Rock Lodge is a magnificent lodge built into a hillside overlooking the Bushman’s River with Giant's Castle as a backdrop. The lodge incorporates the surrounding freestanding natural rock into its lounge wall. The secluded and private lodge can accommodate six people and offers mini conference facilities for up to 20 persons. It doubles as an ideal intimate wedding venue for up to 50 people. All units are equipped with a barbeque facility. A scenic picnic site is situated close to Giant’s Resort and offers all the usual amenities. Izimbali restaurant and bar provides guests with the option of fully catered meals in its warm and relaxed atmosphere. There is also a kitchen for guests to prepare their own meals if they wish, with a cook in attendance to help prepare meals. Overnight hiking routes extend deep into valleys and forests of the area and up onto the main escarpment, ensuring a pure wilderness experience with breathtaking views and scenery. Day hikes and walks consist of routes that are graded from easy to difficult. Some of them have gloriously refreshing rock pools that beg to be swum in, the crisp berg water will leave you feeling completely rejuvenated.
