"Climb the mountains and get their good tidings. Nature's peace will flow
into you as sunshine flows into trees ... while cares drop off like autumn
leaves." - John Muir (19th century environmentalist).
Come and rejuvenate your soul at Santih, an especially comfortable home-from-home. The main bedroom has a double bed with bathroom en-suite. Two other bedrooms have two single beds each, and a second bathroom has bath and shower. Open plan kitchen and living area make for convivial evenings, especially in winter, when the gas fireplace makes drinking red wine a must! In summer, fire up the built-in barbecue and enjoy eating outside on the spacious patio with breathtaking views over the lake at the Drakensberg Sun.
Santih has the Drakensberg World Heritage Site at its doorstep ... literally step out into the majesty of the mountains. There are numerous walks, ranging from easy half-hour strolls to strenuous hikes. Otherwise, indulge in locally sourced crafts (KwaZulu Natal Weavers is nearby), cuisine (Assagay coffee is locally sourced), and spas. Horse-riding, quad-biking, rafting, falconry and world-class mountain bike trails are available in the valley, as is South Africa's longest canopy tour.
