An interesting insight into the San bushman culture, with well preserved paintings in caves high up at the top of an escarpment. It takes around an hour to reach the caves from the Visitor Centre on a well marked path, with some steep steps towards the end, but overall, not particularly hard going. The place was almost deserted when I... More

Kamberg Nature Reserve is a bit off the main road. It takes a good half to three quarters of an hour to get there over a poor tarred road. The last few km is gravel. The reward is some of the best rock art in the Drakensberg and likely a well informed guide. Ours was very knowledgeable. Be warned that... More

I visited Kamberg in December 2014. The camp is quiet and secluded - just the way I like it. There are only 5 chalets, so booking in advance is a must. (See KZN wildlife website) The self catering chalets itself are in need of some TLC as they are old and dated. The hot water in my unit was brown... More

The Kamberg Nature Reserve is plain awesome. Some of the most pristine rivers, springs and the hills and mountains of the Drakensberg make this a darling destination. Perfect for long morning and afternoon walks, lazy summer strolls along the river, chilled out golden orange sunsets...this is paradise in the mountains. Loved my time here and will be back for more... More

A bit rustic but everything works. Perfect getaway for some soul time. It is so quiet you can hear the ants working! Beautiful stars at night, epic clear days and only 30 minutes from Nottingham road. Trout fishing - berg walks, mountain biking, or just chill with a book. Everyone needs this type of breakaway

Kamberg is the smallest of the KZN Wildlife resorts int he drakensberg. This has a certain appeal... Wide open spaces seemingly in the middle of nowhere, fresh mountain air and refreshing natural water. The views of the underberg are expansive. The dams are allegedly well stocked with trout. I can't vouch for that as I didn't attempt any fishing but... More

What a gem of a self catering place to stay. We really enjoyed the small resort nestled so beautifully up in the Kamber Valley. We took two cottages and although basic, it was adequately equipped for our needs. The weather was hot one minute then very cool the next. We did an amazing hike up to the Bushmans Paintings with...

Lovely resort at the top of the Kamberg Valley. Road in is potholed but easy. Good cottages for those that like nature, walks in the mountains and fly fishing. The Eland Dam is a short walk from the accommodation and is well kept with mown walks around the dam and useful jetties to fish from. The walks are generally short... More
