We have just come home from a splendid week in this Central Drakensberg gem.
Facilities are top class with the best ablutions I have seen in a caravan park in 56 years of caravanning. Rates were incredibly good at R87pp for pensioners.The other plusses are a rock swimming pool, gravel squares to pitch tents on under numerous oak trees, playground for kids, tennis court, and quite a number of gĺamping tents with fridge matresses on beds etc.
The camp is close to 3 hotels, a Raptor and a Reptile centre and a Waffle hut and shops about 3km away. The Raptor centre show is unbelievably good and worth coming all the way just to see.
This may just usurp our favourite site Cobham with its natural beauty and rock pools and minimal facilities.

We have not camped at Mount Splendour but have explored the valley where it is situated. Agree with you, the valley has a lot to offer. Falcon Ridge is a must and don't forget Drakensberg Boys Choir's weekly performance. On our next trip to the berg we will stay there instead of Drakensville.

The Happy Campers.

They must have closed the bicycle spares shop down. They used to rent out mountain bikes there.

I wanted to camp at Mountain Splendour as well when we visited the Drakensberg but I think we would pay over R900 per night over December which is was a shock as we could camp for half the price everywhere else around the place. I am sure they are top class though but I can camp twice as long just around the corner and still enjoy the mountains.

Maybe one day.

Hope to go there in the near future.  Been planning for it but YES. Things at work must first stabilize then I make a plan for a week or so.
