Directions to Cathedral Peak Hotel, Drakensberg, KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa

Set on the foothills of the Drakensberg Mountains, Cathedral Peak boasts exquisite surroundings in the quiet valley and features comfortable accommodation.

Just 250 km from Durban and 450 km from Johannesburg, the Cathedral Peak Hotel is easily accessible to its many visitors from all over South African and abroad.


From Johannesburg

Take the N5 from Harrismith toward the Free State. Not far out of the town turn left onto the R712, and after about 8 kilometres (5 miles), turn left again onto the R74. This route will take you past the Sterkfontein Dam, and down the scenic Oliviershoek Pass.

Continue to Bergville. Just beyond Bergville, on the R74 to Winterton, turn right at the 'Cathedral Peak Hotel' sign. After approximately 16 kilometres (10 miles) turn right to Emmaus/ Cathedral Peak. It is approximately 31 kilometres (19.2 miles) to Cathedral Peak in the Drakensberg, South Africa.

From Durban

On the N3, about 26 kilometres (16.1 miles) beyond the Estcourt glide-off from the N3 freeway (and beyond the turnoff to the Central Berg Resorts) take the Bergville/Colenso off-ramp. Turn left onto the R74 to Winterton/Bergville. (Ignore the apparently shorter route from Estcourt through Loskop - a section of this road is currently rough gravel marked with a red arrow on the map.)

Turn left onto the R600 in Winterton, and turn right after approximately 1 kilometre (1 mile) to Cathedral Peak. After 11 kilometres (6.8 miles) there is a T-junction. Turn right and almost immediately left to Emmaus/Cathedral Peak. It is about 31 kilometres (19.2 miles) to Cathedral Peak Hotel.
