The Village of Geluksburg in the Drakensberg was first conceived in 1908 but before it could be proclaimed the 1914-18 war,forced its abandonment.
The idea of a village was resurrected in the 1930`s but the outbreak of the 1939-45 war again saw its abandonment. The project finally took off in the 1980`s and Geluksburg became a unique village in the centre of the beautiful Central and Northern Drakensberg area.
Geluksburg is close to the famous " Lost Valley " of the Drakensberg which has its own place in the folklore of the Drakensberg, being the site of a " white tribe " which lived isolated from the rest of civilisation until just after the turn of the century.
Visitors to this area of the Drakensberg can find entertainment for the whole family, having the choice of many places to hike, game view, play golf or participate in many action adventures such as quad biking, horse riding and Hot Air Ballooning.

A real pleasant stay. The facilities are neat and comfortable, the food is tasty and the hosts are friendly. A value-for-money overnight stop in a beautiful part of our country. We will surely visit Homestead again.
