The Central Drakensberg – your adventure starts here! We have just over a month to go before we see the onset of Spring. A season of rebirth and pretty colours.

Before we say goodbye to Winter, don’t miss out on the opportunity to take advantage of our Winter special. It is currently running and valid until end of August. Plus, there are extras with 10% off Canopy Tours and 10% off our A la Carte Menu.

Winter may be cold but we cannot say the same for the hospitality of the Central Drakensberg community. So, dress up warm, grab your boots and backpack and head to The Nest Hotel in the Champagne Valley of the Central Drakensberg. Your adventure starts here!

I will leave you with a favourite saying. “Keep close to Nature’s heart… and break clear away, once in a while, and climb a mountain or spend a week in the woods. Wash your spirit clean.” – John Muir. We hope to see you soon in the mountains! Come and experience The Nest Hotel hospitality, cosy rooms and delicious food.
