Underberg and the Southern Drakensberg has a brand new campsite.

Bordering the magnificent wilds of Lesotho and the spectacular natural beauty of the national parks in the area, Khotso has always attracted travellers from all over the world. It’s no wonder the Southern Drakensberg with its jagged mountains and rolling foothills is listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site for outstanding natural beauty – and here at Khotso, we’re a part of it every day.

Camping, and rightly so, is a proud tradition in South Africa. The great outdoors is on our doorstep and when we do it, we do it well. Whether it’s pitching our tent and setting up the braai under the stars or pulling up our overlander, we are a nation who thrive outside.
