Situated in the Drakensberg mountain range in KwaZulu-Natal, Montusi Mountain Lodge has a full and uninterrupted view of the famous Amphitheatre escarpment.
Montusi’s large, thatched main building has a reception area, restaurant, terrace, bar, lounge and meeting room, of which the lounge is a focal point for local and international guests as it is the area where everyone meets for chats, a game of scrabble/trivial pursuit/jenga or the occasional event such as slide shows, talks, etc. The “Ememeli” Bar has a pool table and darts area upstairs as well as plenty of room downstairs for drinks.
The fenced swimming pool, which looks out at the escarpment, has a thatched pavilion, which is great for braais or functions, and more shade is provided by old gum trees, and thatched umbrellas.
Doing nothing is probably the favourite pastime at Montusi Mountain Lodge. With no wake-up calls (in fact, no telephone in the room), hot water all day long and massages, this place provides you with the opportunity to wind down and relax. For those seeking a bit more action, Montusi offers various activities such as tennis, horse riding, trapezing, fly fishing, golf, 4×4 drives, mountain biking and township and cultural tours.
Lying halfway between Johannesburg and Durban, Montusi is small and personal enough to help you organise a function, wedding or conference.
Children of all ages are welcome by arrangement. However, tranquillity is one of the main attractions, so it is asked that children are closely supervised by parents.
