“The Little Berg, where Dragon Peaks is situated, is a land of singing streams and whispering forests, a land where liquid bird calls greet the dawn, and where the yelping cry of the Jackal Buzzard breaks the noonday silence, where the diapason organ notes of the thunder roll amongst the crags, and where the winds sing their immemorial song amongst the tall trees of the forest.” – ‘Barrier of Spears’ 1973.

Orchard Manor

Orchard Manor, Drakensberg

Welcome to Orchard Manor. We are situated in Champagne Valley of the beautiful Central Drakensberg of South Africa, on the property of Dragon Peaks Mountain Resort, which borders the UNESCO Maloti-Drakensberg Park (uKhahlamba), listed as both a cultural and natural world heritage site.

Orchard Manor is set amongst two fruit tree groves on a hill side above Mount Champagne and the Drakensberg Boys Choir School. Situated five minutes drive (1.3km) by private road from the reception, Orchard Manor offers the perfect retreat for those seeking privacy in the mountains.

Orchard Manor contains two fully equipped, self-catering units that sleep 5 and 6 people respectively, with each unit situated on opposing wings of the Manor. Walking out onto the spacious back lawn, guests find themselves met with commanding views of Cathkin and Champagne Castle mountain peaks.

Guests also have the benefit of full access to Dragon Peaks Mountain Resort with its wide range of activities and facilities. These include a restaurant, Oaks Superette, hiking trails, swimming pool, tennis courts, the Adventure Centre, horse rides, mountain bike trails, and Westline Aviation helicopter flights. For a full range of facilities on offer, please see Dragon Peaks Mountain Resort.

Please note that, due to the large number of animals we have at Orchard Manor, we are not pet friendly. Please make other arrangements for your furry family members during you stay.
