We spent 2 nights at the Amphitheatre Lodge.
We went there with the Bazbus.
The place is amazing! All those montains around. A lot of things to do in the lodge (Jaccuzi, Sauna, tennis table etc...).
We had a private room with ensuite bathroom and a view ... The room was really quiet. Far from the reception. But it was a little bit dark and the view...with a small window...
Inside everything was nice and clean.
On the other hand when we just arrived the lady spoke to us during 30 minutes (we were just spending 6 hours in a bus...) about the tours... We wanted to do the Lesotho tour but she tried to sell us both tours except that we had to stay only 2 nights so we couldn't do both but she again tried to sell us to stay one more night + the other tour... hum hum... Too much for us!!!!
The evening dinner is a little bit expensive but if you do not bring food and if you 're hundry you just can eat there and it cost R135. It was not too bad. There is no free water. You have to pay for everything.
When you want to borrow towel or tennis table you have to pay a R50 deposit. There is confidence for you!!
Except that we had the feeling that they " love money" the place is really nice and you can go to Lesotho and spend a really good day the a really nice and interesting guide (from 7:30 until 5:30).
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The venue is really amazing. The lodge is found on a stunning 300 hectares of land near the foot of the Amphitheatre (Royal Natal National Park) and Cathedral Peak. The Mpande River weaves through the lands. There are buck, small mammals and a fantastic array of wild birds near the 2 dams and a picture postcard view from the lawn, a 360 degree panorama that takes in the entire Northern range from the Amphitheatre all the way to Cathkin Peak. The lodge is a base from which you can explore different sections and all the highlights of the Drakensberg Park each day. Built from stone, thatch and wood, the place is like an artist's sculpture with stained glass, metal and wooden carvings, mosaics and beautiful indigenous rockeries. ... more less
