Rockwood Earth Lodge is situated in the Champagne Valley, just past The Drakensberg Boys Choir, surrounded by an indigenous garden where local Reed buck and Duiker take their refuge in the surrounding vegetation. The original farm house has been lovingly restored to retain its colonial charm, and a modern Rock Cave completes the gem find quality.
Situated in the Champagne Valley, with spectacular views of Cathkin Peak, the lodge is a stone's throw away from uKhahlamba World heritage site, one of only seven sites world-wide awarded world heritage status in 3 categories - archaeology, vegetation and geology.
This is a wonderful area for hiking, swimming in the clean water of mountain streams and waterfalls, and for discovering unique wild flowers and San rock art. The inspiring nature of the majestic Drakensberg is enhanced by cooling off in a massive rock pool.
Luxury self-catering accommodation in a setting that will free you from the stresses of the modern busy lifestyle.

There lies a giant rock on the rock pool side that provides a cozy retreat for a couple looking for time to stand still for a while.
