 Witsieshoek resort

 A weekend in the Drakensberg is planned for 2-4 September, arriving on the friday afternoon.

The Witsieshoek resort is  about 350km from JHB, roughly a 3,5-4 hour journey.

There are a total of 12 units, each containing 4 beds.  Prices are R310 pp / day, which includes breakfast.

Apart from the bungalows (i.e. rondawel-shape buildings) @ R.310pp/night, they also have a slightly more upmarket chalet-type accomodation @ R.350 pp/night.

For the bungalows, the price drops a bit if more then 2 people take a unit (containing 4 beds)

They usually serve a buffet dinner for an additional R90 or so.

Planned activities are a hike up the escarpment via either the chainladder or the gully.  Then it is a 20 minute walk to the lip of the Tugela falls

We can also go down The Crack, heading towards the Mahai camp at Royal Natal
