Thread: Drakensberg Accommodation Wanted

  1. #1

    Default Drakensberg Accommodation Wanted

    Morning All


    I am in desperate need of accommodation in the Drakensberg from 20-24 March 2013. My usual cottage is not available and I want something that is central enough to put me onto the Bushmans, Injusuthi, Mooi, etc.


    The cottage on the Bushmans provided all of that. So if anyone knows of a venue close to Giants Castle, Mooi River, Nottingham Road that won't rape my wallet please feel free to share.


    A cottage/chalet would do as it's only myself and Xavier that would be fishing that weekend. No T.V., no cell reception but at least a freezer to keep my food cold.


    Thank you ever so kindly

    Depends how far you wanna be.
    Glengarry near rosetta has some cheaper accomodation.
    Champagne cottages,closer to injisuthi side is a very nice venue,on the Bellpark dam,but around 70km or so from notties,so sort of halfway to Bushmens.

    The main target would be the Bushmans. I would also like to spend a day or so on Injusuthi as I believe the youngster would enjoy that tremendously. From Giants there is a short cut to Injusuthi, no need to go back to the highway. I also know that Mooi River is not that far from the Bushmans. So anything would actually do from Giants towards Mooi River/ Rosetta. I am also itching to get back onto Lotheni again.

    I did look at Glengarry over the weekend and it does look good.
    I like the Tubing idea down the little stream, X-man would love that.

    glengarry is nice if your primary target is the mooi. If you want to be close to both the bushmans & the injisuthi, then ant bear is about midway between them - maybe not the cheapest (but cheaper than some!). If you don't mind camping, kzn wildlife has a nice campsite at wagondrift dam (also midway between bushmans & injisuthi). But if you were camping you might as well camp at injisuthi? (even in busy times the camp site usually has space). also

    Nothing available. Did this exercise 2 years ago, they charged me something like a R1200 or something in that line for a unit per night. Yeah, if I was from Europe 120 Euros wouldn't have hurt me a single bit.

    Camping with the little one is not an option right now as I am not kitted out with camping freezers, etc.

    glad you sorted, i forgot to add that injisuthi would probably be tough going on a little one, although the fish are "easy" the terrain is pretty hard.
