About Cavern Drakensberg Resort & Spa

The Cavern Drakensberg Resort and Spa is only 3.5 hours from Johannesburg, located on 3000 hectares of private mountain reserve in the Northern Drakensberg. Numerous awards support the luxurious standing of the Cavern hotel.

Visit the primitive Bushmen paintings, view various birdlife in their natural environment, or stand in awe beneath some of the most remarkable tree species.

Especially important is that this hotel caters particularly for children, even providing a dedicated play area for them.


Beautiful thatched-roof rooms boast breath-taking views of the African backdrop, and are set in tranquil gardens away from the resort.


Healthy meals are available for young and old guests alike. Alternatively, enjoy a buffet meal on the outdoor decks, or breakfast in the Boma.

For parents looking for a relaxing dinner without the kids, a separate children's dining room with a separate children's menu and nanny supervision is available (for children over 7 years of age).

The Cave Bar, a unique feature at the Cavern is the only cave bar in South Africa and reminds one of Bushman Art and their lifestyles.
