As a family with a 5-year old child, we had to take a 4 bed mountain view chalet. The whole setup of the camp and the terrace are really cool and we loved to have a braii in the evening. Thank God I read the Tripadvisor reviews before and had made a note that it is essential to buy groceries...

My compliments to the Natal Parks Board for an outstanding venue. The quality of the superb accommodation was unequalled during our recent four-week tour round South Africa. There was absolutely nothing we found lacking or sub-standard - perfection right down to the little touches. Due to its location the park has many natural advantages and the scenic beauty is legendary...

Tucked into the folds of the mountain this is a great camp. The units are brilliantly designed to maximize the mountain views and privacy from other units. Very comfortably furnished and fantastic to have a fireplace in the unit, not to mention a complementary bale of wood and coal. The walks from this camp are spectacular.

We stayed at Giants Castle Camp over the “Christmas in July” weekend and although we missed the Saturday afternoon festivities the thick blanket of snow that fell on our last night made up for any loss and really gave us a White Christmas. From making the reservation to the help we received from the staff when we were snowed in...

Wow this was by far my best hotel stay. Great room with a fantastic view. Wood fired heating and comfortable bed in a world heritage area. A must stay, for some of south Africa’s best cave paintings. Beware of the drive in as at the time of this review the road was terrible, but don’t let that put you off,...

The views of the Drakensberg are amazing. The camp is clean and has a good restaurant, with friendly, helpful staff. Special thanks to Joshua who pitched up pretty fast when, after stupidly leaving my chalet door slightly open, I had a 'baboon incident'! Also to Thandeka, the guide at the Main Caves who showed and explained the San rock art...

A bit of a drive through shanty town but absolutely well worth the breathtaking views and tranquility. The chalets are equipped with everything you need and the service level of the housekeeping, restaurant and guides are great. The experience as a whole was enchanting and we will definitely return for more hiking through the mountains. A true gem that gifts...

An out of the way place with much to see and enjoy - we wanted to watch the bearded vultures in their native habitat, and saw Eland too. Baboons - well you cannot avoid them. This camp is well worth a visit. Do not expect 5* hotels but the accommodation is very good and the dinning excellent. We visited the...

We had an excellent stay at Giants Castle. It is absolutely gorgeous and right in the center of the nature reserve. The chalet was comfortable. The camp provided fire wood, coal and fire lighters so that we could enjoy a glass of red wine by the the indoor fire. Breakfast was delicious and we enjoyed our walk. Can't wait to...
