Points Of Interest:Accommodation
Several accommodation venues in the area offer direct access to the trail network. Two venues in particular stand out in terms of their accommodation, facilities, situation in relation to the trails, and their amazing hospitality. Both are owner run, and share our enthusiasm and commitment to awesome mountain biking in the Northern Drakensberg.
Montusi Lodge is a small and exclusive four star lodge offering accommodation in individual garden suites, each with spectacular views of the Amphitheatre and surrounding mountains. All the suites have a lounge with a fire place, TV, tea & coffee making facility and a mini bar fridge for drinks. Meals are taken in the lodge restaurant which is renowned for sumptuous local cuisine and innovative menus. A lovely pub and cosy lounge are also available in the main lodge. Montusi is brilliantly situated for mountain biking – it is in the very center of the whole trail network. Being situated in the valley rather than on the hillside means that all the trails are easily accessible without having start or finish with a big climb.
The Cavern has been offering great hospitality and excellent family holidays since 1941. It is beautifully situated in a below the majestic sandstone cliffs of the northern Drakensberg. It is a three star resort catering mostly for families. It offers all the facilities that make for a memorable and active Drakensberg holiday.

Meals are taken in the resort dining room and are included in the rate. The Cavern Dining Room offers a Table d' hoté menu. This is a set menu which includes a wide variety of meal choices, and always includes a vegetarian dish.
The Cavern is also home to the luxurious Forest Retreat Spa where you can enjoy relaxation massages, manicures & pedicures.
