Chill out and marvel at beautiful scenery and the sound of birds and horses. Comfortable accommodation with full kitchen. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We stayed in the rondawel in the front which was very private.

Love the relaxed attitude of Khotso - lovely outlook and great trails nearby for MTB and running/walking. Stayed in the rondavels - very pleasant! Had a nice ride MTB one day and a hike next day. Could easily have chilled there a few more days!

We loved our camping trip at Khotso. We were welcomed by the mostly friendly staff, who were so helpful and went out of their way to help us. The facilities were clean and well-maintained. If there were any issues, the staff were readily available to assist. We also loved tubing down the river in the afternoon heat! Wonderful experience overall, and we will definitely return!

We stayed in the backpackers which has a relaxed vibe and we had a great view of the mountain from our Double En Suite. Also did horse riding, tubing and swimming in the river - all fantastic. Room is better than in the picture, only negative is that the bed is quite bouncy and noisy when you move.
Just remember to bring your own food as the backpackers doesn't serve meals.

We have been to Underberg many times but never thought of staying there as it seemed like it was just a "horse riding "place. I booked there because I was looking for a central camping spot near the river. Well, it completely stole my heart. We are on a 4-week trip around South Africa, started off at Khotso and we plan to finish off there too - it was just so good. We tubed in the river, did a tube and run race, went for walks to exquisite rock pools for swimming, mountain biked along the river with our kids and just generally enjoyed the cute and cosy campsite. It's the perfect location and also has the most perfect meditation spots on the rocks just behind the campsite. And the best part of all - the owner Steve Black is so personable, walks around the campsite in the early evening talking to all the campers, it really makes you feel at home. And the backpackers is one of the cleanest, most beautiful backpackers lodges I have ever seen. As you can tell we LOVED this place!!!
