Hlalanathi Berg Resort

Hlalanathi is located in the Northern Drakensberg overlooking the Tugela River and Amphitheatre mountain peak.

Near Bergville, halfway between Gauteng and the KZN east coast, this is an ideal breakaway resort with modern facilities and sparkling ablutions.

Hlalanathi offers guests accommodation in 2-, 4- and 6 -sleeper thatched chalets. Each unit is fully equipped and beautifully furnished with braai facilities. Chalaet are serviced for your convenience.

For many years the Drakensberg was thought to be a place of great mystery and Legends. Through the ages though, man has explored these icy crags and lonely peaks, bringing tales of Bushmen and splendid sights.  In an age where nature seems to be forgotten and time has no value, there are but few retreats left in Africa that can revitalise ones soul and make you feel truly alive.

Tucked away in a valley, shadowed by a mighty mountain is one such place. On the foothills of the Northern Drakensberg you will find  Hlalanathi Drakensberg Resort.

Golf enthusiasts will be pleased to know that the Amphitheatre Golf Course is situated next door to Hlalanathi.

This challenging Nine Hole boasts the Amphitheatre as a backdrop, and has been developed with minimum impact on the ‘berg environment.  Indigenous vegetation has been encouraged between the fairways, and the water features have attracted an array of local bird life.
