A Hiker’s Paradise

Daily complimentary guided hikes are offered including highlighted walks with the novelty of tea, coffee and rusks in the mountains, bird watching and Bushman San Art Sites.

The Great Outdoors

With a range of outdoor activities on offer, you are guaranteed to enjoy every moment at Cathedral Peak Hotel.

From volleyball, outdoor chess, mini-golf and bowling competitions, badminton and tennis matches, complimentary rock climbing to relaxing on one of the loungers by our heated and cold swimming pools, there is something for everyone.

Those wanting a bit more excitement will enjoy various mountain bike trails, a 5km jogging route, one or two-hour horse rides for beginner or intermediate riders and quad biking up into the hills past Lake William.

Our three on-site dams offer you the opportunity to either fly or bass fish. Lake Jarred, a close 15-minute walk, is stocked with rainbow trout and a little further afield, Lake Byron and Lake William both offer bass.

A helicopter is also available for jaw-dropping nearby sightseeing flights including the very popular champagne stopover, perfect for popping the question or breath-taking wedding photos.

For the smaller kids we have an awesome playground with trampolines, splash pool for those hot summers days and daily complimentary pony rides.

Golfing in the Drakensberg
