I travelled to this magnificent UN World Heritage site and stayed at Drakensberg House from the 22 February to the 26 February 2017. The cottage is so well positioned in the berg beneath 100 year old oak trees. We found the cottage to be perfectly kept, clean throughout and well equipped. I would recommend this property to family and friends...

Normally people discuss their needs before impulsively describing cleaners as being poor. Africa is not London and monkeys and spiders arrive overnight. In addition the glasses were checked pre your arrival and none were found broken requiring people...
