Situated in the Kwazulu-Natal Drakensberg, halfway between Johannesburg and Durban, Montusi Mountain Lodge is the only upmarket destination in the area with a full and uninterrupted view of the Drakensberg's most famous part, the Amphitheatre escarpment. Our guests enjoy this spectacular scenery in the comfort of their private individual garden suites.

Activities on the 1000 hectare estate are diverse. Enjoy the peace.
Since June 2000 the Carte family at Montusi Mountain Lodge has provided an opportunity for their guests to intimately indulge in the freedom of the Drakensberg experience.

We believe in the conservation of the Northern Drakensberg and for ten years we have preserved and planted - changing a Wattle infested wasteland into a rehabilitated conservation area. Our indigenous trees and manmade forests continue to flourish and the resultant birdlife (once non-existent) has become abundant. This ethic has resulted in the return of the Mountain Reedbuck, Vaal Rhebuck, Bushbuck and the elusive Eland to this area once inhabited by Bushmen.

Montusi boasts the privilege of space with 14 suites set in open gardens each with spectacular views of the Amphitheatre and surrounding mountains. This is an idyllic escape to space, comfort and peace.

Property Facilities:
Our intimate restaurant (with under-floor heating and log fireplace) is renowned for sumptuous local cuisine with innovative menus. In summer we eat outside on the Phumleni with the Amphitheatre view enhancing the delicious meals. Breakfast and dinner are included for lodge guests. Light lunches are available between 12.30pm and 14.00pm.

Awarded a Chef’s Hat in the Portfolio Collection, our cuisine is the subject of much praise.

In Room Facilities:
Each suite is decorated in the earthy colours of Africa and has a comfortable bedroom with en-suite bathroom (bath and walk in shower), a lounge with a television, gas operated fire place and private patio. Tea and coffee making facilities, including a bar fridge for fresh milk, are provided. Minibar facility in the suite is available upon request. All suites have a car port for one vehicle. Most suites have a king size double bed (others with two singles beds) and the Honeymoon Suites have a corner tub for two. The suites all have panoramic views of the Drakensberg's Amphitheater.

Attractions:
Hiking is eagerly enjoyed in the Drakensberg.
Our fenced swimming pool looks out at the escarpment. The surrounding rocks have provided inspiration for this unusual and beautifully crafted pool.
The Northern Horse operates spectacular horse trails from the Montusi Estate. The stables are within easy walking distance from the Lodge and all levels of rider are catered for.
Anyone approaching Montusi will not fail to notice the impressive Adventure Centre 10 minutes drive from the Lodge.
We have two dams on the property stocked with trout (and with a beautiful view). Fishing rods can be hired and flies are for sale.
The nearest golf course is 8 km away at the nine-hole Amphitheatre Golf Course at Hlalanathi.
We have access to 45km of mind blowing mountain bike trails ranging from gentle 4 x 4 trails to technical single track.
With some notice we can take you to the nearby tribal area, for a visit to a traditional doctor (sangoma), school and a general insight into contemporary rural Zulu life.
