The Central Drakensberg is the hub of the Drakensberg area and is an easy drive on all-weather roads from the main centers of Johannesburg, Pietermaritzburg and Durban. Its landscape is what one typically expects of the “Berg” with its vast contrasts of towering peaks and deep valleys.

The uKhahlamba World Heritage site has been awarded world heritage status in 3 categories: archaeology, vegetation and geology. This is a status shared by only 7 sites worldwide. Naturally, the area abounds in indigenous flora and fauna and we are situated within the 2-kilometre buffer zone.

Wits End is a nature lover’s paradise with several private nature trails spread over 250 acres of pristine mountain landscape. These run through indigenous forests and mountain grassland providing an excellent example of local flora and fauna including many species of birds and mammals such as bushbuck, reedbuck, grey duiker, Cape otter and water mongoose to name but the most prolific.We have also introduced Wildebeest which although very shy and elusive, offer an exciting experience when viewed on foot.

The Central Drakensberg offers the convenience of numerous fine hotels and cosy family restaurants with many fine dining opportunities as well as several convenience stores for those who would rather self-cater.
