Montusi Mountain Lodge

★ ★ ★ ★

The luxurious Montusi Mountain Lodge features 14 Garden Suites in the beautiful valley of the Northern Drakensberg. The Lodge is three and a half hours away from Johannesburg and three hours from Durban.

The 102ha Montusi estate forms part of a conservation initiative in the Drakensberg region, and as a result, many of the wildlife and birdlife have flourished over the past ten years.

Experience the Drakensberg Mountains at their best during a tranquil and relaxing stay at the four-star lodge. Guests are in free-standing suites set apart in the native gardens. There is a central building with a dining room, lounge, bar, games loft and massage room.

Montusi Mountain Lodge can host 40 guests in 10 Garden Suites, 4 Family Suites and 2 Mountain Suites. Each suite provides a spacious bedroom, a separate sitting area and an en-suite bathroom. Furthermore, the suites also offer a private patio boasting beautiful views of the surrounding mountains. Guests can park their vehicles in the carport which is attached to their suite.

Montusi guests are welcome to relax and enjoy delicious local dishes and innovative menus at the Hotel Restaurant. Closed to the public, guests are in an intimate and elegant setting. During the wintertime guests are seated; in the dining room next to a log burning fire with underfloor heating; the most beautiful setting on a cold Drakensberg day. During the summer, guest can enjoy the panoramic views of the Mountains while dining in the Amphitheater.
