Mont-Aux-Sources is named after Mont-Aux-Sources, the highest peak in the world-famous Amphitheatre in the northern Drakensberg. Measuring 3282 metres high, it was discovered in 1836 by French missionaries and christened Mont-Aux-Sources, or "mountain of springs". The mighty Tugela has its source here and plummets 2000 metres over the Mont-Aux-Sources plateau making it the second highest waterfall in the world.

Its spectacular mountain setting, and rustic flavour make this hotel a popular destination for weddings, romantic weekends or fun-filled family vacations. Less than four hours drive from either Johannesburg or Durban, the hotel's proximity to Gauteng and KwaZulu -Natal also makes it an ideal conference venue.

The hotel's reputation for peace and tranquillity is not exaggerated. Here you wake up to bird song instead of the sounds of morning traffic. Not surprising since the nearest town of Bergville is over forty kilometres away.

The hotel also has 4 sleeper self-catering chalets. Hotel guests can experience delicious dining in the Gigaba Restaurant, or sip a relaxing sundowner in the Thukela Bar.

Within the grounds are a swimming pool, two tennis courts, a volleyball court, a squash court, a putt-putt course and a bowling green. Guests can also enjoy a game of table tennis, pool, darts, a life size chess set, various board games, a kiddie's playground and a baby-sitting service.

The hotel is an ideal base from which to explore the scenic beauty of the northern Drakensberg. Popular activities include walking, hiking and horse riding in the Royal Natal National Park and surrounding areas. Fishing or swimming in the local dams are also favourite leisure options as are touring the local cultural and historical attractions.
