Review accommodation for Nxala Ranch - Bed & Breakfast accommodation in Dundee, KwaZulu-Natal.
For a small corporate venue, the Nxala Ranch was the ideal Dundee accommodation in the KZN Midlands. The thatch-roofed Nxala Ranch bed and breakfast in Dundee sleeps eight, and is catered accommodation, but they do have a fully equipped kitchen for those who want a Dundee self catering option on a holiday or weekend away.
It wasn't only for the quick access to this convenient Dundee accommodation, but our weekend team building exercises included game viewing, fishing, hiking, and seeing San rock art.
Dundee is in the Midlands and Battlefields tourist areas so we also took the opportunity of visiting the historic Anglo South African War Battlefields.
All in all, despite the 'work' aspect, accommodation at the Nxala Ranch in Dundee was very relaxing, as most evenings were spent around the braai on the spacious veranda overlooking the dam.
