What Our Guests Have To Say

We spent two nights in the lodge as a base for our hiking in the Drakensberg and it was fantastic. Definitely the ideal place to stay if you want to explore the Amphitheatre. Lovely new rooms with heating and electric blankets to thaw after a cold and wet hike. Spectacular views from our window, friendly staff and great service. Will visit again. Our favourite place we visited in the Drakensberg Mountains.

Had the most delicious beef stew with scrumptious veggies for dinner – perfect meal for the weather up there. Breath taking views and some spooky mist as the evening rolled in. Staff were friendly. Lovely accommodation with loads of tourists there going on hiking trails. Would love to go back when I am not on business. Nice peaceful location in the mountains with the sound of cows bells in the meadows.
Tripadvisor Review, Jeannine B
If you wish to experience the Drakensberg but only have a short time, or want to do the Amphitheatre hike, I can’t imagine a better place than Witsieshoek Mountain Lodge. This location is incredible. We stayed in 2 of the new Sentinel chalets and found them to be warm and comfortable, with breath-taking views. The lodge restaurant serves wholesome South African food, and the staff are helpful and very friendly.
