Montusi Mountain Lodge stretches across the awe-inspiring slopes of the Drakensberg Mountains.
Montusi Mountain Lodge is situated in one of South Africa's most spectacular settings; the Drakensberg of KwaZulu-Natal. Here, guests can experience peace and quiet or, if it tickles their fancy, exhilarating outdoor pursuits. It is ideal for a romantic getaway, surrounded by sheer natural beauty and countryside tranquility.
Guests at Montusi are accommodated in 16 luxury, spacious garden or mountain suites. Each suite has an en suite bathroom and is separate from the others. Seemingly endless views of the majestic Drakensberg are visible from every suite. All suites have their own private lounge with a gas fireplace and a private patio, where guests can unwind and relax. The lodge features a massage room, where various therapeutic massages and treatments can be enjoyed.
Montusi has a thatched roof communal lounge where guests can unwind. Alternatively, enjoy a game of pool in the 'Emeneli' bar while sipping a cocktail. On warm summer days, guests can cool off in the clear, blue waters of the swimming pool. Other activities on offer include; hiking, mountain bike trails, horse riding, golfing and fly fishing. Birders will find the bird life that graces the area fascinating. The gastronome will enjoy the delicious homemade bread and chocolates that are available each day. For youngsters, there is an adventure center a 10-minute drive away from the lodge.
In my opinion, Montusi provides the best lodgings in South Africa's northern Drakensberg. It is a family-run establishment with the care and consideration of two generations evident in the service levels and the experience being created for guests. On my personal stays at the lodge, I found the rooms to be large and well-decorated and the cuisine prepared to the highest standards. It is a great place for the entire family, with a host of nature walks, horse rides and other family-friendly activities on offer.Read More
