This portion of the Drakensberg, is dominated by the Ithule Ridge, of which St Bernard’s Peak is part of. At the back of the Lodge, the Ntshungwane Ridge runs down to form the other natural boundary. The Mfelamadoda River provides the water into the large dam across the valley. The area has Caves, some with Bushman Paintings and the streams that flow into the dam, are part of the charm of this very attractive area.
