“Thank you Terri-lee for the most wonderful stay. Your communication leading up to our stay was so efficient, and you made everything so easy. The home itself is set in paradise! We were blown away by the views when we arrived. William and Thuli looked after us so well, and we had a heavenly time and loved visiting this new part of South Africa for me. My two year old grandson was in his element and did not want to leave. We enjoyed our outings to the Drak Gardens hotel, the Olde Duck (lovely for kids) and the Himeville museum. Your home far exceeded our expectations on every level. Thank you! ”
Where is it?
The picturesque little farming village of Underberg lies in the southern foothills of the Drakensberg range of mountains in the southwest of KwaZulu-Natal.
If you have a four-wheel drive vehicle take a visit to the Sani Pass - the third steepest pass in the world - that winds through some of Africa's most spectacular scenery. If you wish to go over the border into Lesotho a passport is necessary for non-South African citizens.
About 10 kilometers outside Underberg on the road to Swartberg is the Iris garden at Mount Dragon. This garden is well worth visiting, especially in October and November when the Irises are in bloom.
There is plenty of bird-watching in the Underberg area - a chance to see many species that are only seen on or near to the Berg. The rivers and streams around Underberg offer some of South Africa's best trout fishing. Hiking in the Underberg area can be planned so that hikers can spend the night in either a cave or a mountain hut.
Examine the splendor of the indigenous fauna and flora, cosseted in the nearby Natal Parks Board Nature Reserve. Join up with the Giant's Cup Hiking trail that passes through Castleburn or make a journey to the little town of Underberg, 30km away.
