The Nest Drakensberg Mountain Resort Hotel


... is located in the Central Drakensberg area of Natal in South Africa.

Situated 12km east of the main trailfoot at Monk's Cowl at the head of Champagne Castle valley, this place was founded in the 1930's and is the original mountain resort in this region, but is these days surrounded by farmland. It is a rather sprawling place, but pleasant enough. Accommodation is in 55 thatched rondavels, whilst public areas are housed in the original buildings. A broad range of country club activities are offered, including three championship bowls greens.

The Nest Drakensberg Mountain Resort Hotel is a bit of an institution, certainly it has seen better days.
