The Cavern is an “AA Superior” property in the Northern Drakensberg (KwaZulu-Natal).

The Cavern is adjacent to the Royal Natal National Park and the Amphitheatre. This is a World Heritage site and should be included in your itinerary when planning holidays in the South African Drakensberg. The Resort is named after the ‘Cannibal Cavern’, a 200 metre wide and 60 metre deep overhang, situated above the hotel, and which was home to ancestors of the Amazizi tribe.

The Cavern is set in a secluded valley beneath the massive sandstone cliffs of the Northern Drakensberg. The thatch accommodation and facilities blend beautifully with the natural surroundings of the area. The Cavern is home to numerous Bushman paintings, 213 species of birds, 73 species of trees and numerous wild animals. As a nature lover, this would be your ideal location.

This fabulous resort has won numerous accolades over the years. Superior suites, superior rooms and standard accommodation are available with views of the surrounding valleys. The Forest Spa, set high up in the indigenous forest, is a relaxing space to unwind in whilst being treated by our therapists.

The resort offers daily guided hikes and horse rides. For the more energetic, walks are organised to the Tugela Gorge and to the top of the Amphitheatre. The Cavern is home to an extensive range of recreational facilities, from trout fishing to mountain bike trails. With a 9-hole golf course and Adventure Centre down the road, this is the perfect holiday destination in the Northern Drakensberg.

The Carte family has owned the Cavern for over seventy years and from the outset have given guests memorable family holidays – not just a stay at a good Hotel. At The Cavern we appreciate that it is people who make your holiday – people with whom to laugh or share a drink. It’s a time to spend with family and to enjoy many happy interactions with your children which make it a special getaway in the berg.
