The Cavern Resort & Spa has been introducing overseas and South African visitors to the joys of mountain holidays for many years. The Cavern, named after the “Cannibal Cavern”, is situated on a private mountain reserve adjacent to the Amphitheatre World Heritage Site.

This stunning resort has won numerous accolades over the years. Honeymoon suites, superior suites and standard accommodation are available with spectacular views of the surrounding valleys, indigenous forests and mountains. Honeymoon suites are complete with four-poster beds and fireplaces for cool evenings. The Forest Spa, set high up in the indigenous forest, is a relaxing space to unwind in whilst being treated by our therapists.

The Cavern is home to numerous Bushman paintings, over 200 species of birds, 150 species of trees and wildlife including leopard and eland. The resort offers daily guided hikes to bushman paintings and rock carvings. For the more energetic, walks are organised to the Tugela Gorge and to the top of the Amphitheatre. An extensive range of recreational facilities, from guided walks, horse rides and trout fishing are available on the reserve while mountain bike trails are at the nearby adventure centre.
