Glenshiel is located at the beginning of the Magoebaskloof in the most northern part of the Drakensberg Mountains. The Magoebaskloof offers a scenic escape on a South Africa tour. It is not far from the town of Tzaneen, which translates to 'basket of hills' in the local Sotho language. This town is located in the Letaba region where the farming of sub-tropical fruit is the primary agricultural venture.

Guests are accommodated in eleven luxury rooms and three executive suites. All rooms welcome guests with a lovely log fire in front of wingback chairs - an ideal place to relax and enjoy a glass of wine. The rooms are decorated with stylish handmade decor and feature comfy king size beds with crisp white linens. All rooms are en suite and offer facilities ranging from safes, hair dryers, and satellite television to tea/coffee facilities. The hotel features indoor and outdoor dining areas as well as a comfortable lounge and reading room. A secluded swimming pool set in a manicured garden provides an ideal place to relax and unwind.

A number of activities are available in the area surrounding Glenshiel. These include abseiling, elephant-back safaris, horseback riding and fly-fishing. Many hiking and walking trails wind their way through the magnificent scenery of the Blyde River Canyon. These trails are very popular with hikers and outdoor enthusiasts, who will also delight in the frequency of waterfalls.

Riaan's Review

A misty mountain retreat with beautiful gardens and a cozy ambience can be enjoyed when staying at Glenshiel. I can recall evenings in the intimate restaurant, with the chill of the mountain air outside enhancing the coziness and comfort provided by the crackling log fire. This hotel is an ideal halfway stop between Johannesburg and the camps of the northern Kruger National Park. The area surrounding Glenshiel is one of the most scenic in South Africa's Limpopo province.
