Drakensberg Accommodation at Witsieshoek Mountain Lodge

Witsieshoek Mountain Lodge is situated in the Northern Drakensberg Mountains of South Africa at the foot of the magnificent Sentinel Peak. The lodge looks across the rolling foothills of Royal Natal, into the face of  the Amphitheater, from which the highest falls in the world –  Tugela Falls – cascades. This beautiful alpine area is home to a variety of landscapes, rich flora and fauna and some incredible Drakensberg accommodation in the heart of it all. 

Witsieshoek is the trailhead to the Sentinel Peak Hike, a one-day hike that takes you up the Chain Ladders, to the top of Tugela Falls. There are over 80kms of hiking trails from the Lodge, dropping down into Royal Natal for Mahai, Gudu and Tiger Falls, or west into the Namahadi Valley.

The lodge offers affordable Drakensberg accommodation, ideal for families, hikers, large or small  groups visiting the area. Whatever your choice of accommodation, expect comfortable beds to welcome you home from a long day exploring the incredible and wild surrounding scenery of the Northern Drakensberg.
