Oaklands Country Manor - Van Reenen

Oaklands Country Manor and its surrounding estate in Central Drakensberg are steeped in a rich history that dates back to the years preceding the First Boer War. It has seen a series of devoted owners who enjoyed varying degrees of success as the property served as a game farm, family estate and guest house over the years.

Meals can be enjoyed in a variety of settings to suit the mood and season – the cosy restaurant for colder evenings, and for those balmy nights and sun-kissed mornings their is a beautiful terrace, where you can unwind or start your day with an unsurpassed view of the mountains in the distance. We enjoyed very much Annie's passionate service and the very relaxed atmosphere!
