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. Guests enjoy this spectacular scenery in the comfort of their private individual garden suites.
Accommodation at Montusi Mountain Lodge
Montusi consists of a large and beautifully thatched main building (with reception, restaurant, terrace, bar, lounge and meeting room) and 14 spacious, tastefully decorated, individual garden suites which are among the most luxurious in the Drakensberg.
Lounge and Bar
The comfortable lounge is a focal point for local and international guests. Meet for chats, a game of scrabble / trivial pursuit / jenga or the occasional event e.g. slide shows, talks, etc. The "Ememeli" Bar has a pool table and darts area upstairs as well as plenty of room downstairs for drinks and animated discussions.
The fenced swimming pool looks out at the escarpment. The surrounding rocks have provided inspiration for this unusual and beautifully crafted pool which makes it the guest's favourite place in summer. Here, we have built a thatched pavilion, great for braais or functions, and more shade is provided by old gum trees, and thatched umbrellas.
Each suite stands alone in the garden 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. Bar service in the suite is available upon request. All suites have a car port for one vehicle. Honeymoon suites have a kingsize double bed and a corner tub for two. The suites all have panoramic views of the Drakensberg’s Amphitheatre. The peace and quiet, like our homemade chocolates and bread, are quite addictable!
