Accommodation Drakensberg

Nestled in the southern Drakensberg, only 180km from Durban city centre is the Qambathi Mountain Reserve Lodge.  This private game reserve offers luxurious accommodation in the Kamberg valley.  Centrally located in the foothills of the Drakensberg Mountains, accommodation in Kamberg is conveniently placed to visit other well-known areas of the Drakensberg such as Lotheni and Giants Castle.

Qambathi Mountain Reserve Lodge employed local South African artists to create a modern decor with a distinctly African signature using natural colours and raw materials to match the surrounding landscape.  Accommodation at Qambathi Mountain Reserve Lodge consists of five suites with panoramic views of the Kamberg Mountains and the picturesque gardens.  The three superior suites have private covered decks with hanging chairs and spectacular views.  Rates include bed and breakfast, and all suites have tea and coffee making facilities with under floor heating for cool nights.

The communal Chill Lounge and Pool Deck are ideal locations to enjoy late afternoon sundowners while relaxing in the hanging chairs and loungers.  This uniquely inspiring accommodation is only 5km from Kamberg nature reserve, home to many guided walks and magnificent hiking trails.  Qambathi Mountain Reserve is home to Zebra, Hartebeest, Blesbuck, Oribi, Reedbuck, Eland, Bush Buck, Duiker and some small cat species.  Accommodation in the lodge allows access to horse-back rides in the Kamberg valley to view resident game.  In addition, there are several well stocked trout dams located close to the reserve.

While staying in accommodation near the Kamberg nature reserve, a visit to the local Bushman Rock Art centre is not to be missed.  Daily tours of the local well-preserved bushman rock art at Game Pass Shelter leave from the centre and take approximately three hours.
