On my last holiday to South Africa, my daughter and I enjoyed a wonderful few days at the Sungubala Drakensberg Mountain Bush Lodge. A perfect place to experience the wonder of these magnificent mountains and highly recommended if you are looking for a comfortable, friendly, quiet, and even reasonably-priced place to stay (see photograph at the bottom of this hub).

This is one of the many poems inspired by the amazing surroundings.


Did you hear the cuckoo sing?

I thought I heard everything

Until I heard the magic of Sungubala

Did you hear the Piet My Vrou?

I didn't know where to go

Until I saw the Red Chest at Sungubala

Keeping your call with me

Walking from the path

Feeling safe with you

At Sungubala
