My partner and I stayed at the Montusi Mountain Lodge as the first stop over on our holiday to South Africa. It was the perfect place to adjust to the relaxed South African pace of life and an unexpected delight. The sweet little cottages are very comfortable with the most wonderful views imaginable. The food is excellent and the helpful staff do everything possible to make your stay a great experience, including champagne, fresh fruit and chocolates in the room. They organised a surprise singing of Happy Birthday and a cake for my partner and also organised our full days hike to the top of the Amphitheatre (well worth the effort). Waking up at dawn to see the sunlight just touching the top of the mountains was a highlight of the holiday.
All of the complex is beautifully maintained and there are some very good and well marked walks through the surrounding countryside.
I would thoroughly recommend Montusi to anyone intending to visit the dramatic Drakensberg region of South Africa.
