Lonely Planet review
When a sign on a bunk says, ‘This bed is ready’, you know it’s one hell of an organised place. This Drakensberg delight’s indigenous garden, eco-friendly swimming pool, clean rooms and lovely rondavels make it one of the best spots around. Although promoted as a ‘backpacker lodge’, it’s more than this; its range of rooms would suit any discerning traveller. Excellent cuisine and heaps of activities and walks are on offer. Former mountaineer and welcoming owner Ed can give expert advice on hikes. It’s centrally located for activities in and around the area; you’ll find it on the R600, en route to Champagne Castle.
Our independent authors have visited Inkosana Lodge and selected this as one of our recommended accommodation in Monk’s Cowl & Champagne Valley.
