Esigodini (Zulu name for "place in the valley") is a delightful stone under iron holiday cottage nestled in its own valley just off the Drakensberg Gardens road approximately 1km from the hotel

The cottage is fully equipped and well appointed with 3 inside bedrooms, a seperate rondavel and a newly built outside chalet with large bedroom and bathroom. The unit comfortably accommodates 10 people in the 5 bedrooms.

The lounge has a feature stone fireplace and a DSTV set is provided but guests must bring their own smartcard for satellite reception.

The house is situated in a large 20 acre tree-filled garden with small dam and stream running through the property. It has a commanding view of the Rhino peak of the Drakensberg escarpment. Many walks can be undertaken from the cottage either into the surrounding hills or through the entrance at the Drakensberg Gardens to the KZN Wildlife Conservation area (ask at the hotel for directions and free access).

Esigodini is a wonderfully peaceful and comfortable refuge for a relaxing getaway , and the ideal base from which to explore the beauty of the southern Drakensberg.
