Relax and experience the peace and tranquility of the Central Drakensberg at Wits End. Our small family run resort is nestled below the twin peaks of Champagne Castle and Cathkin in the heart of the Champagne Valley and offers a casual atmosphere and friendly service.

At Wits End we offer the best of both worlds. An all weather road extends to our front gate and provides easy access to the many amenities of the area which include fine hotels, restaurants and golf courses; of which the Champagne Sports Resort 18 hole championship course is a favourite amongst the golfing fraternity.

Wits End is a stone's throw from the uKhahlamba Drakensberg Park, one of only 7 sites worldwide having been awarded World Heritage status in 3 categories, for archaeology, vegetation and geology. Here one can view authentic San rock art.

Guests may attend the weekly term-time concerts held in the auditorium of the neighbouring internationally acclaimed Drakensberg Boys Choir School. The school's bi-annual music festivals are another attraction not to be missed.

We also have a rock swimming pool with a kids paddling pool, a playground with a trampoline, table tennis and darts and a "chip and putt" green.

All chalets have magnificent mountain views and are fully appointed with stoves microwaves, DStv and braai areas. The resort has a rock pool and Lapa, alongside which is an outdoor braai area with a Pizza oven and Mongolian braai; ideal for group entertaining. The private nature trail on the property is a nature lovers paradise passing through an indigenous forest and mountain grasslands, with an abundance of flora and fauna. Wits End's 10 acre dam is one of the largest in the area and attracts an abundance of bird life. The dam is stocked with rainbow trout and Natal yellow fish so guests can enjoy fly fishing right on their doorstep. Alternately explore the dam and meandering river on one of our canoes.

The resort, a two hour drive from Durban and four hours from Johannesburg, is ideal for a weekend getaway or a longer, more leisurely stay and is situated in a malaria free area.

We encourage group bookings and can arrange various recreational activities.
