  • Important Information
Montusi Mountain Lodge is the only 4 Star graded lodge located in the Northern KwaZulu-Natal Drakensberg mountains, near the Royal Natal Nature Reserve, which offers superb views of the Amphitheatre mountain from every building. The focus of the lodge is space, comfort and peace, with personal attention to detail. Touches such as fresh flowers in the suites, stunning individually prepared meals, turn-down service, and complimentary welcome drinks make Montusi something of a Drakensberg gem.

The lodge is situated on a 1,000-hectare conservation estate featuring beautiful streams, a waterfall, three dams, pockets of natural indigenous forests, two caves, and bushman paintings. The estate provides a stunning playground for the exclusive use of Montusi guests to hike, horse ride, mountain bike, fly fish and bird watch. Within the grounds there is also a tennis court and a beautiful natural-look swimming pool.

Nearby attractions include a golf course, an adventure centre and the Royal Natal National Park. The Amphitheatre Golf Course hugs the banks of the Tugela River and provides a challenging nine-hole round. The All Out Adventure centre offers eight adrenaline-pumping activities, including a tree-top cable tour and quad biking, all from one spectacular venue, while the Royal Natal National Park is the home of unlimited hiking, bushman paintings and some small game.

9 Reviews on Montusi Mountain Lodge

We are a family with 3 kids and stayed 5 days in this magnificent and amazing place. Montusi is the best in the area. The staff were great, the unit was amazing and we never wanted it to end. Although it is rated 4 stars, we felt it is 6. It's all about people and attitude, and for that I'll give it 10 stars. Will recommend it to all my friends and family and we will definitely come back again. Thank you very much to all the beautiful people in Montusi Lodge.

Could only stay for 1 night in a cottage. Weather was so so, but a wonderful cottage with all the necessary equipment for a wonderful braai! Enjoyed it very much!

Great venue just the weekend went too fast. Nice food, had great time.


01 July 2013

Great views, friendly staff, accommodation is good and clean, food tastes good, but not a 4 star spread. Wouldn't go back - the smell of greed overshadows the plus points. We decided to leave a day early due to a depressing howling wind, which made the lodge feel more like a retirement village(it is close though). We didn't query the charge for the night, but do feel, if they wanted us back they'd waiver it. They obviously don't care about return customers as most were international tourists. Value for money? Definitely not. Compared to what is out there, one could do better.
