Castleburn - South Africa

Castleburn Resort - Drakensberg - South Africa

Nestled among the foothills of the southern Drakensberg, this scenic mountain resort offers the ideal getaway for those in search of nature’s beauty and peace. With Lake Madingofani at its feet, Castleburn lures eland, reedbuck and numerous bird species to this peaceful setting.

The architecturally designed cottages were thatched and built with hand-hewn local stone, to stand inconspicuous against their natural milieu. There are studio 4-sleepers, 1 bedroom 4-sleepers, 3 bedroom 6-sleepers or 2 bedroom 6-sleepers.
Each cottage has a comfortable lounge, dining room, bathroom, fully equipped kitchen and braai area on the patio. There are heating systems in the bedroom and bathrooms and a stone fireplace for extra comfort and atmosphere. Some units even have a jacuzzi.
