The elegant Mount Sheba Country Lodge is situated near the historic town of Pilgrims Rest in South Africa's Mpumalanga Province. Set amongst mountains and surrounded by indigenous forests, it offers spectacular views of the Mpumalanga Highlands. It is located close to some notable South African tour attractions, including the Blyde River Canyon and God's Window. The location of this hotel makes it an ideal overnight destination between Johannesburg and the Kruger National Park.

There are 25 bedrooms at Mount Sheba, offering comfort and style combined with warm friendly service. The twin suites are positioned in an arched formation. Each suite has its own private lounge area on the lower level while the upper level offers a loft with two single beds. In the lounge area, provision is made for children with either a sleeper coach or single beds. The 14 king suites have an open-plan bedroom leading on to the lounge area, while the executive suite has a separate open-plan bar and lounge area and its own private patio. All suites are en suite, fitted with fireplaces and offer tea/coffee facilities.

Sumptuous dinners are served in the Chandelier Restaurant while the “Potted Owl” bar is a great place to enjoy pre-dinner drinks during your stay. In addition to the restaurant and bar area, the main complex of the hotel also houses a superbly decorated lounge. Breakfast is typically enjoyed in the poolside restaurant with its sweeping views of the surrounding hills.

Riaan's Review

Clients of African Sky have been staying at Mount Sheba for over a decade. During this time, I have received a host of positive feedback regarding the experience. The hotel is situated on a hill in a lush forest with an abundance of walking trails and small waterfalls. It offers an ideal halfway stop between Johannesburg and the Kruger National Park. I have stayed at Mount Sheba on numerous occasions and have always found the service to be good, the setting to be exceptional and the quality of the rooms and the dining to be acceptable.
