Cedar Garden is a spacious, well-appointed home set in a large cared for garden in the popular village of Underberg. Our centrally upmarket Bed and Breakfast (or self catering) is the perfect base from which to explore the Southern Drakensberg. Enjoy the heart of South Africa's most scenic dairy farming area with cool, snowy winters or the sunny, temperate days of summer, spectacular autumn colours and blossoms in spring. We invite you to come and enjoy this stately home and be rejuvenated by our magnificent countryside.

The hustle and bustle of city life will quickly be forgotten as you make yourself at home in our tranquil and picturesque setting. Cedar Garden has 12 bedrooms, double or single beds are available and linen, towels and toiletries are provided. To keep the winter chill at bay, electric blankets, heaters and hot water bottles are available. The lounge has a fireplace and DSTV.

The Sani Pass is an experience not to be missed. A 4 x 4 is required, but if you do not have your own, we can organise a trip up with one of the tour operators. Enjoy a drink at the highest pub in Africa at 2 874m. The Pass is the only access route between KwaZulu-Natal and Lesotho. (Don't forget your passports!)

The Sani Pass and surrounds offer some 'special' and endemic birding - Drakensberg Rockjumpers, Mountain Pipits and Drakensberg Siskins. Guided birding tours and guided hikes to the Bushman paintings can also be arranged through us. A favourite hike is to the 'Marching Men' site on the Khanti, a hike of about 5 hours.

Visit the historical Himeville Museum which was built in 1900 as the last of Natal's loop-holed forts before housing prisoners until 1972. An open-air exhibition of settler and agricultural history is surrounded by display rooms housing military, African traditional and even trout fishing memorabilia. The museum is also home to a valued collection of San artefacts.

After a day of adventure and exploring, return to the efficient, caring hospitality and a well deserved good night's sleep at Cedar Garden!
