The space
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 opposite ends of the Manor and our family in a third unit in the middle. Walking out onto the spacious back lawn, guests find themselves met with commanding views of Cathkin and Champagne Castle mountain peaks.

This is where we are blessed to live. Dragon Peaks has been the home of the Tungay family for four generations, since its purchase by Ron and Gwen Tungay in 1955. My husband and I took over the Manor House, that was once husband's grandparents' home, and have converted its two large wings into self-catering units.

In our mind, Champagne Valley is one of the most majestic places on earth. Its place in the Central Drakensberg is a must-see for any visitor to South Africa. This all said, Glenn and I love to travel and explore so we are often away from home.
