If I have the chance to return to Central Drakensberg I would definitely return to Cathkin Cottage.
Debby our host was simply lovely and helpful. She offered herself to guide us through the property to watch a pack of zebras and the outdoors with magnificent views of the Central Drakensberg. Rooms are warm and cozy and they offered a very good breakfast.
