The Cavern Drakensberg Resort & Spa • Drakensberg



The Cavern Resort & Spa, known as the Cannibal Cavern, is situated in the foothills of the Northern Drakensberg, within the Amphitheatre World Heritage Site region. It is a remarkably beautiful place, encompassed by stunning native forests and crystal-clear mountain streams. Originally a modest and unassuming homestead, The Cavern has evolved into a welcoming retreat for numerous families seeking a memorable vacation in the magnificent Drakensberg Mountains.

For the past 80 years, the Carte family has owned and operated The Cavern, consistently delivering unforgettable family holidays that extend beyond a mere stay at a fine hotel. At The Cavern, we understand the value of human connections in making your holiday truly special. We encourage our guests, without imposing any obligations, to mingle during excursions and activities. It is through these interactions that friendships are forged, leading to guests returning time and time again. This is why our guests coined the slogan in 1958: “The resort of many happy returns.”
