We, Gareth and Sam, manage and run Sani Valley and are committed to making your stay truly memorable. Having worked in hospitality and catering for many years, we have fine-tuned a blend of nature and luxury at Sani Valley that we believe you simply can’t find elsewhere. And this is something our many accolades in professional publications prove testament to.

We and our staff are fortunate to run one of the most beautiful valleys in the Drakensberg and like nothing more than sharing it with our guests. We will be more than happy to organise activities, give you suggestions, share travel itineraries and much more.

Should you have any questions please don’t hesitate to drop us an email on or, or give us a call.
