Trek it out, then relax!

Inkosana Lodge serves as an excellent base from which to explore the mighty Drakensberg range, or as a tranquil retreat for travellers to unwind.

The backpackers accommodation lodge is set amongst indigenous gardens against the backdrop of the peaks of the Drakensberg Mountains. There are acres of open space, undisturbed grassland, and the rolling hills of the Little ‘Berg.

Inkosana attracts a wide range of people, from backpackers tramping through Africa to South Africans looking for a weekend getaway.

Backpacking accommodation consists of a suite, double rooms, thatched rondavels, dormitories, and a camping ground. The lodge has a self-catering kitchen and braai facilities, although it’s quite well known for breakfasts and dinners.

Inkosana is only 7 km from the Monk’s Cowl entrance of KwaZulu Natal’s spectacular Ukhahlamba Drakensberg National Park and access to the highest peaks in the Drakensberg, Champagne Castle, Injusuthi and Mafadi. Is centrally located making many other areas of the greater Park accessible by short drives.

If you’re a serious hiker or climber, you’ll find expert advice and guidance for your treks. If you want a pleasant walk, opportunities abound amongst the diverse natural flora and bird life. The Park is a U.N. World Heritage Site, both for its natural beauty and San (Bushman) rock art paintings and you’ll be able to explore both from Inkosana.

Hiking’s not the only thing to do at Inkosana. Many guests enjoy the horse riding and white water rafting. The area also features renowned craft centers, sport facilities and the world famous Drakensberg Boy’s Choir. Easy access by car to many historical battlefield sites.
