The Cavern is set in a secluded valley beneath the massive sandstone cliffs
of the Northern Drakensberg. The thatch accommodation and facilities blend
beautifully with the natural surroundings of the area. The Cavern is home to
numerous Bushman paintings, 213 species of birds, 90 species of trees and
numerous wild animals. As a nature lover, this would be your ideal location.
Boasting stunning views of the surrounding countryside, wildlife and a myriad
of birds, holidays in the Drakensberg offer you a taste of paradise midway
between Gauteng and Durban. Spend your days hiking or mountain biking, exploring
on the back of a horse or a quad bike, or take time out and enjoy a pampering in
our Forest Retreat spa, all topped off with excellent dining opportunities.
The Cavern is adjacent to the Royal Natal National Park and the Amphitheatre.
This is a World Heritage site and should be included in your itinerary when
planning holidays. The Cavern is named after the 'Cannibal Cavern', a 200 metre
wide and 60 metre deep overhang, situated above the hotel, and which was home to
ancestors of the Amazizi tribe.
With so much to see and do, this Drakensberg resort has a loyal following of
guests who come back time and again, resulting in The Cavern being given the
friendly title 'the resort of many happy returns'.
