Serenity, and listening to birds The pictures do not do justice to Drakensberg House. Our energetic toddler and baby loved crawling through the garden, while the whole family had lots of space inside. Being inside Bergview Estate, gives the house access to so many amenities. It really was an amazing home away from home and a good break.
