Twin Springs is an idyllic and relaxing getaway in the heart of the Southern Drakensberg Mountains, which is away from the hustle and bustle of the city, yet close enough to all the amenities of the small towns of Underberg and Himeville.

All cottages are comfortably apportioned, fully equipped, and serviced from Monday to Sunday. None of the cottages have got TV or radio with the exception of Lilly, but you would have to bring your own DSTV decoder.

Health & Climate:
Please remember to bring something warm - in summer days we have thunderstorms in the afternoon and this can cause the temperature to drop drastically.
The same applies to winter were we can have snow storms as early as March and as late as November.
Everything was clean and welcoming. Log fire inside while it was raining non stop. Very cosy. Beautiful area. We will be back on our road trip next year.
