Considered to be one of South Africa's premier conference and holiday venues, Alpine Heath Resort allows you to relax in the comfort of an exclusive mountain village nestled in the midst of Northern Drakensberg. This is the ideal destination for an escape from the hustle and bustle of the concrete jungle and a chance to relax and unwind while basking in the beauty of the natural surroundings. You and your fellow travellers will also be able to enjoy a unique horse-riding experience, instantly channelling your inner Equestrian. Warm and elegantly decorated in neutral shades, crisp white sheets and rich dark wood finishing, your chalet will be your perfect home away from home. With splendid breath-taking views and stylish living quarters, your stay at this family-friendly holiday spot will guarantee you leave feeling revived and refreshed.
The Drakensberg Mountains is a 200-kilometre-long mountainous wonderland and world heritage site with a range rising to over 3 000 meters. A stone’s throw away, you will be able to view the unsurpassed grandeur of the world's second highest waterfall, the Tugela Falls, which tumbles down a series of breath-taking cascades. The Natal Drakensberg Park is also close-by: enjoy a refreshing hike in this wilderness area and spot several species of wildlife including bushbuck, oribi, mountain reedbuck, eland and mischievous baboons, as well as many others. Decorated by a wealth of flora, including wild flowers and pink and orange Watsonia blooming on the hillside in spring, the picturesque area is the perfect “wish you were here” postcard and will be a treat for keen photography enthusiasts.
I celebrated my 40th birthday at Alpine Heath with good friends and family. It was a total blast and the resort was excellent! What made the weekend even more special was how much the staff went out their way to make sure the celebrations were a success. It is a great family resort with so much to do for everybody. – Graham Petzer, July 2011
