For a little bit of heaven in a very special land, visit Little Switzerland on the slopes of the mighty Drakensberg. A jewel set in a 2000 hectare private reserve of rolling hills, indigenous forest, mountain streams and breathtaking views. Whether you are an intrepid explorer, an incurable romantic or an exhausted businessman, Little Switzerland is the place to be.
Rise with the sun to view the majestic grandeur of the Amphitheatre in one of her many guises...clad in clouds, shrouded in snow, mellow in mist or crisp and clear. After a hearty breakfast fill your day with the virtually unlimited selection of sport or outdoor activities...tennis, bowls, volleyball, trampoline, putt-putt, croquet, mountain biking, horse riding, trout fishing, leisurely strolls, country hikes, bouldering, kloofing or a refreshing swim. Come climb on our climbing wall or inside the largest indoor rock-climbing cave in South Africa. For the extremists, we offer Rapp jumping - the forward descent off a rock face. For those rare days the sun does not shine we offer numerous indoor activities...table tennis, Sony play station, board games, pool tables, dart board.
Sip a sundowner out on the patio or enjoy the warmth of a crackling log fire in our cozy lounge on a cold winter's evening and relax after a day filled with memorable experiences. Sample our excellent cuisine; with an extensively diverse menu our young and innovative team of chefs will ensure an abundance of flavour and tantalise you with their fusion and classical cooking styles.
Allow us to handle your conference smoothly and efficiently. Specially requested theme events turn an everyday conference into a memorable experience. We offer an extensive range of team building including medium/low ropes course on site.
