If you want to get away from it all this is the place. Peace & quiet, beautiful view, no wifi, great meals, fantastic hosts that had great knowledge of nature & surroundings, beautiful hikes of which the stoney pass and vulture hide are unforgettable. The cottages offer bedrooms with a fireplace and a bathroom. All meals are taken in the...

The stay was part of a tour through South Africa with Drifters. We had a great stay. Just in the middle of nowhere. Nice woodfire in the bedroom. Nature was perfect. Each building jas two bedrooms and one basic bathroom.

This lodge is another unique drifters lodge; located at/close to the bottom of the Drakensberg and away from everything. The owners have been great hosts from preparing great, delicious meals, stories about the area and information about activities. A must-go!

Yes, part of me has remained there. I cannot imagine a better setting: mountains, horses, a lake...I might have well been part of a fairy tale, so surreal and beautiful this place was. The food was exceptional and you can spend a nice romantic time by the fire place when the lights go down. It is magic. And don't forget...

We booked out the entire lodge for a birthday weekend away. The lode is really in the middle of nowhere and is perfect as a true getaway. Rozan and Shaun, the hosts were very accommodating and friendly. The cabin lodges are basic but comfortable. The views are breathtaking! Only accessible by 4x4, and no electricity. Everything is solar and gas...

We were doing a horse riding tour of the area and spent our second night at Drifters. Our hosts were wonderfully welcoming and helped bring all their guests together. We had our own private cabin set with the fabulous mountain backdrop, but the social aspects of our stay took place in a central building. We relaxed in the sofas with...

This little Inn is designed as part of a range of drifters accommodation that is used for a "contiki" tour of South Africa by mainly European tourists. This its not ideal romantic setting, but is amazing for adventurous people wanting to hike and explore. As mentioned by other reviewers, only accessible through alpine heath by 4x4. The accommodation includes breakfast...

4WD access only gets you to this charming property. Designed primarily for the more adventurous traveler the property affords spectacular views of the magnificent Drakensberg Mountains. Activities include hiking and visiting the nearby national park (Parts of the classic Zulu movie with Michael Caine were filmed in and around this area). Certainly worth investigating.
