week..and I would never remotely consider staying at a Southern Sun Resort again.

    Unique Quality: There are wonderful hikes from the property and nearby at Monks Cowl. Nice setting. As this is Africa, do expect power outages..some were six hours duration. Far as I know, they only offer a buffet as food.

    Directions: Drakensberg Mountains Caitkin Peak

Well clear of the beaten...

by Joeplaboem

Well clear of the beaten track, nestling in the foothills of the mighty Berg, the Drakensberg Sun offers a charming retreat from which to experience the tranquility, exhilaration, and scenic splendour, unique to the Drakensberg. Surrounded by magnificent Blue Gum trees casting a dappled light across the Resort's tumbling lawns, this charming resort opens a world of discovery and a chance to rediscover each other.
Forget the prices enjoy it for a few days Revel in the luxury of your own holiday home which offers a fully equipped kichenette, a spacious living area and bedrooms with en suite bathrooms. Decked out in fabrics and fittings which capture the true spirit of the Berg, each exquisitely decorated apartment offers a fairy tale view of a picturesque lake set against a fine display of nature's very own crusted jewels: the Cathkin Peak, Sterkhorn, Dragon's Back and Spielberg mountains.

Beautifully appointed and spacious self catering chalets set against the backdrop of the Cathkin Peak or beside the tranquil lake with sprawling lawns are an alternative option to the luxury apartments. Indoors there's under-carpet heating and a roaring fire to keep you cosy, with extra touches such as hi-fi equipment and microwaves to make life more comfortable.

The restaurant of Drakensberg Sun Hotel
Lakeview restaurant.
A sumptuous buffet and delicious a la carte dishes are served at the Lakeview Restaurant, which as its name implies, overlooks the resort's private lake. The buffet with grill and home cooking.
For your info i gained 3 kgs in 2 days.

Good food, although one should not go to South Africa for the restaurants.
Drakensberg Sun Hotel is very nice and very good food. I once ate Boboti.
